"Sing a song of Birthdays
Full of fun and cheer
And may you keep on having them
For many a happy year." - Anonymous

Guess who's 14?

I can both believe it and am completely shocked. You know how that goes...My baby boy is practically grown up. He'll be starting high school in the fall (high school!!!), his feet are as big as his dad's, he's so close to being as tall as me, he is independent, his voice is changing...YET he still wants me to cut the crusts of his toast, cuddles on the couch, requests a warm towel from the dryer...He is still and will always be my baby!

Archer was born a few weeks after Alex's 8th birthday. This year Alex turned 22. They have always had a wonderful relationship. Alex is such a good uncle. When Archer was born Alex was a little unsure about what to do with a baby...however he soon learned that babies aren't breakable and given the right amount of love and attention they grow to adore you.

and NOW! Oh how they've grown!
Loving it!

Happy Birthday Archer!


  1. Happy Birthday Archer! Hope your day is great!

    (and seriously Jerrie, figure out how to make them stop growing so I can get some for my kids - thanks)

  2. Happy Birthday Archer! Did you know you share a birthday with the Dalai Lama?

  3. Wow. He's a wonderful young man, but of course... his parents are fabulous too. It's shocking that he'll be in High School though. Yikes!! Good Lord, he'll be driving soon. DRIVING!

    Happy Birthday, Archer!!

  4. Hope you had a great birthday, Archer!
