13 years ago to this day (as of 5:37AM this day) I held a 9lbs baby boy in my arms. I stared in awe at fingernails I didn't know would need to be cut the same day he was born, his giant feet lmao, those blue eyes that took my breath away, and the chubby little cheeks that would make a chipmunk jealous. I held that little 9 pounder and thought "OMG how in the hell did I manage to WALK again after passing something that size!?" (In this hospital, as soon as your stitches are in they make you get up and walk. Not far, just from the labor room to your recovery room. But still, no lying around getting stiff. You walk to your room and take a shower as hot as you can stand it before you settle in for rest.)




And yea, I know I look like WonderNerd with those glasses but cut me some slack, it was '98!



But NOW, I'm the mother of a TEENAGER!! A FREAKING TEENAGER!!!!!! How did this happen? When did my little sugar-puck turn into a 5'10" 170lbs lug with such a grown up personality and very sharp wit? I'm not old enough to be the mother of a teenager. I never wanted my baby to grow up. 2 more years until a learner's permit, 1 more year after that until a driver's license. 5 more years until he's an adult. FIVE, that's all I've got left before my "little guy" is a grown man who will vote (or else!) and make ALL of his own decisions.
How did all these years slip by so fast?
These pictures were taken late evening on 4-13. 1 day early shouldn't matter too much in the scheme of things as far as pictures go.

I just still can't believe it. He's a teenager. My little guy. Still fits on my lap though. There's always room on Mommy's lap. If he reaches his father's stature of 6'4", there will STILL be room on Mommy's lap. lol
