The Little One on vacation.

Birthdays are such special days. I’ve always loved celebrating my birthday, and have never shied away from letting people know when it is (Aug. 29th, by the way). I’m not ashamed of getting older…it sure beats the alternative.

But today is the birthday of my youngest son, and that means so much more to me than my own birthday. I’d always wanted a large family, but time and circumstances being what they were, I had pretty much resigned myself to having just one child.

Sweet little one
Don’t you know
You’re my baby
I love you so
