Happy Birthday, Little Son!

My baby boy turned 11 today - the third child born on the third day of the third month. It sounds so cliche to say "Where does the time go?" but that's truly how I feel - wasn't it just last year that this tiny little man was born 5 weeks early, after I spent three weeks in the hospital on total bed-rest? When I cried tears of joy when he let out a wail at birth (because they told me he was so early he might not even cry)? When I got to bring him home 6 days later and introduce him to his big brother and sister? He's growing up so fast, and this one is the hardest for me because he is the baby - the last one.

I'm so proud of you, sweet boy! Happy Birthday - and many, many more!

Mmmmmm...I want some of that cake! :)

Happy Birthday big guy. You know that 11 is a milestone b/c you can no longer use your hands to "show" people how old you are. ;)

There's something about this picture that lets you see him in his late teens. Gonna be a heartbreaker, this one. Happy birthday!

Happy Birthday, Little Son! And, yes, cjh, he most certainly will be a heartbreaker! Not only is he way handsome, he is way sweet as well. I love that boy!

Sons are special. I see so much of you in his face. And maybe he can overcome the family hairline stigma. We love the kid!!
