Today, he's 9. Tomorrow, he's getting a job.

Today, my baby is 9.  ::insert sad face here::

              

Everybody always tells me how adorable he was as a baby (and now, too), how sweet and kind he is.... my little gentleman.

Adrian....was the baby I waited for.  The baby I kept telling Jesse I needed to have.  I was right.  He's the one always by my side (whether I like it or not!), always ready with a hug, always offering for me to hold his hand "because you walk slower than everybody else, Mom...and I don't want you to have to walk by yourself".

Does he have to grow up?  HE'S ready.  I'm sure not.

I love you, papito chulito (with a side of beans)!!  HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

  10. He's still a pup, Amy.  You've got him for several more years...and you could always get knocked up again, right?  Sure you could!  Just sayin'....

  11. awww...he's a sweetheart.  There is something about the youngest isn't there?  I loved all my children equally, but the youngest one was always special.

  12. Oh!  You just don't want this age to be passed by.  You just want to hold them here in the moment for always.  Such a good age and such a handsome laddie too.
    His warm and loving nature just shines out of his little face.

                                   HAPPY BIRTHDAY ADRIAN!

    And may he always want to wrap himself around you and comfort you.
    Big!  Big! (((((Hug)))) to Adrian and you.

  16. Happy Birthday, Adrian!!!!  Almost there.  Double digets right around the corner.  Amy, you think you've got it bad.  I look at it like this.  When Collin's 2 I'll be <gasp!> 30!  Some woman told me the other day I need to work on getting a man because my "fertile years" are in decline.  I asked her,"Should I have thrown myself on the stairs on my 27th birthday or should I just do it now?"  Still, remind yourself.  We're not getting older, the kids are.  Noisy little alarm clocks!  -Dawn-

  17. HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY ADRIAN!
    What a great entry...But you know what? Although he seems sooo big now, when you look back at video or pictures in a couple of years, you will see that he is still a little boy..He's going to be a good man if he is already concerned with his Mom walking alone..Good job-to you!.....
    Love his smile....
