21 today!

i can hardly believe it's been 21 years since i gave birth to you and what an adorable baby you were!

here you are at around ten months old a little bit hesitant about that pool of water nearby.

around eight years old - you went through a phase of wanting your hair long, hence the mullet. from an early age, you loved anything to do with martial arts and the military so it wasn't a surprise that you became a bruce lee fan later on and still have your sights set on joining the special forces.

around ten years of age. your face always lit up when you smiled.

your graduation formal dance in 2005. how smart and dashing you looked in that top hat and tails....i was so proud of you!

dressed up as wolverine in 2007. you LOVE to have fun and i so admire the way you live your life to the fullest, enjoying each moment as it comes. there's never a dull moment with you around.

Christmas Day 2008

January 2009 - what can i say. you studied personal fitness at TAFE and your health and fitness have become a huge part of your life ever since. you certainly enjoy all the attention those muscles bring you too. lol

reece, i am so proud of the mature and balanced young man you have become. thank you for the special moments we have shared, watching movies together, the endless discussions on quantum theory, the secret, and our shared interest in conspiracy theories. my wish for you is that all your dreams come true and that you live a joyful, long, and healthy life.

love mum xo
