Happy birthday to my "baby" boy!

On April 13, 1993, I gave birth to an 8 pound, 4 ounce, 21 inch long baby boy. From the first moment I laid eyes on him, he amazed me, awed me, and owned my heart. Today, he is an 18 year old handsome young man who still amazes me, awes me, and owns my heart every single day.

I asked him last week what kind of cake he would like for his birthday and without any hesitation he said, "A boobie cake!" I rolled my eyes and thought "oh, Lord, help me!" but a boobie cake is what he got! It turned out really cute and it tasted good too!

While the past 18 years have been tough at times, I wouldn't change one single minute of it. I've made some mistakes but this precious child loves me in spite of that. He's never known his father but I feel like he's turned out just fine. He has a beautiful smile and a loving spirit. He's awesome and I am so blessed that God chose me to be his Mom! Happy birthday, my beautiful "baby" boy!

Until next time. . .

  4. Happy Birthday to your handsome young man Donna. The boobie cake is adorable! I know how much little boys can win their momma's hearts.

    Have a wonderful day,

  5. Very touching story that you took the time to share. Happy 18th Birthday to Brandon -- He looks like a fine young man and may all of his birthday wishes come true!

  6. Happy belated Birthday to your handsome son!
    What a lovely tribute Donna! And now your baby boy is all grown up! It's kind of exciting and kind of sad too to see them ready to fly from the nest.
    And that cake, too cute!
    And girlfriend, your tulips are amazing! I am very jealous. We are still waiting for spring here. It started and then it went backwards and actually snowed yesterday. UUUUGHH! I may have to move!
    Hugs friend,

  7. My daughter's birthday is April 13th too! She was born in Romania, we adopted her when she was 15 months old. This week she's away at church camp for the first time, and I'm missing her so badly! I know I will have to get used to letting her go completely one day, and I dread it. Thanks for sharing your son's birthday, prom, and graduation with us.
