My baby turns 21 today Donovan Baseball

I really don’t know how this happened so fast…

I remember a little boy with a wonderful smile…

Donovan Driving

…who couldn’t wait to drive.  Who met his deductible by the end of January each year.  Who hated naps, who rarely slept through the night, who adored his big sister and the Gators, and who made me get weepy just to look at him.

He loved the Ninja Turtles, and wanted to put them in the toilet becasue  – “they live in the sewer, Dad!”  He wanted to help, and was always saying, “I do dat, Daddy!”

He was always drumming…had great timing, and his Mother made this Christmas outfit for him…I’m sure he hated it, but what a great smile.

He. loved his cowboy outfit.  His sister had one too…

He entered the Nordstrom Make a Tile Contest, and his was chosen for the floor at the Mall of Georgia…

He hated that picture!  And wasn’t thrilled with his Mom for making him make the tile!  But, it’s a memory, and it’s still there.

He grew up…

Stopped calling me Daddy and it changed to Dad. 

I miss Daddy.
