9 years ago today a beautiful baby boy was born. Our son came to us very punctual (he was born on his due date) and very happy. He changed our lives in way we were aware, but couldn't yet imagine. Parenthood has been a blessing - we have the fun of our times (even when he now calls us 'mean' when he doesn't get what he wants :))

He's still a very happy little boy, as you can see from the pictures:

1st year

Years 2-9

Happy birthday, love!

May you
Always be blessed
With walls for the wind, 
A roof for the rain, 
A warm cup of tea by the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you and
All that your heart might desire.

[An Old Gaelic blessing]


  1. Happy Birthday William from your Pennsylvania friends the Recla's. Hope you enjoy your day!!!! See ya in a few months...

    1. Thank you, Kathy - I will send gim your wishes! We are looking forward to seeing you too! Hugs from all of us :)

  2. Happy Birthday to your little boy, Alicia!

  3. Wonderful pictures. Happy Birthday, sweet boy.

  4. What an adorable little boy you have, I love the way you put the photos like that through the years in a little mosaic.
    Happy Birthday to your little guy. I see you're trying to sell on ArtFire, they are so hard to sell things on..don't you think? Do they make you pay a monthly fee? I think you should give Etsy a try it's much nicer and only 20 cents per item for three months of listing. You surely could sell those pretty things there. I want to go to Canada for a vacation soon, I have wanted to go there and Alaska. Have a great day!
