The Big One-Oh...

It's hard to believe it...
but someone is this many old today:

The Big One-Oh!


That's right. This guy:

Schecky @ 10


Hard to remember that there was a time when you were so hairless that you didn't even have eyelashes or eyebrows...

Ten Years Ago...


Oh... you've come a long way, baby.
Wait, am I still allowed to call you that now that you've hit double digits???

I love you, kiddo - and after 10 years it never ceases to amaze me that I manage to love you a little bit more every day. You're so smart, and so damn funny that it just knocks me out. You're thoughtful and contemplative and just nice to have around. You are, by far, the best thing that I've ever done in my life, and it is joy and a privilege to be your mom.

I've said it a million times before, and I'm sure this won't be the last: you, sir, are a really good egg.

And I love you.

Happy Birthday.
Happy Birthday, baby....

Awesome! I wish him a happy birthday! I still have his "Evil Hamsters" poem on my desk at work. It makes me smile whenever I look at it!

Doesn't it seem crazy that he's hitting double digits? The time just flies.

Happy Birthday Schecky!!! You must've been born under a lucky star -- today is BigDaddy's 77th birthday and he's a great guy just like you!

Holy Cow that just is not possible. It truly seems like he had a birthday just about 5-6 months ago and I'm not even related! Tell Schecky to slow down.

Happy Birthday, Schecky! You're officially not a little kid anymore (as I used to tell my 7 yr-old sister when I was 10). Hope it's a good one!

Misty said...

ok. so sadly, NONE of the pictures showed up for me. Not sure why. I feel like I'm missing something wonderful.
At any cost--- Happy birthday to your boy! :)
