Lucky 13

Hard for me to believe, but my boy was born 13 years ago today. Now go ahead and tell me that this is not the cutest little angel who ever lived.




















But time flies and kids grow, and here's my boy today, 13 very short years later.



















He's such a good kid--I don't know how we got so lucky. Happy Birthday, Buddy. We love you very much!

  • I just love that baby picture of him--I still carry it in my wallet.

    He is a good kid. Except when he calls me "Grandma" by mistake (at least I think it's unintentional).

    Happy birthday, Al!

  • Thanks a lot, now I'm hysterical. My baby isn't even born yet and I'm already have hormonal meltdowns that she's going to grow up too fast!

    Just for the record...you didn't get lucky with A. He turned out so great because you did your job well!

    It's easy to see by looking at his picture that he's a good kid with a big heart.

    Happy Birthday, A!

  • Sharkey - I let Alex read the post and comments, and he assured me that it's completely unintentional. :)

    Tysgirl - When Alex read your comment, he said that he agreed with the part where I did my job well. (He's such a sweetie!) But then he said, "Well then how do we explain Catherine?" Smarty pants.

  • Happy (belated) Birthday Alex!!

    He looks like such a nice kid and he was SO cute as a baby!

  • Belated birthday wishes! Your young man looks like someone H-J would hang out with (or at least, I'd encourage the idea).
    My youngest shares his name and seems to have those same wonderful traits. Do you think it's in the name? ;)

  • I demand some pictures of the kids. A is cute and all, but I'll be needing some new pictures of the girls now!
