Another Birthday!

This is a very sad day for me. My Baby is 17! He is going to graduate from High School in a few weeks. How do these things happen so quickly? I wish I could show y’all his baby pictures. He was pretty cute, and besides, it would totally embarrass him, which, since he thinks that is my job in life, I should do, yes? But sadly, that was before any digital camera was in my grasp. And, while it is possible to scan and upload such photos, I don’t have the time right now. Maybe later…mwwhhaaaa…..

Anyway, I’ll settle for two more recent pictures for now. First, from his Jr High Promotion back in ’04

And to make him happy, this photo from our three day “mini cruise” in April ’06. Daniel had just turned 15 and Jeremy was nearly 18. Something about being way bigger than your “big” brother makes him proud. Go figure. 🙂



  1. Happy Birthday to Daniel, and kudos to you. They do grow up quickly…

  2. It is those milestones that hit you over the head. They are growing up and away from us. Our roles are changing in their lives which in turn creates all the personal questioning.

    With a youngest at 15, and the oldest at 29 I have discovered that they never stop needing us as MOM! Just how that expresses changes over the years.

    All the love you have put in means that he may not contact you or depend on you as much next year because you have raised an excellent young man who is independent, confident and capable.

    Besides wishing him happy birthday from all of us – pat yourself on the back for a job well done.

  3. Haha…

  4. What handsome young men you have raised. These teen years are so bittersweet…so full of yuck at times but you know they’re grown and gone in just another blink of the eye. Happy Birthday to your young man. And I’m right there behind you.

  5. You have handsome young men! Happy Birthday!
