I'm still in shock that I have a 14 year old! Well, not really in "shock," but I guess knowing that I will now have a child in high school makes me feel like I should be a mom with experience. However, I'm still learning something new everyday.
When I look at videos or pictures of Isaiah when he was a baby, it brings back memories of how I was so protective of him, yet also expected so much from him. I think so many of us do that with our firstborn's. It's almost like I feel I missed him just being a "child" and subconsciously expected him to be "older" just because he is the eldest.
So, on this day, I just want to reflect on how my "baby" is now a young man.
Physically, he's built like one, and also has the voice to match.
But, he's still sensitive on the inside. He's like a gentle giant. All 5"9 of him! He's still not embarrassed to hug or kiss me goodbye in front of his friends, or even just hug me goodbye if I'm going to the grocery store.
He's strong, yet doesn't realize it. He's a good friend, and is very loyal. He's hilarious, and can make any of us crack up at the drop of a hat. He's mellow, and easy going. He loves to just chill out. He's never been one of those obnoxious boys. He loves the Lord, and he has wonderful friends.
He's an amazing son, and I'm so blessed to be his mom.
I love you, Isaiah. We love you!
Happy 14th Birthday!!!
