I can say that because he is my only son. So for those of you who freaked from that title, relax. But it is my son’s birthday. And I promised him I wouldn’t get all weepy and stuff. But I can’t help it. Because time has flown by. If you are a parent, you know exactly what I mean. The days are long but the years are short.
On this day, 9 years ago, Reid was born at 5 lbs. and 14 oz. And when we brought him home, my husband and I just cried. Mostly out of fear, but also because we never could have imagined loving someone so much. And nothing has changed. We still love him as much as we did that day, if not more. Reid has grown into a smart, determined, kind, loving, thoughtful and driven young man. I am so proud to call him my son.
Reid, I can’t wait to see what you do next. Once you set your mind to something, I know you can achieve it. Dad and I are so proud of you and your sister loves you more than you know. Happy Birthday, buddy!
