Happy 16th Birthday Son

16 years ago today I gave birth to my first child, a boy.

DH and I are very proud of him. Yes, we experience the usual teen things but all in all we couldn't be more proud. He is showing himself to be a very strong young man with convictions. We have brought him up to know God and we pray that he continue along that path that we know God has for him.

He is a great older brother
<(meeting little sister)
who likes to tease as much as he can. When the chips are down he is there to help pick up. He is very intelligent and doing very well with his schooling. He is dual enrolling at the local college for his Junior year. He has loved baseball since he was 8 & continues along that path.
He has played Varsity with the high school since freshman year. We just love to watch him play. (10yr old Allstar)>
He also taught himself how to play the guitar & leads our youth band at church. He is amazing to me.

AW - Dad and I love you so much. It is so hard to let go sometimes but we are trying little by little to help you spread your wings. You will always be my little boy and while I may see that little boy when I look at you, I am also in awe of the young man God is growing you into. Thank you for sticking to your convictions & continuing to pursue God.

Tell me about your 1st child. Was it hard for you to let go?

Be Blessed & Healthy!!
