Growing Up!

Look at him. He is so handsome. He is so smart. He is my son.

Austin Sean was born June 18, 1999. He will be 10 next month. That just hardly seems possible at all. He is definately loved. I pray every single day that he really does know that.

I remember being pregnant with him 10 years ago and rubbing my big ol belly and wondering what kind of man he would be. I still wonder. I hold onto God's promise that if we raise up our children in the ways of the Lord, when he is old, he will not depart from it. So I know that he is in the Father's hand. I know that he has such great aspirations. I know that God directs his path.

I want the whole world to know how proud I am of this boy. How proud I am already of the man he will become. How proud I am to be his mom. Never ever forget, son, that you are loved and cherished. Never forget that there is a place in my heart that no one can fill but you!

Wow! I can't believe he's going to be 10! I remember meeting him when he was just a tiny baby. He's so grown up now...and we're both so old! How did that happen?

I don't know, we must not have been looking because I would have NEVER let us get this old. UGH! I still have the outfit that you bought for him before he was born. He had his pictures made in it and wore it home from the hospital. I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends to share my life with.
