On this day 15 years ago my first baby was born. He's now 6 feet tall and in a size 11 1/2 shoe...
I worked the day before and was set to have a baby shower that next day with coworkers from my station. I had no idea at that time how much that day he showed up three weeks early would change my life.
He doesn't want pictures posted so I'll respect that, but I sit here watching him out there thinking of all the phases we've walked through in this decade and a half. How as a toddler I wondered if he'd ever join the group and get out of my lap, how he'd build creations all over the house and cover himself in mud and negotiate for whatever it was he wanted like the most skilled attorney I've ever seen. How he spent hours at the baseball field, hours perfecting skate tricks and now hours at the beach. How he has this witty sly sense of humor and can make connections beyond his years. He holds a special place in my heart. I love him fiercely and pray the warrior spirit and determination I see in him he uses for good as he grows into a man. #fifteen
