Happy Birthday to you, my favorite son!

December 28, 2014

I cannot believe that we are celebrating our boy’s 14th birthday today! 14!!! I can still remember holding him in my arms for the first time that cold December night 14 years ago. Everything about that day is still so vivid in my mind, just like it happened yesterday and yet, here we are 14 years later, with a handsome young man who now towers over his mama. A boy with a mind of his own and a wit to rival his dad’s. He’s certainly grown into his own person and I cannot wait to see what the next few years will bring. Though I wish, time would move a little slower at times, I know I can’t stop the wheels from spinning. So instead of bemoaning the fact that my boy isn’t so little anymore, I will look forward to what time will bring and embrace the person he is and will become!

I love you my son! I wish you the happiest of days, today and every day!!!

Happy Birthday Conner 14

    I found your blog through a fellow blogger, and thought I would stop by and say hi! It would totally make my day if you did the same! I’d love to keep in touch! –

      Hi Gingi! Thanks so much for stopping by! I wish, I could stop time sometimes. It seems just like yesterday that my son was a 15 months old toddler.
      Going to head over to return the favor!!! πŸ™‚

        I knew time would go fast, everyone warned me.. I just didn’t realize HOW fast!! Picturing Tessa as a teen literally makes my heart stop, haha.. You have a lovely family, btw! So happy to have found your blog! Looking forward to following you!

          Thanks, Gingi! I used to feel the same way. I just couldn’t imagine having teens… but now that we are here, it really isn’t so bad. It’s pretty cool to have interesting conversations with him and to see the things he’s interested in!!! You still have a little time, just enjoy it and her!
