31 Years Ago Today...

31 years ago today...my life changed because I had Joshua! I remember holding him, looking at him, saying "he's my SON", "I'm a MOM!" He was a big boy...9 lbs. 3 oz. Look at those puffy cheeks!30 years ago...he loved playing in the park... I can hardly believe 31 years have gone by. So much has happened and still I am so proud of Joshua. Through the years, I've watched him grow and marveled (and sometimes agonized) over the changes that have come. Going from being an only child to having a brother and sister. The school years and all that brings...joining the Marines...and then-
2 years ago today, his life wonderfully changed again when he married Erica. Now he has his own family...Joshua, Erica, and Thalia. I love how he loves his family... how he has grown through the years to be what he is today.

Happy Birthday, Joshua
and
Happy Anniversary Joshua and Erica!

Happy Anniversary Josh and Erica and also Happy Birthday! That was a fun wedding. I had no idea you were such a fat baby Grute... I guess that belly isn't entirely your fault after all.

Love your brother

I remember when you were born. My first grandbaby. Your granddad was so proud as he handed out cigars to his buddies. I still have the vase that your first flowers were in.Your granddad called you Big Josh. When he would talk to you on the phone and you would tell him "don't move a muscle", he would turn and tell me what you said. He wanted you to be a golfer. After he had your golf club made he would say, "maybe another Jack". Your were special then and you are so very special now. Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary. I love you all. Saddie
