Happy Birthday, David!!!
Oh, my goodness it's almost Christmas, and look what Santa brought me ... my youngest child, so let's all shout out with love:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAVID!!!
That day was so special in that I spent Christmas in the hospital, with my newborn, and fast forward to today, his birthday ... I can't quite call him "Young David" anymore, but I do want him to know that he is so loved and appreciated.
Let's walk down memory lane together and take a look at his transformation: I believe he has changed the most out of all of my children, from infancy to adulthood, and I am so proud to also be able to display some of his personal artwork.
Blast from the Past
I think I'll start with some of my favorite baby pics of David, at a few months old, and another a bit further down the line ... and yes, I did knit that lovely blue sweater. His comment, at 5 years old?
"Next time, Mom, can you make it not so itchy?"
Ahh, the joys of acrylic yarn, eh?
Freddy: It's a good thing you got a new iPhone for Christmas.
Sandi: I know, the images are quite fuzzy but what can I say? They're still great.
This one I call
"Determination on Moving Day"
And moving on, here he is in his teenage "can't I explore my own hair?" phase ...
... a nice image just for fun
lovin' that smile ...
Artwork from the Present
David is an artist at heart, and I wanted to share some of his most recent drawings:
David's self-portrait 1
David's self-portrait 2
One of my favorites ... He calls this:
"Me and my Younger Self"
I was planning on editing out the cigarette, but then I thought to be true to who he is ... and since he drew it, it stays ... kids ...
Did I mention he loves everything Japanese and Anime?
Highly talented, that kid ...
Have a fantabulous day, my son.
I love you and want the best for you, always.
Be blessed today, and every day.
As is my way, I want to post this birthday wish on the date of his birth, on 12/24, at, of course, 12:24, and that's exactly what I'll do.
Holding true to my tradition, here's David's haiku poem written just for him:
Trust in yourself, son
Listen to your heart and soar
Fly high, know your worth
With Much Love,
