A Big Day

July 12,1991, Michael Anthony Muniz, Jr. was born, and I became a mother.
18 years ago.
I am now the mother of an adult!
Crazy! Seems like yesterday that he was my little "bug":
{Michael- 1 month old}
And now he is an adult. Unbelievable!
We made him our favorite cake {white cake with strawberries and whipped cream} and went to Lucille's BBQ with all 6 of us plus 2 of Michael's friends.
He still hates his picture taken, so with much effort on my part I got this picture of him:

So here he is on his 18th birthday.

Time has really flown by:

July 12, 1991- 8 pounds 4 ounces, 21 inches long

July 12, 2009- 270+ pounds, just shy of 6 feet tall!

18 years ago I entered a new chapter of life, becoming a mother. Yesterday I entered a new chapter, becoming a mother of an adult. Amazing!

Wow! I can't believe you're even old enough to be the mother of an adult!! I LOVE comparing the baby pic to the pic from his birthday. You can totally tell it's the same kid. He sooooooo handsome! Congratulations Mom :)
