My Prince Solomon Happy Birthday

When I found out I was pregnant with Solomon it came as quite a shock. 
Emma was only 2,  and Chloe was only 9 months old.
To say I was already busy with 2 little girls would be an understatement.
To say we were surprised would be an understatement.
I'll never forget the conversation that I had with my Dawl Allie that prompted me to go out and get a pregnancy test.
As I was laying there on the couch still in my jammies around noon,
I was telling her how tired I was. I said I felt like I might be getting a cold 
(ahem... don't all surprise pregnancy start off as a cold)
or something because I just couldn't seem to shake the BLEH feeling.
She laughed and said, "You don't think you could be pregnant?"
"Pshh NO," I said. But little did I know that at that point Solomon Russell had already been growing strong for 3 months.

I didn't know it at the time but My Prince Solomon was already surprising me, and he really has never stopped.
I am in a complete and utter state of awe with this young man.
He is total JOY to my heart, and at the very same time
he frustrates me like no other child I own ;) 
Because of how God made him, and how God made me there are many, many times that I don't understand why he does what he does.
But, that being said he helps me to understand my Giant more than I ever could have without him.
So often the things I see him doing remind me of a Giant man I know named Moses and I stop and giggle. 

His heart is tender.
His sense of humor stellar.
His eyes are always looking for the outside of this box we call Life.

He is without a doubt an artist.
an inventor.

He is completely aware of the world and all it's mysteries.
He is a very deep thinker.
I am told on a regular basis from almost every teacher that he has ever had so far, that he brings so much to the table.
He is truly, in many ways, wise like his name sake.
I've only had 11 years and 9 months with this young man and I know this for sure,
he is a world changer.
I'm blown away that he is only 11 years old, and at the same time
already 11 years old.
Happy Birthday Solomon my Prince. 
I love you, Mom~
