birthday wishes

my firstborn is eleven this week.






eleven.

who knew eleven would look this sweet, this zany, this clever?

who knew he'd crave books like air and not have grown too hip for the old mum and dad?

who knew eleven years could hold so much wonder, this day after day after day after day of easy togetherness and unscheduled joy?

happy birthday, bee. i can't imagine this life without you.

O my, that pic makes him look so much older. I was just looking at some pictures this week of him when he was little. He was so-o-o beautiful (sorry bee). My first grandbaby --- eleven. Wow! And such a young looking grandma.

By the way bee-- I think your are amazing!!! My eyes have tears in them when I think how much I love you. Hope your birthday was great.
