animated lone

(no subject)

I have not been on LJ too much lately. I have been working and that’s about it. But I had to pause and reflect on my oldest son’s turning 16. That just seems amazing. I still remember his sweet, big eyes looking at me on the day he was born. Such a little guy. Now he is 5-11 with a voice deeper than his dad’s and his own opinions about things. He has finally emerging from the doldrums of early adolescence and is friendlier. His heart condition has faded to a regular checkup and a bad memory. He is learning to drive. He has successfully completed all but one merit badge requirement on his way to being an Eagle Scout.

I am very proud of him. I am wistful yet happy for him. Happy Birthday, W.
