One day you're bringing your firstborn home from the hospital. The road out ahead seems so long and wonderful. "We'll have so many years together", you think.
Then you're taking your first "mother and son" photos...we were in Wheaton for this one, while Dave was in grad school. I literally decided that morning, "Hey, we should go take a picture together!", so off we went to Walmart! Dave's dear Aunt Annette knit that sweater for him with his name on it. So sweet!
Time is passing...and my hair styles are ever changing! HA!
There are all the birthdays that we celebrated...this was his 5th. We know how to do birthdays...have so much fun at them!
And a few years later, it's another birthday...this one spent at our friends who lived in Frydlant, the Pitcher's, since we were living in the hotel at the time and there wasn't much space there to celebrate.
Then...time sped up. Before I knew it, he was off to his "pinning" ceremony for his last year of high school. Where did time go??
Oh my...and then...it was time to see him off to college. I cried. When did my little guy, my firstborn, grow up?
And now...it's the night before his wedding. HIS WEDDING!!!! He fell in love...found another woman to be the "first" in his life. Tomorrow I will watch him take her hands and say his vows.
I'm so proud of the man he has become! It's a joy to watch him move into his role as a husband. He's going to be a great one!
But in the end...he's my firstborn. My baby. My son.
I love you Tyler!!! I will cry tomorrow...but it will be tears of great joy! You're an awesome man and Lara is one blessed woman to be marrying you in the morning!!!
