Happy 23rd Birthday!!

Have you ever seen someone so in love with a baby or maybe that person was you, that you thought your love would just explode.  That's the emotion I've felt with the birth of both of my sons.  So today my baby turns 23 and we celebrate him!  I can't believe how fast time has flown from that glorious August 20, 1987 birth date.

He has grown into a great man that we are so proud of.  While, I've always considered him my strong willed child, this is defniately not a flaw, but a blessing.  This took me so many years to realize.  He speaks his mind and will always give you an honest answer, even if it's not always what you really want to hear.  While he's taller and bigger than his dad and brother, he's still my baby.  He has a quietness about him, strong, yet thoughtful and carefully thinks things through.  He always seems surrounded by his friends and cousins, he can be such a jokester, he makes us laugh so much.  I can't say enough about him, he's just my favorite youngest son!

Here he is with his good friend.  We'll be celebrating his birthday today and this weekend because after all you can't just celebrate just one day, right?

Happy Birthday son, we love you so much!!

  3. Happy Birthday to your baby! :) I have three boys myself and it's so hard to imagine them all grown up and taller than me someday!

  4. I vote y'all party the rest of the month! I always celebrate the kids' birthdays as if they were my own...after all...I was there too!
    Handsome son...takes after his mama! What would we do without our children. They are our constant reminder that at least we did one thing right! Happy birthday!

  5. In a "blink of an eye" they are all grown up. And you ask yourself, "where did the time go"? Then I'm reminded how very blessed I am to still have my kids be part of my daily life. I know not everyone has this. Happy birthday to your youngest, and I hope you all party like "rock stars" to celebrate his birthday!

    Take care, Sue
