Happy Birthday Joe! (formerly Joey!)

Then and now:

He was such a cute newborn, jaundice and all! Now he is my man-child! Fifteen years old today. Time flies!

I also celebrate this day as the day as the anniversary of the day that I became a Mom! Best thing that ever happened to me, hands down!



Love this boy!

Here is a quote for you today:

No man can possibly know what life means, what the world means, until he has a child and loves it. Then the whole universe changes and nothing will ever again seem exactly as it seemed before.
-unknown (but very much appreciated)

What adorable photos! How is it possible that Joe has aged 15 years yet you look exactly the same? ;)
