Today is Dallin's Birthday!
He turned 19 today! It seems like just yesterday that I was headed to the hospital to give birth to this wonderful son of mine! He is the ONLY one that I went into labor without all on my own, I was induced with all the other boys. Dallin's birth came fast, 33 minutes after we arrived at the hospital! No time for any pain meds... He was ready to get here! And I must say well prepared. I know he must have really "listened" in his premortal life when he was being taught how to live here on Earth. He is such a good boy... so, quiet (well, USED to be, hahaha), so obedient, so independent... honestly with 3 older brothers I sometimes felt that i neglected him. He should have just YELLED, "MOM!" like the other boys... but he didn't need me.
He is a GREAT student, did it all on his own. I can't take any credit for it... He is a sweet young man, always willing to help someone else... I have walked in on him praying and/or reading his scriptures... like I said, well prepared before he came to Earth. I am SO very grateful that he came into our family, we are so blessed to have him in our lives! He will be turning in his mission papers soon. He is up at BYU for another semester. I miss him, and will miss him so much more when he is gone for a solid 2 years...
Dallin, I love you. I am SO proud of you... so honored to call you son.
