On this wonderful day 22 years ago I gave birth to my sweet son, Ryan. Weighing in at 9 lbs 15 oz. (I begged the doctor to give him the extra ounce, since I had been through hell and back to give birth to this child. Endless hours of labor only to end up with a C-section.)
Ryan has grown to be such a wonferful human being and such an old soul that I feel I've known all my life. He was my first child. The moment I looked into his eyes I knew he had many things to teach me. He's taught me about being passionte about life. I marveled at seeing the world through his eyes. Children seem to do that to you. He is such an amazing soul. I cherish every moment I get to spend with him. He is truly special! I LOVE you Ryan, my son, my friend.
P.S. - Sorry about the mullet...I had so much parental pressure to get you a haircut. I couldn't bear to cut off those sweet curls in the back though. :)
