I’ll never forget 12/12/12.

I was sitting in a meeting at work as I was receiving texts from my mom about David’s approaching entry into this world.

This was our family’s first addition since losing Nick, and our hearts were all ready to share love with a new little person.

Maura was in labor in room twelve of the hospital and 12 o’clock was quickly approaching.

I was thinking to myself, “What if he is born at 12 o’clock in room 12 on 12/12/12 exactly twelve days before his due date?!?

Wouldn’t that be awesome!?!?!

Twelve o’clock passed by, but the texts from my mom were coming quickly; and my co-worker and I looked at the clock and both thought the same thing!

Is this little guy going to join us at 12:12?!?!?

Sure enough!!!!!!!!!!!

With no help from the doctors by stalling or rushing his arrival,

David became part of our lives at that very minute!!

7-12s from David suddenly joined our already incredibly significant 7-11 from Nick!!

Ever since that moment, David has been such a gift to our family.




 David has taught us just how precious life is all over again.

He’s been the topic of so many conversations!

He keeps us all laughing!

He brings out the best in all of us!!

I honestly can’t imagine life without our little Weasel!




I just had to take a few minutes this morning to say,

“Happy birthday, David!!  

Uncle Tim and Tamaw love you so much!

We can’t believe you are already two years old!”
