Some things are even sweeter with time. Can't believe that eight years ago, I had my one and only son. He stands out even more forcefully with four sisters surrounding him. You rock my world, Alex!
There is this beautiful post going around facebook where two eloquent Mamas talk about "Mom never being the picture." It has to do with vanity, etc. I'd have to add that I'm never in the picture because I'm always the one taking the picture! So I'm making a conscious effort to end each photo session with "Take one with me and the birthday boy, please!" (Thank you, Jon!)
