Today is our son’s birthday. Thirty-seven years ago, hubby and I were blessed with the cutest baby boy. Here he is, just a few days old.
Much water has passed under the bridge since then, and he now he is married, with three lovely children of his own, one of which is a son who looks just like him.
These photos of little Max remind me of when his dad was also a puddle-jumper. 🙂
How quickly they grow, and our love grows right along with them. Happy Birthday, Jeff.
Lovely post. Happy memories always make me smile 🙂
Thanks, Tilly. Me too. 🙂
Those are great pictures of your sweet boy, Sylvia!! And you look like such a happy mom. Here’s sending birthday wishes to Jeff!!
Thanks so much, Cathy. Yes, he has always made me very happy. 🙂
Good grief look at all these comments!
I love the photo of you and your baby. My oldest will be 35 this year but we’re still waiting to be grandparents.
Thanks, Rosie. Jeff is my youngest. His sister is nine years older, and has two teenagers.
You have two teenage grandchildren? Wow.
Yes, fourteen and seventeen. I’ll be visiting them at the end of the month. 🙂
You can be proud of your boys, son and grandson…of course the other grandchildren too. It is lovely to see your child grow into an adult and have his own family. Your love never ends!
Thanks so much, Ute. Yes, family love is so special. 🙂
I wish him all the best (mom and dad, too).
Thank you so much. I really appreciate your lovely comment. 🙂
Thank you 🙂
I am not accustomed to comment a lot and try to do my best 🙂
There is a little problem with the language because I have difficulty to write in English 😉 Sometimes I laugh at myself how I have written 🙂 🙂 🙂
Your English is very good. I’m so impressed. 🙂
Thanks, Phil. 🙂
Adorable. What a cutie, then and now! All of them! People are so darn cute, aren’t they. The longer I live the more I’m not sure that there really are ANY ugly ones. Thanks for sharing yours. 🙂 Marsha 🙂
Thanks, Marsha. Yes, Jeff and Max are such cutie-pies. I love them to bits. 🙂
As well you should. And you look pretty cute in that picture, too! Great memories.
Thanks, Marsha. 🙂
Cheers on this day to celebrate! ,,, and the cheers for a good family.

What a nice smile he has your son … and very sparkling eyes. His son is so cute too .. you have two fantastic gifts there. It’s okay to be in puddles when dressed for it. Lovely little post.
Thanks so much, Viveka. They are both so precious to me. 🙂
You missed your honourable mention on my colours post.
Happy Birthday wishes to Jeff! Really precious photos 🙂

Great photos, happy bday to your son,
All three of you are just way too precious for words. Happy Birthday to Jeff…. hope you had a joyful visit (on Skype?) These must be the days when it’s the hardest to be so scattered across the globe.
Thanks, Gunta. Yes, we did have a great chat today, and Max and Sienna joined in the conversation. Little Taylor was still sleeping. Thank goodness for Skype. 😀
Love that picture of your son and grandson.. stunning!! Hope you having a great day!!

Wising him the happiest of birthdays,my friend 🙂
Beautiful photos….happy Bday to all. My son will turn 26 next month. Yes, where did the time go?
Thanks so much, Ingrid. Yes, time flies by far too fast for my liking. I wish someone would invent a way to slow it down a bit. 😕
Reblogged this on lost creek publishing.
Thanks for the reblog. 🙂
Congratulations…so much to be proud of!!! I’m sure you enjoy their company when ever possible!

Greetings to you, Adrian. Thanks for the visit.
you’ur welcome.. ^_^
Aww! You look lovely as a young mum, Ad. I’ve got pretty much the same picture of me with James at that age. We lived in jeans, didn’t we?
Great looking happy family.
Thanks, Jo. I still do live in jeans; well denim shorts at the moment. 🙂
I didn’t like to admit it. 🙂
Beautiful! I LOVE the picture of you and your son. How beautiful!:) My son is also named Max! 🙂
Thanks, Nicole. Max is a good name. 🙂
Yes it is!
What magnificent photos… Happy Birthday to your son and may he have so many more… love the Father son photo as well… but the top photo..??.. a few days old… you don’t even look as though you’ve had a baby… bounced right back I see…
Thanks so much. 🙂 I think this was the day I came home from the hospital. Hubby brought my jeans and a top, and I fitted right in. The weight was now in my arms instead of in my tum. 🙂
Another birthday wish to him!
He certainly has changed a bit …
Actually that mother-and-son pic is particularly lovely – utter adoration, and complete trust.
Thanks, Col. Yes, he has grown quite a lot, but he’s still my baby boy. 🙂
You do avoid commenting to that effect when he’s with a bunch of buddies, I hope? 🙂
I know just what I can and can’t get away with. 🙂
Lots of practice! 🙂
Yes, trial and error mostly. 😆
It must be wonderful to see him all grown up with a lovely family of his own
Yes it is. I’m happy that he’s happy. 🙂
aww.. so sweeet! happy birthday to your very handsome son.. and his baby looks a lot like him..
Thanks so much, Elizz. 🙂
