In Just Four Years...

You've completely captured my heart.
Your sweet and affectionate smile,
Your snuggles and your laugh.
The way you light up the room,
And what a tender heart you have.
I am smitten with you, Tommy.
And I'm so proud of my 4 year old.
Happy Birthday, Goldenbear!

Oh, I love birthday posts. Isn't it wonderful to just sit back and savor the amazing child your baby is becoming? (Complete with light saber, of course!)

Thank you for sharing the day -- hope you both make it special! :)

My son, who is 45 made me a gift for mother's day. It is a CD of all the songs with which he identifies me, and him, remembering how I used to sing all the time,my love for Sinatra,Jack Jones,Strisand,Ella. They span the years of his life. On the cover and on the disc he has put a picture of he and I. In the photo I am 42 and he is 4. I cried, of course.
So many memories you have still to make.

Happy Birthday! Your pics are always so cute and your kids are always smiling so nicely. One day you'll have to do a post on what you go through to get them looking so perfectly posed and cooperative ~wink~. How's the pregnancy going?

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
