Happy Birthday, Little Man!


A year ago today, I was still on the road... racing as fast as I could to meet this Little Man.  He made it into the world before I could make the sixteen hour drive... but, I did get to hold him within a few hours of his birth.  Oh, how special that was!  Indescribable!


It hardly seems that a whole year could have passed so quickly...
Yet, so slowly, too...
We've missed so many precious moments; yet, treasured the ones we have been blessed to enjoy. 
His mom and dad are doing such a fine job raising him.  I am so proud.



Two weekends ago, we celebrated Little Man's birthday, while he was here in Texas.  He didn't really know what to think about his Longhorn cake... but, he was sure lovin' the pancakes his mom made him this morning! He had his very own special birthday breakfast.  (I am thankful for Skype... let's me "sort of" be there...)



Little Man... you are the most wonderful blessing in all our lives.  I am thankful every moment of every day that you are ours... You are so very loved.  Happy Birthday, Alex! 

I miss you all... Give my Little Man some lovin' from his Noni.  XOXOXOXOXOXOX

He really is the most wonderful blessing, isn't he? You told me he would be. As usual, you were right. Good thing you hinted (repeatedly) that I should give this parenting thing a go. LOL! I love you - for how much you love me AND how much you love this Little Man. You're the best mom and Noni that we could ask for. Love you so big. XOXOXOXOXO

What sweet words for your sweet Grandson. He truly is a blessing and has made your family richer in so many ways. I too am glad that you hinted and she listened! :) Now keep hinting for baby #2!

It was great seeing you and Evan last weekend. Glad you enjoyed your time with them and I know you are looking forward to your vacation in August!

You and Amanda threw such an awesome birthday party for Alex! I sure wish we could've celebrated with you guys. It's so hard to imagine life without that precious little man, isn't it? You are so right, what a blessing he has been to us all! 1 year of memories down, a lifetime more to go!

Cute as a bug in a rug! I know he is just so precious to you and I know you wish they were all closer. Thank goodness for computers and digital cameras and skype!

Happy Birthday, Little Man!

Just found you.....after reading your profile.....we have much in common. I, too, am the proud grandma to one fab grandson.....he is now 7.....but I remember all those birthdays, and what a blast it was when he was a toddler.

Having them so far away really stinks, doesn't it? Thank goodness for planes! Though with the new regulations and fears, I think I'd just as soon drive!

One of the most interesting aspects of reading and writing blogs is the ability to share events and memories and how reading the anecdotes of another blogger often jogs ones own memory.

One of my favorite photos is of my second born on his first birthday, cake & frosting smeared all over his "smush" as my father used to call it. It's friggin awesome. So is your Little Man's "smush".
