I'll Love You Forever

I'll love you forever.

I'll like you for always.

As long as I'm living....

My baby you'll be.

Yesterday was a day met with mixed emotions for me.
My oldest son, Alexander, turned eighteen years old.
As I look back over these last eighteen years,
all I can think is
"Where did they go?"

Where is the baby that I held in my arms
and counted all of his fingers and toes?

Where is the baby who had colic
and constantly cried and I prayed to God to get me through it?

I eventually got through colic, first steps,
first day of school and so many other milestones in his young life.

All though he is a teenager through and through...
(He calls me a dinosaur....geesh)
I am sooooooooo proud of the man that he has
grown up to be.

He continues to amaze me
as he still has firsts in his life and how beautifully he takes
everything in stride.

Happy Birthday kiddo!!!
We made it......

 I didn't post any baby pictures up
as promised.

(I'm saving those for graduation...)
