Today is my son Austin’s 7th Birthday and I just don’t know where the time has gone. It’s truly a day to celebrate for me- and a reminder of how fortunate I am that he fought his way to survive in this world despite his rough beginning being born too soon. I am so lucky to have this little guy in my life and I am so proud of him – how well he is doing in school, his enthusiasm for life and that he cares about others and the world around him.
He is quite the character and I thought this shot I caught of him mid-air jumping into the pool last weekend was a perfect representation of my crazy little man. He loves to have fun and fills my life with love, joy and laughter. He also gives me quite a few gray hairs and has caused my heart to jump more than once- but it’s all worth it and I am so happy & blessed to have him as my son.
He is in his last week of school, and I am going to join him for lunch this afternoon. I figure I don’t have too much longer before it won’t be cool to have his mom show up at school to share a sandwich. 😉 So I’ll take the hugs and kisses now while I can get them! 🙂
