How can He be 14?

Our youngest of 6 turns 14 today. I'm a bit emotional. I didn't think I would be.....
but I am.

He was born 17 months after Wyatt. It was my best pregnancy. I only gained 18lbs (I was still nursing Wyatt) but better than that.... I wasn't sick! Anyway, this is about Wesley not me.  Funny how we always tell our birth stories. Get a bunch of woman together ... and boom.... birth stories. I don't mind I love it.

Wesley was my 6th c-section and I was almost 42. He wasn't a surprise. We were hoping for another....   maybe not that soon but God knows better and I am so thankful they are 17 months apart.
Wesley has really went through a growth spurt this year....  he has lost 20lbs and grown several inches. Looking at pics from last year till now ..... WOW..

Wesley loves sports, he plays the drums and recently started playing for our church on the worship team, he loves bulldogs....   the Georgia Bulldogs but also English bulldogs and french bulldogs. He loves to surf, and skim board.... oh and skateboard.

He is a good young man. He looks out for me....   doesn't mind cooking or cleaning up. Helps out a lot.

I know it will not be long till Wes is grown and gone.  I have the legacy app on my phone and it tells me how many weeks, days, minutes left till he graduates.  Our associate pastor does the marbles....

You have approximately 936 weeks from the day a child is born until he or she graduates from high school, —and the weeks move quickly. Filled with approximately 1,000 marbles, the Legacy Marble Jar serves as a visual reminder that will help parents play for keeps. Because when you see how much time you have left, you tend to do more with the time you have now.

So my marbles with Wesley  are disappearing......   213 weeks, 1488 days, 35,723 hours.....  you get the picture.  Time flies. 

So very thankful for our Wesley! Happy Birthday, Wes!
