A Moment of Mommy Nostalgia

This is my baby at 4 weeks old. The most beautiful baby boy in the world will become a teenager tomorrow, on Mother's Day. I brought him home from the hospital on Mother's Day in 1997. It's making me quite teary. Hugs to all of the moms out there, especially mine, who gave me the "I hope you have a child just like you" blessing (curse? LOL) when I was little.

And I did. Two of them. The most wonderful, amazing, life-changing, challenging, blessings in the world. One of whom is now going to be a teenager. (help!)

Hugs and happy Mother's Day to everyone!!

Also, that baby? He's the one who scanned, cropped, and emailed the baby picture to me since Mom can't figure out the new scanner. Sigh. Feeling Way Old. :)

Awww, he's adorable!

Happy Mother's Day, Happy Birthday to your boy (who sounds like a sweetie as well as a cutie), and good luck with those teenage years. :)

Cherish everyday with your children. Love them ,and kiss them, and let them know of all the love you possess for them. Take it from someone who wanted to have children so bad and was unable to. Have a very happy and special mother's day. Let them know how you wouldn't trade then for all the fame and fortune you could ever achieved because they are worth more than all of it.Happy Mothers Day to you and all the mother's who blog with you and Happy Birthday to your teenage son. What a joyous gift God gave you!!God Bless you all!!!

How adorable! I know 2 other folks who have little ones celebrating a bday on Mom's Day. How sweet. My oldest is 6.5 and I'm freaking out about the end of kindergarten - where does the time go?! I can't imagine a teen! Congrats! and Happy Birthday to him!

Hope everyone had a happy mother's day. He was such a cute baby! Ya, know time really does fly by, you don't think so at the times when they are driving you nuts...but it really does.

My daughter turned 18 this year and I just can't believe it.
