Happy Birthday, Mama's Boy!

Here you were, minutes after birth.

Look at that head of hair!

Hey!  Even MyHero had hair back then!

You had chubby little cheeks

and loved your rocking horse.

You loved the swimming pool

when we lived in Florida.

You were a funny little guy-


and you were SO sad when we told you

that you were too big for

a sink bath.

One day we turned around

and you were five.

Five?

Five!

At six you loved playing ball.

And although you played soccer

for ELEVEN years.

(yes I was a soccer Mom

I never missed a match)

I could not find a single

picture of you in one of

your soccer uniforms.

You were a rabbit

BY CHOICE

for so many years that I lost track

of how many bunny costumes I made.

The years flew by.

You grew up into a fine young man.


We were over the moon

when you married

the girl we all love.

And..as your sisters had

children you became a

wonderful Uncle..

because you still have a lot of

'KID' in you.

But the biggest blessing 

in your life

(besides marrying your sweet wife)

is that you have a precious

little son of your own.








And HE loves his Nana!

Yes!He!Does!
You do special things like
hang up lights on the house
to delight your little boy!
It lights up the whole neighborhood---
I think there might be a law against that..
And you tenderly wash the boyo's hair..
Things like that make you an
amazing dad.
You are a good son, too,
and a great husband.

Not sure how you got to be
SO OLD cuz that makes ME
REALLY OLD...lol

Anyway-
Happy Birthday, Ryan!
Love you to the moon and back!

ps.  the check is in the mail....

  31. Happy Birthday to your wonderful son, Diana! He sounds like a genuine guy, and such a loving father and husband and son. I wonder why he dressed up as a rabbit for so many years, how funny? You were a soccer mom! Jess played soccer for many years, so we were out on the field cheering her on.

    This is special post for your special son. Love that third picture, such a typical boy. : ) Sons make us moms very happy, don't they?

    love, ~Sheri
