My lil drummer boy...

Happy Birthday to you...Happy Birthday to you...Happy Birthday lil Davey... Happy Birthday to you.



~July 26, 1986~
~One day old~














Today is my one and only son Birthday. My son David. In this picture he is just one day old. And today he turns "21".He was born to us on this day, July 25, 1986. Weight:8 lbs 15 oz. and 19 inches long. Big feet, long fingers, and music in his soul. When I was carrying him I always put a music box to my belly at night to lull him, but it made him move, kick, dance. After he was born he kicked his feet about to the sound of anything with a beat. From the day he could stand this lil one wanted to move to music. Long car rides from California to Florida, we had the tunes on and he was a happy traveler. Had a walkman (remember those) CD player then Ipod, in his hands whenever you see him. And now he writes music and plays the keyboard and guitar too. The only thing he would put the music down for was to swim in the pool or the ocean. Learned to swim at about 4, and surf at 10. Drumming became his passion at the age of 12. And the beating of the drum hasn't stopped since. Marching band, concerts, and garage bands has been our lives till ah, what's today... boom-boom-boom, bam, bam, bam. This is what I hear in my head, always. But he is good, I mean real good. This boy can play a drum and it is amazing. He'd kick me if he knew I was posting this, so I won't show him. Today he starts drum line practice, yet again, but this time he is assisting the teacher with the new lil drummers just getting started. We love him dearly and couldn't be any more proud of my baby boy, our son...

Our Little Boy

Do you Hear,
What is so Near?
Those happy little Feet,
Who Never miss
A Beat.
The Happy Joy,
Of our little Boy.
Who's silly Laugh,
Makes us Whole
Not Half.
And Then at Night,
When He's tucked in Tight.
Will he ever Know,
How much
We Love Him So?
