Wow.  My oldest turned 14 years old today.

I still remember the pregnancy, birth, wee little baby like they were just yesterday.

I want to write a long meaningful post to summarize the past 14 years.  I'm literally lost for words.

How did he become this young MAN?  That sweet little baby that is now taller than me.  Would rather be with his friends and girlfriend.  Won't let me hug or kiss him anymore.  Not just in public.  I'm not allowed to do those things at home either.

Though there were times when he pushed my limits, I am more proud of him each and every day.  No matter how old he is, he will always be my wee little babe.


  1. no matter how old they get....they will always be your "wee little babe".....even when they are in their 30's and 40's............

    1. If you can figure out where the time goes, will you let me know? I have a nephew that insists on growing up too.

  2. Gah! It did eat my comment!

    Look at those shoes! And those chubby cheeks! Time slips by at an alarming rate, no? Happy birthday to NPH...may these next few years crawl by...
