Can this precious first-born child of mine actually be twenty-three today? I just don’t see how it is possible. I just don’t see how that much time has passed since he was like…like… this adorable toddler.
And actually, he was my tiniest baby at 6lbs 5oz. Which didn’t last very long! He grew so much so fast that at two years old, his pediatrician had to keep looking back at his birth date and his current weight and height… shaking his head and saying, “Wow! He is big. He is really big!”
(He was always in the 110 – 120th percentile of his age group.)
He was such a sweet, sweet little guy. So happy and loving. Barely gave me a moment’s trouble.
(I think I posted these same photos last year for his birthday. I need to scan in some different ones!)
I am very proud of the young man that he has become.
Happy Birthday Sweet Darren!
May your future be filled with adventure, peace, love, and contentment.
