Happy Birthday Baby Boy

Thirty years ago today we welcomed our bouncing baby boy. Nicholas Patrick Valenta joined our family early in the morning on November 23, 1981. He came into the world in a big way, weighing in at 10 pounds 5 ounces, and he's been larger than life ever since. He embraces life at full tilt and has never lost his childlike enthusiasm for fun.

I love the book Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. It always makes me think of Nick. I gave him this book when he left for college. We both cried.
"I'll love you forever 
I'll love you for always
As long as I'm living
My baby you'll be."

Happy Birthday, Baby Boy! 


  1. She'll love you forever, but she'll always love me more. ;) Sister

  2. What a good-looking kid, er, young man! My oldest will be 30 next August. So crazy how they grow. "Love You Forever" is a favorite of mine, too, although my middle daughter says she'll murder me if I ever climb in her window at night to rock her (or "stalk" her, she says).

    Happy birthday to your boy!
