One of My Best Accessories

We interrupt this blog to parade down a sappy, sentimental lane. Today is my son’s 9th birthday….and as always on my kid’s birthdays, I’m nostalgic (and horribly aware of how old I’m getting)! Excuse my indulgence for a moment while I look back at my first born.

Seriously, the happiest, drooliest yummiest thing ever!
He lived in this Spidey costume for 18 months….no lie. Was only an issue when he slithered on his belly in public places.
Look at that face!
He really is as sweet as he looks.
I am so glad he was able to know one of the most important men in my life, Poppoo (“Hi Sugarplum!”). And there was never a more proud great-grandfather!
Soccer stud!

Now he’s grown as tall as my chin (and loves pointing it out!). Happy, happy birthday sweets! You are loved and adored…and daddy and I are so proud of the compassionate, thoughtful, smart, giving, faithful young man, son and brother you are growing into!

*I may not feel like this tomorrow, however, as we’re taking a carload of smelly, loud, hyperactive boys to Benihana and The Last Airbender! (I wonder what else is showing at the same time? )*

    He looks like his great grand-father! Very handsome little boy. Just wait until he's taller than you. All of mine are now and my youngest, who is all of 3/4 of an inch taller than me, loves pointing that out constantly.
