Today was Steven's 27th birthday and as I looked at my three children together, celebrating not only his birthday, but Laura's last week and Frank's next week, I realized again how incredibly fortunate and blessed I am to be mom to these really lovely people.
I have loved being their mom every single day - even those days that I just wanted to fly away for a few hours.... :)
Steven, your birth was the most incredible thing that had ever happened to me. I looked at your little face and absolutely fell in love. You looked a bit like a combination of ET and my dad, were so sweet and perfect and soon you got your own look and left ET far behind. You quickly and easily grew into a happy little boy, through the relatively easy teen years and into the wonderful man you now are. There has not been a day that I have not been proud of you, not a day that I have not felt incredibly fortunate to have the privilege of having you as my son.
Happy birthday, Steven, I love you.
