Eighteen Years Ago Today...

....our first little boy came into our lives....fresh from heaven!
He was a whole week late but well worth the wait!
We got to bring him home on July 4th...a very fun
celebration on that holiday!

  2. Funny how clear the day our babies were born can be 18 years later.

    Happy Birthday Taylor!

  3. Hi! Betsy,
    What very beautiful photographs
    of you and your baby. (Your baby 18 years ago, but I'am quite sure that he still and will always be your...)to share with your readers.
    Happy Birthday! to your son Taylor, and may you and your family have a safe and pleasant Fourth of July weekend. (As we celebrate Taylor's fireworks!)
    By the way, I know what rabbit left
    the fur?... Nugget?!?

    Take care as always!
    DeeDee ;-D

  4. Dee-dee...We have always said the fireworks were to celebrate Taylor's birthday! LOL

    Yes, Nugget is the culprit! He is shedding something awful!

  6. Happy Birthday Taylor.

    The picture of you bringing him home is so great and you still pretty much look the same. Taylor has changed though. It is hard to believe sometimes how times flies. In a few weeks my youngest will be 32, but then a few weeks after that I will be 18 again. Just kidding, but my mom says she 39 and holding. We give up. Birthdays are special days and since you get fireworks on Taylors to celebrate than he really gets a celebration.

    Thank you for sharing. And have fun with the cake tonight.

    God bless.

  8. Clear memory huh of the day one's child is born after so many years -try 42 years and yes, that day is still clear as a bell in my mind. My first was a week late in arriving too and darned if she isn't still late for EVERYTHING still! Pushes that envelope to the max, she does!
    The other two though -right on time arriving and usually fairly punctual now as well.
    Loved the post and pictures here.

  11. Jill ~ his girlfriend sneaked over this morning before he was awake and decorated his car. She asked me last night if I could put his garage door up for her. So he arrived this morning in a cloud of streamers and ribbons. I'm sure the kids loved it! :)

  23. And your baby's all grown up and handsome, and you look just the same, just as lovely, apart from your hairstyle. Don't know how you do it, but you do!

  24. Happy belated, Taylor! The only thing that has changed is your hair, Betsy. And perhaps that "mothering is going to always be this easy" look! :)
