Just the beginning...

He was born on his Grandfather and uncles birthday...
and it was the first day of spring
17 years ago.
the stars smiled down for sure

He arrived with a twinkle in his eye...and a beautiful smile on his face
we see it every day...
we are lucky.

He is an artist although won't admit it
an athlete
who has been likened to watching choreographed ballet when he moves his body
through space to catch a ball.



He is an old soul,
so aware...so complex
so amazing

He has a natural charm and charisma...
a sense of humor sometimes dry,
often just nutty.

Our third son
a true joy.

Oh yes...sometimes dramatic...intense







but so full of life...and love.

My heart swells.

Happy, happy day to you, Cameron!


we love you so.

Deborah said...

Beautiful, beautiful boy ... sons are such a joy. Don't the photos of them at 9 or 10 just bring on an overwhelming melancholy, remembering the year when you were the Wise One and every statement uttered by the beloved son was punctuated with, "Right Mama?!?" Happy happy birthday Cameron ... you've only just begun. **blows kisses** Deborah

Happy Birthday to Cameron!

I didn't realize you had a son the same age as mine. It really tears at my heart to look at those pictures of when he was a little boy. Doesn't it just seem like yesterday?
