Taj Phoenix Nate ...


Taj and arsn

Born. 11 July 2005

Time. 0947

Wieght. 7 pounds 12 ounces

Today was one of the happiest days of my life. Today I was able to hold my first (only) child, Taj. As may heart 'burst' open as I held him, he reached out to hold my thumb, his little tiny hand, with fingers the size of my thumbs nail. (I thought this only happend on the TV.). I truthfully began to cry with complete joy. I now am beginging to understand the strengh behind a fathers love and 'he's my little boy'.

Valura and Taj are now resting in hospital peacefully. Both doing well. This day has had me floating all day, I couldn't have thought of a better person to help me nurture this child with than Valura, I love you... hug ubblove

Thank you. biggrin hug

Wow. Not many words but lots of biggrin and smile and ubblove and ubbrollsmile and ubblol and hug.

Take care all of you, and enjoy this time. It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Congratulations biggrin

I'm going to have to start saving more money so I can come to visit and teach him words he shouldn't know - like 'marmite' wink

Hang on, this is only the 11th, isn't that earlier than you were expecting?

hug hug hug But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Yayyy to mummy and daddy smile I'm so happy for the three of you smile

Please pass on many Princess hugs and kisses to your family Troy
hug wave

Love and kisses
xx A kiss blown is a kiss wasted, the only kind of kiss is a kiss tasted. I'm a woman. We don't say what we want, but we reserve the right to be pissed off if we don't get it. That's what makes us so fascinating and not just a LITTLE bit scary.
