“It’s Nicky’s birthday!” Emma said, bouncing up and down.
Nic beamed at her. “Yeah. Thanks Emmy.”
Then Emma launched into a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday, not once, not twice, but three times! By the third time she was beginning to lose her audience, not that she cared. Nic was intent on opening his presents. “Where’s Dad?” he asked more times than Emma sang Happy Birthday.
For the record, it was 6:24AM.
A trip down memory lane through pictures and text…
Two years ago I interviewed Nic about what it was like for him to have Emma as his sister. Things have certainly changed since then. For a view into a year or so later, click ‘here‘ and then more recently, ‘here.’
That look on my face is joy (I know you wouldn’t have guessed) mixed with exhaustion. My labor was over 38 hours long!
At our wedding, getting ready to nurse, yup nothing conventional about anything in our lives, even then.
On our honeymoon in Taxco where we all got sick.
Big Brother, Nic.
In a flash – 12 years later
Nic and Em
Merlin looks on. I imagine he’s thinking – Is there room for me? No, maybe I’m safer here. They certainly are curious creatures, these humans.
Happy Birthday Nic!

Happy Birthday Nic!
You are the best grandson ever (never mind that you are my only grandson)
I love you,
He loved the card you sent. He wrote you back! XXX
Happy Birthday, Nic!
Thanks so much E.!
By the way, your kitty looks a lot like our Merlin. We looooove Merlin. One of these days I’m going to devote an entire post to him, even though Em ignores him most of the time.
ppy Birthday Nic! and happy birthing day to you!
Thank you Kelly. And what a birthing day and night and day it was!
Happy Birthday Nic! Great photos of beautiful babies. Oh, to be unconventional… please write more about that so I can know what it’s like!
Oh Charlotte, I will. That is not something that would occur to me to write about, but I can, oh, boy, I can…
What a handsome young man! Happy Birthday to your Nic! They look so much alike! Like my Brett and Erin. :O) I hope he has had an awesome birthday so far!! Wishing him many more!
Thank you Becky.
Sleepover with 6 boys this Saturday, as the celebrations continue…
