The day after your first Birthday it snowed. 
Not very much, but enough for you 
to roll together a snowman.
Grandma and PapPap were here visiting 
and Grandma was thrilled that you
 could use the snow suit she had bought 
you when you were born. I was positive you 
would NEVER use it in Vegas. 

February 1, 1987
You were one year and one day old.
Twenty Five years have flown by, 
no, they have galloped by,
leaving me to wonder how and 
why it went by so fast.

Today, flooded with memories and overwhelmed with 
the love I have for you, I wish you a Happy Birthday
my Dearest Son.

Our parents knew didn't they? That time goes by so quickly when our children are young. Mine are 26 and about to be 22 and I can remember them as babies so clearly.

Happy Birthday to your wonderful son and congratulations on raising such a wonderful man. Ann

Happy Birthday to Scooter, he is a lucky man to have you. Is it okay to say he was darling in those photos or maybe prematurely handsome :)
