birthday boy

31 years ago my brown-eyed-handsome-man and I were blessed with a bouncing baby boy. He was 8 pounds 10 ounces and 21 inches long. 
Today he is 77 inches long! 
okay 6 feet 5 inches, and I have no idea his weight nor should I.

 He's 3 months old sitting on 
his great grandpa Joe's lap.
Six months old and already 
hanging out with his cousins.

At 8 months he's out with Grandpa Dave.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery
so he's in dad's cap and mom's shoes and 2 yrs old.

 Sporting a much loved
Luke Skywalker t-shirt.

Brother and Bride holding a Pan Am Games torch
that was run past our Indiana home, summer of 1985. 

When he was very little Care Bears first came out. He got the bear Tender Heart. That seems to be very descriptive of him...tender hearted. We are blessed because all our kids genuinely love and care about each other. They enjoy spending time with each other. And Big Brother has always watched out for his sisters. He warned off his friends from dating his sisters even. hahaha.
And even though currently his life is not how he would prefer...we are proud of him. He's staying the course with confidence continuing to be compassionate with friends and family, and continuing the job hunt. 


  1. Happy birthday to your son. Who is long than 65". He's 77". Just sayin' :)

  2. Sounds like some pretty great qualities... you must have raised him well. :)
