Happy Birthday Justin!

Today is my first baby's 24th birthday. That just amazes me! Justin was born on Halloween Day at 2:42 PM and life was never the same from that day forward. I have always loved being Justin's mother just as I do his sister and brother. I take my job seriously, I work hard at it and I love it. It gives me great purpose. Thankfully, now I have the luxury of becoming friends with my son...what a gift.

I love my Justin dearly and I wanted to put this little slide show together to give you a glimpse of Justin through the years. There were a few pics in the middle that I would have like to have inserted but he has a lot of his own childhood pics as well so I worked with what I had.

Justin is my heart. We speak the same language. Actually, my dad, Justin and I are very much alike. There are times that makes us clash but the great thing about me and J as well as my dad is that we say what we need to and move hard feelings. I think that is a true gift. Justin He is a wonderful young man; smart, loving, funny and an all around wonderful guy. Hey, do you think I am biased. yes, I am but it is all true ;0)

Mr. J ~ Happy 24th Birthday Sweets! May the year to come be all that you desire it to be. I love you with all of my heart as does Marc, Katie and Ethan.

Enjoy your day and see you later!

Happy Birthday Justin. I hope you one day you can forgive your mama for putting up that slide show - lol.

Seriously Lori, I can't believe how melancholy watching the slide show made me feel. It was incredible to watch Justin (and you) grow up before my eyes. I know it won't be long until my kids are 24. Time is so precious. Can you believe he was once that little teeny baby?
Now he is an incredible young man, all in the blink of an eye.
