Back In Time

January 23, 2014

A Letter To My Baby

August 9, 2013

Alex was wound up like an eight-day clock this past weekend. He turned seven on Thursday, and had to wait a full 48 hours for his birthday party. Folks, you would have thought he was about to receive a million dollar lottery prize. He asked four times in six hours if his friend K would be […]

Seven years ago today, McDaddy and I were blessed with a sweet baby boy that we named Alex Ryan. He weighed ten pounds, five ounces and the nurses gave him the nick-name, King because he was the biggest boy in the nursery. The Lord gave him a cute little blonde head of hair that looked […]
