Oh my, 16 years old ?!?
How on earth did that happen so quickly ??
My first born.
The adorable little boy who took my breathe away at first sight, and has had me on my toes ever since.
I have loved you since the moment I knew I was having you, and my love has only grown each and everyday since.
For a while it was just you & me, but we always did okay.
Better than okay.
We had each other and I wouldn’t change those special memories for anything.
Funny though, as I look back, I realized that as much as you needed me to feed and nourish you, I needed YOU just as much.
You nourished my soul and fed my heart with a love I had never known before.
YOU made me a Mama for the very first time.
I had a son.
God so graciously trusted ME with the gift of you and I will forever be grateful.
My sweet, happy, rambunctious, playful, silly and smart little boy.
You have grown into such a wonderful and amazingly warmhearted young man.
The love and care that you show for me, your sisters, your family and people in general is just incredible.
You are so warm and compassionate.
Smart and inquisitive.
As unfocused and scattered as you may be at times (sorry), you always surprise me with something wonderfully unexpected.
I am so, so proud of you each and everyday Mikey.
“I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, as long as I’m living my baby you’ll be”
