The baby boy isn't a boy anymore. Today he turns 17 and is entering his last year in High School. He was such a spry little guy who always keeps me active. Anthony was the kid who had to do things a little different like rolling instead of crawling. He always knows how to make me laugh, such a quick witted character. He's had his share of successes & struggles. I've watched him grown into an intelligent & respectful young man i am proud to call my son.
Yes Alexi & Anthony were born 2 days & 3 years apart. It wasn't planned, it just happened that way. When they were super young, they didn't mind sharing birthdays. Through the elementary & middle school years it was a different story. Now we have come full circle and they plan a day to celebrate together.
Alexi: I didn't embrace these combined parties when I was little but now I love sharing our special days together!
Yesterday we had family over for a birthday dinner. We sang happy birthday at the same time to them and i loved how they sang it to each other. it was truly a special day.
