Jake is 15!

At 2:27 pm my first child was born and in the blink of an eye, I am the mother of a 15-year old son of whom I am very proud. As a first born, I know how much it sucks to be the first born and Jake has handled it with grace. Easy going and responsible, perhaps his greatest accomplishment to date is being a really great big brother.

Jake "gets" me, never ceases to make me laugh and only seldom succumbs to teenage-dom (or is it dumb?) that leaves me utterly annoyed.

This year he starts high school and though, if I think about it too much I want to cry at how quickly time has passed, I look very forward to the coming years of many, many laughs. And watching him achieving all he is capable of.

Yesterday we celebrated with family and a one bowl chocolate cake topped with the perfect chocolate frosting. Grammy just had a birthday ending in a zero and so we celebrated her accomplishment, too. I know, she doesn't look 50 does she?

Happy Birthday, Cakey and Grammy! We all love, love, love ya.
