So hard to believe that 17 years ago (almost to the minute as I write this) my first baby came into this world and life just has not been the same since. Amazing to see how big they have grown.  Aren’t they just adorable? Seems like a lifetime ago when we celebrated this birthday up here in Vermont.

TJ really, really wanted a Carvel ice cream cake for his birthday this year, can’t you tell how excited he is?

He made sure that he had a sizeable piece of cake for himself…. first. And yes, that is one-fourth of the cake that he sliced for himself…. and he ate.

Happy Birthday TJ!
