Hmm…the last picture looks like the first one because his eyes twinkle the way they did when he was a baby!
It was 39 years ago today that I heard the doctor say, “It’s a boy!” (Back then we couldn’t see pictures of our babies before they were born!) I looked at my husband Rich and said, “Oh, Richard, you got your boy! You got your boy!” He looked like he was in shock after watching his first live birth! In a voice that sounded as shocked as he looked, he replied, “How ‘bout that! How ‘bout that!” We named our boy Matthew Dean, but for the longest time everyone called him “Little Richard” because he looked so much like his Daddy! He still does…well, except for the hair! =) He also has his Dad’s voice, sense of humor, twinkle in his eyes, ability to DJ, and love of electronics. His friends call him Chip; his two sisters know him as Brother, and his niece and two nephews (soon to be three nephews) call him Uncle Brother. As “Da Mama,” I proudly call him Son! ♫ Happy Birthday, my good Son! ♫ I love you!Share on Facebook
