    Boy!! I just can't believe how time goes by so fast. 41 years ago today April 25th at 2:46 pm I was in the hospital and I had delivered a 7lbs 6oz. 21" baby boy!.. The begining of a new life.
    I sit and remember how he learned to crawl, but what was really funny was when he would do this thing of butt up and then the legs would straightend almost up to a stand and then like walk with his hands still on the floor and butt up like that. It was something to laugh about. Then school days first one all dressed up for school didn't seem to bother him to go he didn't cry. We as mothers cherish those days and this is why I always say to new parents when I see them with their new babies or their children . ENJOY them everyday as they Grow Up So Fast and then you realize how fast time goes by..... I'm so proud of my Son and I Love him dearly ..

    Cheryl, the time sure does fly. I have 3 boys and when they were little I was so busy that I didn't notice anything like "time" lol.
    One day I woke up and they were grown-ups!!!!!
    I miss those days but also love having adult relationships with them.
    My firstborn was the same weight as yours!! But he was 20 inches.
    Happy Son's Birthday, Mom!! :D:D

    My youngest drove home from KY to surprise me for Easter. We had a wonderful time, he left last night to drive back. I coildn't sleep worrying about him on the road. He is 38 years old,disabled vet with "brain siezures" very different from body seizures. When they happen he is "gone" 30/45 seconds an unless you know him you wouldn' t recognize the seizure. Scary but the VA is trying everything to help him.

    Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry. I'm scared for him driving. Hope he got home OK. It was so sweet that he wanted to surprise you for the holiday. Our children are just so precious, no matter how old they are, and we never stop worrying even when they are well.

    Hugs to both of you and prayers that the VA can help him.

    My son will be 33 in June. My sister is 13 years older than I, so I had a lot of time to hear my mother tell my sister how she should write down all the cute stuff my niece did or she would forget those things. My sister never took my mother's advice, but I did, at least to some extent. It's so neat to look over what I wrote and remember those wonderful times. And I can't believe that I am a grandmother already!

    I raised 3 children the oldest will be 41 this year. I like you remember the first time I held them, when they went to school, but I have stretches of time that only pictures tell of their life. We were all so busy surviving, that some of their childhood slipped away. We all need to slow down and make sure that our memories are more than just pictures in an album.

    My oldest son would have been 39 in Feb. (died in 1990). My oldest living is 37 and my youngest will be 29 in June, we share the same birthday. My grandson that I am raising just turned 6. He gives me a chance to enjoy the things I was too busy and missed with the others.

    My grandaughter is doing that now. She is so funny. :) She wants to walk, but afraid to try and stand up without something to hold on to. Time flies by entirely too fast. Enjoy each day :)

    It does go way to fast but we have many great memories, thank God. Now I'm watching my grandchildren do the same thing. But it's amazing, cuz I'm not aging. lol

    I agree, My daughter is 40, and my son 36,now all the memories of their growing up intermingles with the grand kids. You are so busy with them you don't realize until they are grown, wow, how did I do all that had to be done for those little gems and everything else that had to be tended to!
