The Boy Child Turns 25


 

The-Boy-Child-Turns-25

My son turns 25 today. I feel far too much love and pride to express in one blog post.

Happy birthday honey. Much love, Mom.

    Thanks! He weighed 20lbs by 6 months. Chubby babies apparently = slender adults!

    Oh thank you! He’s a real mix of both parents, I can’t take all the credit:).

  • Happy Birthday to your handsome son! Wishing you and him much happiness in the coming year. My daughter turned 34 today – it’s her birthday, too! It’s hard to express all our love.

    @Jane, Happy birthday to your daughter too! I’m sure you’ve expressed it so often over the years:).

  • Such a fine fellow.

    My oldest turned 30 this year and I’m like, “how did that happen?”

    @RoseAG, ;). Here’s to fine fellows across the country!

  • My goodness, he’s a good-looking young man whose face seems to have somehow been shaped by kindness, if I’m not over-reading. The good looks seem marked by kindness and intelligence and even the beginnings of wisdom (’cause he’s only 25). Happy Birthday to your son, and Happy Birth-day to his momma.

    @Frances/Materfamilias, That’s a lovely thing to say. He is extraordinarily kind. And intelligence. Probably even shows the beginnings of wisdom:).

  • Oh, those blue eyes! Happy Birthday, Mrs. Lisa’s son!

    @Susan, Oh, I hope so too! Thank you!

  • Happiest of birthdays to you both. He’s gorgeous and looks intelligent, kind, and very wise for a 25 year old.

    And he is, of course, well dressed.
    Best wishes!

    Thank you:). He does have a dang good sense of style!

  • Happy birthday to your son, and congratulations to you! He looks like you, in the current photo in a suit and in the one up a little to the right. He looks calm, kind, and intelligent – and he’s so handsome!

    Oh thank you:). He looks like me in his little velvet overall? I love that photo.Or the Princeton one?

    @Marie, I see you in his face in two photos, the one in the velvet overall, when he was still blonde, and in the one at the center bottom, in the suit and blue tie.

    @Marie, Thank you. Isn’t it wonderful to see oneself in one’s children, whether physically, if they are biological children, or in how they have incorporated/challenged your beliefs over time?

  • Happy Birthday to your son. I hope you celebrate well and that the coming year is full of goodness for him.

    @Town and Country House, Thank you! He’s celebrating in Brooklyn but last night my family and I sang him Happy Birthday over FaceTime:).

  • Happy, Happy Birthday, handsome Son, and Happy, Happy Birth Day to You, Lisa!! I wish you both a wonderful celebration! xo

    @Lorri, Thank you:).

  • I have a 7 month old (my first) and since she’s been born I just start *bawling* at posts like this one. Not logical. But time never slows down again, does it? It’s never gone faster. Happy birthday to your son, Lisa!

    @Sarah, Time doesn’t slow down, but it doesn’t disappear, either. I find I live in layers now, with then and today coexisting just a little itty bit.

  • Didn’t you just squeeze him to bits? And still do, when you can?

    @Duchesse, My vice is munching on babies. He was so NOMmable. Nowaways he’s too tall and slender for much squeezing. I find a good gchat session makes a good substitute:).

  • happy birthday- gorgeous snaps! x
