First of all, I want to know how this happens! Yesterday, Dawson was born and spent a week in the NICU, and now he's already 12! This is an incredibly special birthday for him and I am so grateful that it fell on Labor Day this year so that everyone was home!

We had a special birthday breakfast for Big D and he was so happy! Then we spoiled the little (big) man with a birthday feast at Red Lobster! Yes! I think that this definitely was a huge feast!

He never ceases to amaze me with his zest for life and sense of humor. He is very witty!!!

He also heard the birthday song from a couple of the workers there!

And shared his ice cream with Faith! Please notice that he has long hair in the picture! That was not planned, but a fun little twist! Yippee!

He fell asleep in the car while the girls were shopping for family pictures. We were able to pull this baby off on his birthday too! Can't wait to see the end results! You are going to love them!

And a rush to get home where party guests (family) were already arriving. We enjoyed the best pumpkin roll (as per Dawson's request) and he opened a couple of presents (mostly clothing along with cash and a nerf gun)! Happy birthday Big D!

Dawson, we are so lucky to have you in our lives! This journey would not be the same without you! I hope that you continue to share your passions with those around you and write everything you think of in your journal! You are the best! Muah!
