In December of 1973 I brought home a baby boy, from the hospital with coal black hair.
In February of 1978, I brought home a baby boy, from the hospital with blond hair with red highlights.
Son, number two, easy going, good napper, as you can see from the photos. Easily entertained with his Matchbox cars and Baseball cards. He was enthusiastic about pre-school, school, college and life in general.
Like son number one he has grown up to be a charming, delightful, happy, well adjusted human being.
He grumbles that his February 16th birthday is often forgotten after the rush of the Christmas holidays and the three other birthday's that during that week. He's not forgotten, trust me.
He's married to Caitlin and they are expecting their first child, a little boy, in late May.
So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU soon to be Daddy. Both Papa and I are very proud of you.

  2. I've been getting together old photos of the kids, all now grown of course. I fixing a new photo wall in my hall. Boy did it bring back memories. Love the photos of your son. They grow up fast don't they!!!

  3. I try to remember what I was doing and what I was like when I turned 32. It seems like many lifetimes ago. :)Bea

  4. Happy Birthday to both you and Patrick! Well, it's like a birthday for you too, right?! LOL! Great photo collage too.

  5. Oh Happy Birthday James Patrick, now 32? It's my son Ben's birthday today, the 18th, and he is 26. It makes me very old I think. How exciting that he is to be a Daddy soon. Wonderful.
