Do you ever cry a little when your baby is another year older?

I tear up a little. The time goes so fast! I think of all the hard stuff throughout the years and the really great stuff. And how much I really am lucky to have such a great kid, even if he is my little rough tough rowdy boy! Happy Birthday little man! Ahhh I'm doing it again! I need a tissue!

  • Happy Birthday to your son. No I never cried on their birthdays. I shed a few tears that first time they got on the school bus, and when they graduated.

  • He is my NICU baby too! It's so hard to believe how sick he was and how rowdy and strong he is today!

  • Sweetie, my girls are 33 yo & 31 yo. My twin boys just turned 18 yo. I still get misty on their birthdays. It's a combination of "where did the time go" & being proud of the wonderful, beautiful kids I've raised.

  • I don't cry but I did just find myself going through my son's photos from birth til now and just getting the warm fuzzies. He'll be four on the 12th and I really cherish those memories of him when he was a baby! I am excited for him to grow up a little every year, though. I am enjoying him more and more as he gets older.
