Happy Birthday, Grandson #1

I give thanks to my God always for you..... 1 Corinthians 1:4a

Today is my first grandson's birthday.  He is 15 and he is a joy indeed.

I didn't get to meet Adam until he was 8 months old.  The months before the trip out to California seemed to go on forever and I had a deep longing to see and hold him and get hugs and kisses from that sweet baby.  When I finally got ahold (that's a southern word) of him, it was such joy!  He's been lighting up our lives ever since!

He was born smiling!

A joy to have visit with us.....he loves the water and took to swimming instantly.

When he wasn't feeling well, he would snuggle with Nana.

Ever the handsome little boy

Time flew and he's grown up so much!

And learned so much.

Still that smile!

Today he is 15 years old.  I'm repeating myself because I can hardly believe how the time has gone by and all the joy he has given us over the years and look forward to seeing him grow up to be a wonderful man.

Adam has always known he wants to be an architect and is such a help at home.  He can fix most anything and is always willing to pitch in and hang pictures or towel bars, he can fix or put together whatever needs fixing or putting together.  He is handy!

Over the years, I would go out to visit him and he would come to visit his Florida family as he says.  He has lots of Florida family to see and do things with when he's here for a visit.

Adam loves to fish, swim, shoot guns safely, he loves an adventure and loves to be with Uncle David.

We will miss seeing Adam this summer and hope to see him in the fall!

Adam, you are loved!
