First of all how can it be possible that you are 22 years old? The years are going by way too fast. I’ve always been so proud of you and it’s so hard to believe you aren’t my little boy anymore. I know sometimes I have to remind myself you are an adult but I’m so glad you still need me! I’m so happy you finally have your own place and you have someone to share it with (I really don’t worry so much anymore – really). I’m so glad I can spend your birthday with you this year since we are making the 17th your birthday. Always keep smiling that beautiful smile.
I came across this picture the other day, it was so funny picking you up from preschool that day all dressed up – you didn’t have a clue who I was.
