Time goes by so fast, doesn't it?
You were my baby until March 29, 2007, when Brady's birth forced you into the dreaded 'middle child' position.
You needn't have worried about losing your place in the limelight. You shine no matter where you're at or what you're doing.
You made a statement right off the bat, weighing 10 pounds, 4-1/2 ounces. The hospital staff was impressed! The first thing I said when you were born was, "He looks like a lumberjack!" You were solid as a rock and looked like a mighty man!
As it was then, so it is now. You impress everyone you come in contact with. At 6 feet 2 inches and 245 pounds, some might even feel intimidated!
It's been a blast watching you play center on the football team and I know you're excited about the upcoming season, having a new coach and all.
There's a time to laugh, a time to cry, a time to walk, and now a time to drive! Well, you already know you didn't get a new car for your birthday (guess the old Taurus will have to do), but at least you got a nice laptop, right?
Oh my goodness, has it really been sixteen years? It's hard for me to believe in two short years, you'll be graduating high school!
I'm not ready for you to leave the nest, yet I know the time is fast approaching. Let's enjoy the time we have left, before you go off to college or join the armed forces or run off to NYC to pursue an acting career. The sky's the limit!
Whatever you decide to do, it's going to be fun watching you grow. Keep smiling, keep laughing, and have fun!
I love you, Sweetie!
