Happy Birthday, Frankie!!!
Let's start with a heartfelt and bursting with joy
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FRANKIE!!!
This is my second child, firstborn son, and today is his birthday and the first day of a new job, in this new decade. Wow, a lot of firsts here, but I couldn't be prouder.
I asked my children if I could start a new tradition, and feature them on my blog, just to keep a momma happy, as I always want to acknowledge them, and I love baby pictures. They all agreed, and his is the first birthday of the year, so here's a photo montage of my favorite images, and they each capture what I love about him.
It's (almost) all about Frankie. I did add a few shots with him and his siblings, and a few other kind folks, me included :), as these are images that make me smile and remind me of the joys of motherhood.
Blast from the Past
I think I'll start with something he probably doesn't remember: a Christmas card from his kindergarten teacher, Ms. Igarashi. Even at that young age, he was happy, smiling and oh, so loved.
Next, are a collection of images that begin at 11 months ... I'm not sure what I'll do next year as I have almost all my favs here, but I know I can find many more.
Frankie, This Is Your Life:
Now & Then
We've come to the most present: Frankie and big sis ...
... and Frankie and Zoey:
Have a fantabulous day, son.
I love you. Go forth and
be blessed today,
and every day.
As is my way, I want to post this birthday wish on the date of his birth, on 01/07, at 1:07, and that's exactly what I'll do.
In honor of this great man, who I love dearly, here's a haiku poem written just for Frankie:
Tall, strong and wise, son
Your star boundlessly shines bright
It's with you always
With Much Love,
