Today, Nathan turns twenty-four.
I realize that when a son becomes an adult, you don’t make as big a deal over his birthday as you did when he was just a little fella. But I’m feeling extra sentimental today since this is Nathan’s last birthday before his own child is born—a birthday marking the end of one precious era and the beginning of another.
I must say that looking at pictures of him when he was a baby is taking on an added fascination for me as I try to picture what his own son is going to look like. I am so excited about that first meeting.
When Nathan was little, one of the many nicknames I gave him was “Sonny One.” He was my first son and he was also such a cheerful, sunny child so the name combined both things.
In honor of the day when my Sonny One came into my life, I’d like to share with you a celebratory conglomeration of Nate Pictures.
(Hover your mouse over the photos to pause, go forward, or go back.)
I love you, Nathan Andrew Smith and can’t wait till the day you meet your own Sonny One. You made me a mom and Noah will make you a dad– the Sonny One Circle will continue.
