My First "Baby's" Birthday

Several weeks ago my First Baby Boy,
had a significant birthday.
He turned 21 years old!
Here he is with Daddy in the hospital,
safe and sound after a very
difficult labor and delivery,
which ended up being a C- Section.

He has been a strong-willed little fighter
from the beginning!

Named by his Poppy,
"The Gusto Kid"
My Boy never just walked-
He ran, and ran, and ran...

A curious and very smart little guy,
always asking
He still does...

First Birthday Fun!

First hair cut.
It hurt my heart so much
to cut off his little baby curls in the back. :(
Following Daddy,
As little boys will do.

I love this Amazing Young Man so much!

So, here is my moment to talk about
my child, as only a Mommy can.

Yep, this is my day that I am going to go on and on...

My First Boy is-
A Hugger
(I LOVE that!)
Loves his brothers so much,
A loving Son
Brother, Grandson,
Nephew,Cousin, Friend,
Boyfriend to Jessica :)
He always thinks out of the box,
Very Unique,
Enthusiastic about things he loves,
He is kind,
He is a Blessing to our family!!!

I Love You Hoon!!!

My greatest hope, desire and prayer,
for all three of my boys,
is not wealth or fame,
but that they
Love & Follow The Lord.

"I will instruct you and teach you
in the way you should go.
I will guild you with My eye."
Psalm 32:8
