Happy Birthday to my 3rd Son!

May is a crazy, crazy month. First is my Sister’s Anniversary, my Mom’s Birthday, my Daughter’s Birthday, My Niece/GodDaughter’s Birthday, My Birthday, and my Son’s Birthday. May is finally winding down. My Son’s Birthday is the sign that it is all finally coming to an end.

Nathan was born to 2 older Brothers in the wee hours of the morning. I remember it well since hubby was falling asleep while I was in labor and I kept nudging him to stay awake.

After we got home, I was, of course in love, but there was something very different about this baby. I noticed that when he looked at me, he looked at me as if he knew me before. It was the strangest thing.

It was an eerie feeling at first, but the feeling passed, as he was my little bundle of joy. He was a very happy baby and very receptive to song. He loved bouncing around to Gloria Estefan’s Reach Album, especially Party Time. He would just bounce every ounce of his little body all over the place. It was so funny to watch! He was a fun baby.

Fast Forward to today, Nathan is a talented Drummer, who tinkles on the piano, marches in the Drum Line Section of the Marching Band at his High School as well as the Concert Band and Pit Band for the School’s plays.

We are proud of Nathan and his talents.

Happy Birthday, Nathan!

Loudly yours,


Happy Birthday, Baby Girl!

Today is actually my Birthday, but I did not have time to write about my 1st baby Girl on her Birthday, so I am going to dedicate this blog entry to her.


My eldest Daughter was born to 3 older Brothers who fell in love with her and to parents who were very happy to have a girl. (Especially Mommy)


It was so much fun to dress her up and dream of shopping days and makeup sessions.  She was a good baby, but a screamer, since she did not speak until about 16 months old (in our immediate family, that is late, since we are mostly all loud)  Her first words?


“MINE!!!”  As my family members can attest, this little girl was a screamer! 


Funny thing is, she is on the quiet side now…and, oddly enough,

when she went to Pre-School, she did not speak to any adults, except the beloved Mrs. Burger. 😉



Now she is a growing, talented teenager with a beautiful voice and a very creative, lefty who has the world as her oyster.  We are proud of you!





Happy Birthday, you make us proud!


Loudly yours,
