Happy Birthday to #3! It was 17 years ago today that this little guy came into our lives. He was the easiest of all the deliveries even though he came out a whopping 10.5 pounds. I was in labor most of Halloween weekend that year. I could not waddle down the street to go trick or treating so I stayed home and gave out candy. When we finally made it to the hospital I was so grateful for the wonderful nurse we ended up with. She had me laughing the whole time. Maybe that is why he was such an easy going baby. Tagged along with his brothers to all their games waiting for the day that he too could play. He would go with just about anyone. People were always amazed at how well he spoke. He was a little chatter box. He's more on the quiet side now. And not so little anymore. At 6'2 I have to look up at him now. He only has a year and half and he will be off to college. That will be one sad day for me. All of my kids out of the house. What will I do? I try not to think about that. He still can make me laugh like he did when he was little. He will always be my baby. No matter how far up I have to look.
I will leave you with this Bill Cosby clip. Every parent should watch this among all of his other ones. He's a wise parent. I hope you enjoy. Makes me laugh no matter how many times I watch it. And for crying out loud, let them eat chocolate cake :)
