  3. Don't you hate it when they outgrow you?  I have that with both my sister and brother.  Lol.  I know it's worse with sons because it makes you feel old!  Still, tonight I looked at my brother and thought,Dude, I can remember when I could pick you up and mom would scold me for it."  Now he rests his elbow on my head and says,"Hey, how's the weather down there?"  Smart aleck.  Happy birthday,Alex!  Have a piece of cake for me!  -Dawn-

  9. Isn't it lovely to feel his protective arm around you now?   How wonderful is that?    My son grew to become 6' 2" and I am only 5' 1"  Can you imagine!  My head rests on his midriff.  Lol!  We laugh a lot at that....Lol!
    Happy Birthday to your darling Alex.  He is a handsome lad.  Takes after his Mum.
    I hope he has a memorable day. 16 !!!  All the time in the world lies ahead for him.....wonderful!
