Happy Birthday, Will!!!

Whoa, you're 27 on the 27th!!

As you blog readers will see, these pictures are in no particular order... but they revolve around one wonderful fella...


Here is Will with his Granddaddy Andy.

























Here he is with his Nana.

I was kind of proud of having a long-haired son, frankly.






Sam was Cub Master for Will's pack.




Here is Will with his sister and their Daddy Bob...



This teddy bear was (is) Will's favorite stuffed animal in the whole universe.  Nana and Daddy Bob gave it to him on his first Christmas, when he was 4 months old.


This next picture is with Great-Grandmother Jennie (my dad's mother)...






Here he is with his Aunt Peggy.


Here is Will with GENUINE IMITATION, formerly known as NARROW PATH...

They played several places, most notably at THE DOOR in Fort Worth...
















I love you so much, Will... and thank God that He let you come be my son.
Mmm.

Happy birthday, Will! What sweet pictures!!! I love the one of you tickling his belly! So sweet. And the picture of him with his bear looks so much like Cap!

Liked the all. Loved the ones with Uncle Andy and Grandma Jenny

So, you put up WAY more pictures of Will than you did of me on my birthday. I think. Just sayin.

But I'm glad it's his birthday!

Happy Birthday to Will!

What sweet photo's. He was such a cute baby and is now such a handsome man - married and about to be a college graduate in a few months. I'm so proud of you Will.

LOL, Laura!

Ha, Laura. I was hoping you wouldn't notice!!

(Your dad noticed, too. He said, 'Well, the firstborn always gets more pictures taken.')

(Thank you for your forgiveness, Laura...)

Love the pictures! And, I loved your daughter's comment about him getting more blog "coverage" than she did. My daughter is my baby, too, and she tells me all the time that she gets slighted! I think we are "over-zealous" with our older ones!

Nancy said...

Laura, I just read your comment to your dad... and my response... and he said, "You didn't tell her everything I said: 'The first child gets more pictures, but we love them the same!"
