My oldest son Chris turns 27 today. Where has the time gone? It's funny to say, but I can still remember being pregnant with him ... I remember the first time he moved inside me ... I remember wondering if he was a girl or a boy (they didn't do a lot of ultrasounds in the 80's) ... I remember the surprise when my water broke 2 weeks early! and yea, I do remember most everything about his birth, even the pain lol. 27 years of firsts ... sleeping through the night, steps, words, first truck, camping trip, dry night, trike, Disney movie, shoes with laces, first day of school, lego kit, first A and first F, first close friend, first sleepover, first t-ball game, first girlfriend, first car ... yep a lot of firsts .. most good, but a few bad ... but that's what growing up is all about, hoping that the good out weighs the bad.
He's all grown up and I am so proud of the young man he has become. He's a loving husband and loyal friend. He's a caring son and grandson and a pretty darn good big brother. He has a good job that he loves (most of the time) and has a passion for music and cars. He loves the outdoors and also loves technology.
Happy Birthday Chris,
I hope that your dreams are fulfilled
With all of lifes pleasure
And that everything you do
You will always treasure
Not only on your day of birth
But all of your life
May you always find happiness
And live it without strife
