17

So my eldest son Thomas turns 17 today.

I don't know why but 15 and 16 were pretty much steady as she goes birthdays for him, but this 17 seems to be a big deal for me, if not for him.

Wow, he's been "with the family" for seventeen years now. That's a good chunk of time.

I found this video clip of his birthday four years ago, when he turned 13.

He still has the childlike nature, and the smile, but he's like, a man now.




Happy Birthday Thomas

  3. That's OK Micah. I can't remember when my boys hugged each other last either. And they still fight and get disgusted with each other. But you can't get away from the fact that you are brothers and will always sort of watch out for each other.

    And buy each other presents!

    Happy Birthday, Thomas!
