16 and oh so sweet . . .

This boy of mine,
born at 1:37 am 16 years ago today, 9 lbs. 3 oz.
Despite the "wow, would you look at those broad shoulders"
his birth was relatively painless.

Born with a trusting and loving disposition,
with utmost compassion,
unwavering loyalty,
and unremitting forgiveness;

his attributes are far greater than he gives himself credit for,

and those fortunate to call him friend are the richer for it.

I could not ask for a better son,
and couldn't be any prouder of the young man he has become.


  1. Happy Birthday to your handsome son! He sounds like an amazing young man. I love how you have posted the pictures of him when he was little along with the ones of him now. Very nice!

  2. 16 is a big milestone! What wonderful attributes to see in your child---he sounds like an amazing young man. I love the "before and after" shots you've posted. Happy Birthday to The Boy!

  3. Happy 16th birthday to your very handsome son, Nicki, sounds like you have every reason to be proud of him. Love the younger photos too.

  4. What a beautiful tribute to your handsome son! Happy 16th to him!

  5. He is so very gorgeously handsome. WOW, If the girls aren't flocking around your door yet, they soon will be!!! And, by the other photos, he has always had those gorgeous looks!!! No wonder you are proud of him.....he does sound amazing!

  6. How did I miss this one? What a great post! Love these photos! Have you also told him that he's movie star handsome? He's so good looking! He sounds a little bit like my David - typical 2nd born - easy going, great friend, kind, peace maker . . . A nice counterpoint to our wonderful, but high-energy first borns . . .
