We are celebrating another birthday in my family. The youngest monster is turning 9! It just doesn't seem possible. One minute he is a baby and the next he is nine! What next his graduation? Or, Please heaven no, his marriage?! The time flies by when you aren't looking and then it sneaks up on you and smashes you over the head with reality. Oh what a rude awakening.
We don't see Chris (topher) nearly as much as we want to, but that doesn't make the love weaker. Mom and Grandma talk about him and think about him all the time so it seems like he is standing across the room. They miss him and want to say hello so without further ado, here is my mom.
When did you grow up so much? It seems like only yesterday when you were an Elmo fan who loved to eat sweet potatoes. I am so very proud of you, all of Heather's boys. You are becoming (much to quickly) a wonderful person that anyone would be proud to call her nephew. I hope that you got your card and that we will see you VERY soon. All my love and best wishes, your loving Auntie Am.
I know that mom is very proud of her family and would hiss at anyone who would say otherwise. I just can't quite believe that the little boy who liked to pull on my tail (not hard, it felt good) has grown up so fast! All three are growing up to be well developed humans who love cats! We will have another birthday soon for the middle monster, Steven. He is going to be 11! I can't believe it, so much time has gone by! I am going to play with my new toy. Scooby is trying to take off with it! GTG!
Here he is, Chris! At a much younger age !
