Happy Birthday Buddy

November 19, 2009

12 years ago today, this little man was born. Being raised with 4 sisters and then having Janna, our daughter, born 3 years before, I didn’t know the first thing about boys. Little did I know at the time how he would forever change our lives. He was our curtain climber, into everything and always with a smile on his face. Being our last child, he had to put up with me not encouraging him to grow up too fast. I wanted to savor each stage for as long as possible. I rejoiced at each new accomplishment, but inwardly cried knowing he was growing up way too fast for this Mom. As I look back, I remember the little boy that looked up to his sister. That wanted to be just like her, and patiently stood there while Janna painted his nails and then dressed him up with tutu’s and feather boas. (No, buddy, I am not sharing that picture here… don’t worry!) He has now grown into a quite caring, thoughtful, creative, intensely competitive boy that still loves to snuggle with his mom. (Buddy, please remember that you will never be too big or too old to snuggle with your mom!) Buddy, we are so proud of you and I am so blessed and honored to be your mom. Happy Birthday! Love you!

I have two boys and certainly wouldn't know what to do with girls. Happy birthday to your little man! :) Blessings, Tammy

I remember when he was just a baby and he "bowled me over" with those big blue eyes of his:) Connor, you are quickly (too quickly)becoming a fine young man and it has been such a joy watching you grow. Happy, Happy 12th Birthday! We love you more...
