Happy Birthday To My Son!

You know that Kenny Chesney song "Don't Blink"? That's how I feel today...my son is turning 40 years old! How can that be? I still think of him as my "little boy" even though he towers over me.

Me and my baby boy at 2 1/2 months.    I still remember the day this photo was taken.   My husband was working full time and in college part time and we didn't have much money at the time but I couldn't wait to have some pictures made of our darling boy.   So off we went to K-Mart (which was basically all we could afford at the time).   I had dressed him in one of his Feltman Brothers outfits.   Since he couldn't sit on his own, the photographer had me hold him....I sure wasn't dressed or made up for a photo but I didn't care....sorry it's so grainy but it's quite old!   

Of course, we've had our ups and downs over the years, what parent and child haven't, but he has far exceeded my expectations as an adult.   He is so successful in his job and is a great daddy and husband.


Both of my "babies" at the Summit in Birmingham a couple of years ago for another birthday celebration....aren't they "purdy"?

Shane and his sweet family.... (this granddaughter loves to "pose"!)

I took this one at the lake over the 4th of July...look at those dimples!   That was the first thing I noticed about him when he was born...he was such a pretty baby!

A few years ago, my sister gave me a book entitled "I'll Love You For Always".   I thought it was a little strange but after I read it, it became one of my favorites.   I can't read it without crying.   I loved it so much I gave a copy to my daughter and daughter in law when they became mommies.    It still makes me cry!

Happy Birthday Shane!   I love you!!!

Happy Birthday to your son! We have that book as well. And, one year my youngest's teacher had the kids read it out loud, and record a version for their mom's for mother's day. Makes me bawl everytime!!

Happy Birthday to your handsome son! I think that book would make me cry too. Just the title alone touches a nerve!

Happy Birthday to your son! Sweet dimples. And Yes! Your littles are lovely.

Mine was 40 this year too. I'm still in shock. He got half dimples from hubby and me. One cheek dimple and a chin dimple.
