Today is my middle child's birthday! Happy Birthday sweetie!! He's 21 years old -- he probably wouldn't appreciate me calling him sweetie, would he!! He is such a great son. We went out to dinner for his birthday last night, and he even acted as though he loved all his gifts! Maybe he did, but I doubt that I am THAT good at picking things out for a college senior!
I remember so well the day he was born -- it had been a really, really hot, long summer and I was so huge! I stopped working a couple weeks before his due date since I was sure he would be early. Wouldn't you know it -- he was a week late! He weighed 8 pounds 14 ounces at birth and was absolutely one of the sweetest, chunkiest babies around! He adored his big brother and followed and pestered him constantly. And, in turn, he's been a wonderful big brother to baby sister Maddy. Simply amazing that he can be 21 already! Wow -- the time just flew right by. He lives in an apartment close to campus, but we see him fairly often, which is so nice and such a blessing. And Philip and Catherine joined us for dinner. Rick was feeling good enough to go out and is able to get around fairly well. All of my kids together celebrating -- this is what family is all about! I feel like the luckiest mom in the whole world to have such great kids. Happy Birthday Cboo!! Love you. Mom
