It's been 11 years since I first held you in my arms
So very tiny
the baby I was never supposed to be able to have
I don't know where the time went
it's gone so quickly
now as you enter that world of 'tween'
that weird place where I now have the power to embarrass you
and it matters how my hair looks
and if I'm dropping you off in my PJ's
(which I always am)
and I think
"What happened to that little boy
the one who just wanted me there?"
and I also think
"What can I do to embarrass you more?"
but mostly I think
"I really love you"
and I'm amazed at the person you're becoming
almost (but not quite)
my little man
Happy Birthday Zach!
