Happy 19th Birthday, Kyle!!!!!

Wow! I can't believe you'll be 19 at 11:30 pm tonight! NINETEEN!!!!

I can't believe it's been that long. That long ago that I was in labor - very fast labor - with you. Bed at 10:30 that night and you were born an hour later. Fast, fast, fast, and you've been headstrong ever since.

Happy Birthday. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday, Dear Kyle. Happy Birthday to you.


I found this little birthday music box a couple of days ago, but it wasn't for sale....yet. I went back again, and it was finally for sale. A REALLY good price too.

I woke up Kyle this morning by putting this on his pillow while he was sleeping. When he realized what was happening, even with the sleep still in his eyes, he gave me his big alligator grin. He is still as cute as ever! True, he is a man now, but he's still my little birthday boy on the 16th of July! That'll never change. AND considering he has spent his last two birthdays on his "personal-independent" summer vacation in California, I'm glad I finally got to see him on his birthday - even if he is at work at his new job until at least 11:30 tonight. Hope he's having fun.

Oh what fun it is to be a mom. A mommy. A mama. Yep, that's me. And I'm happy!!!!

I found you through a comment you left over at the LC. I haven't had time to read completely through your blog, but love the fall pic on the right hand side!
Just wanted to let you know that the birthday music box reminded me of a similar little music box I bought at a yard sale YEARS ago for my son, Michael. It plays "My name is Michael, I've got a nickle, etc." He used to play it over and over again. I still have it and he is 26. His two children play with it when they come to visit, which is not often enough. Thanks for the sweet memory and Happy belated birthday to your son.
