Happy Sixteenth Birthday Son

Today my son Kyle is sixteen years young!  I can't believe my baby is 6'2" and soon to have his license.  It doesn't matter his age or size, he'll always be my baby boy.  Our favorite book from when he was a youngster is "Love You Forever".  Anyone who has a son, especially an only child should read this book.

Happy Birthday Kyle!
You are truly a blessing.
Always follow your heart.
We love you!

Happy Birthday to Kyle. My son is grown and long away from home but to me he will always be my baby boy.

The pictures are such precious memories.

Awww! What a wonderful small journal of his life to show us. He is so adorable!!!! My son is over 40 now, and when I look way up at him, all I see is my baby, it never goes away. Happy Birthday Kyle!!!!

I Love You Forever is the only childhood book I saved from the kids' growing up days.....I get tears just thinking of the story and I haven't read it in years :)

Dear Sweet Marie,

Please pass on my very best cheerful birthday wishes to your son Kyle.

Wow! Sixteen.

I feel exactly the same way about my boy, he's ten, and an only child. He's says to me every now and then, "Can you believe in eight more years I will be an adult."

Bless his heart! But there's no way I can possibly think of him being eighteen.

He does like it though that he is now officially a tween. Too funny!

I have the book "Love you to the Moon and Back," and I'd love to read "Love You Forever," so I'll Google it and see if I can get one. Thank you for recommending it.

Wishing you and your loved ones an enjoyable birthday weekend.


With love, Kerrie xoxo

Happy Birthday to Kyle. YOu know how when he was little, and diapers were everywhere and you'd been sleep deprived for about 3 months? People told you to enjoy it because it would go so fast and you thought they were masochistic. Enjoy only picks up speed from here and becomes a blur of milestones. May joy me the main mark of all of them. Glad to have found your blog.

Your son had a birthday on the same day as my son! And my son is 6' 2" also. Mine was 35, but he'll always be my baby as he's the youngest of my two. They sure grow up fast! Hope your good-looking son had a great birthday, Happy Birthday to him!
