One quarter of a century ago I looked like this. Yes, if you look at last Monday's post you'll see the entry about Amanda's birthday. Exactly three years, one week, three hours and forty five minutes later Andrew came into this world.
Andrew was quite the charmer. Here he is at 16 months old with Dad Ron on the occasion of his first visit to a circus. He was more interested in the Spotlight Newspapers photographer who snapped this pose than the elephants in the center ring.
And here is my little charmer today with his boss, Gov. David Paterson and his co-worker, Justin on the far right.
Andrew, I thank God every day for the gift that you are to me and my family. You make me proud to say I am your mother. I pray that you have a wonderful, long and happy life ahead. Happy 25th Birthday Anj and God bless you!
