A FIRST BIRTHDAY

I have 11 grandchildren. Today is the youngest one's (a darling, adorable little boy) first birthday. He is truly a miracle child and has us properly wrapped around his finger just as the 10 did that came before him. I've written of him before......the little guy with eyes so like his mother's. Happy Birthday Little Man!

I was lucky enough to be able to spend a good portion of the day with him and his mother, my daughter ~ my friend! We didn't do anything grand. We went shopping and ran some errands. But it doesn't matter what we did.......I was with two very important people in my life and enjoying every minute of it.

Tomorrow we will celebrate his first birthday with a party at his home. It will be a great gathering of relatives from both sides, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. He is much too young to be able to file this away in his memory so we will have to take lots of pictures for him to look at when he is older. Jeeeez! I have to remember to buy those camera batteries -----

Happy Birthday to your little grandson! How well I remember those days of "first birthdays". Children grow up so quickly... My babies are 13 and 16 now, but I love how they're turning out!

Have a wonderful time tomorrow and give him a hug for me!

First birthdays are much more fun for the family than the actual birthday boy. The important thing is he will feel all the love that comes from each and every one of you.

Don't forget the batteries...pictures are the very best!!! Have a wonderful day with your Grandson.

I appreciate your honesty and your love for the family. I know I say this every time I come here. But simple things like the influence of a grandparent can make or break one. And you seem to be contributing so well.

The tradition for the first birthday for babies in my family is to put the baby in his highchair and let him have his very own piece of cake, which of course he winds up wearing most of.

But the pictures are great! :-)
