Exactly Sixteen Years Ago...

I was falling in love.

I was slightly scared, and a little overwhelmed. But mostly - full. And connected. It's possible I'm not remembering exactly how scared I was.

I looked into the most amazing, serene, beautiful eyes of my new baby boy, born at home. The first thing I said after he was born? "Hello, sweetness." Then, "That wasn't so bad!" It really wasn't.

I am thrilled and blessed beyond measure to have shared the past sixteen years with such a beautiful, compassionate, creative, aware, funny, thoughtful, empathetic, amazing boy. He has made my life rich beyond compare.

Happy birthday, sweetie!

I just had my sweet sixteen moment with my oldest son back in september. I don't believe I knew what unconditional love meant until I met him. And then I met my second boy and it was love all over again. Happy Birthday to your son!
I found your blog through your comment on Queen of Shake Shake. I can relate to you well being a single mom of two boys myself. See ya later!
