my not-so-little guy

so small –

years gone by –

my little guy

has gotten so tall.

he is still just as cute

with a twinkle in his eye

and a giggle that warms my heart.

he was once my little baby boy

NOW a sixteen year old bundle of joy!

Happy Birthday ‘Little Guy’!!


A very, very, very long time ago….
about one years old

summer of 2013
Peyton and his ‘corn’

Terms of endearment: 

Jordan calls his brother Little Guy.

Peyton calls his brother Guy.

I call them both Pnut and a whole host of other names of which I cannot reveal or I risk being disowned.

    No way! Is your son’s bday today…10/25? Mine too! He’s 10 today 🙂 I am completely enjoying this milestone of a decade of life, a decade of motherhood. I feel too close to it to write anything coherent..perhaps a few days out will give me the perspective I need. Great tribute to your ‘little guy’ 🙂
