Happy Birthday, Henry

Today is Henry's 7th birthday. Easy date to remember—Income Tax is due unless there is a weekend involved (there is) or some arcane holiday in DC (there is.) Henry is grandchild #13 and he has changed a lot from that little tyke with the mop of brown curls. He's grown into an active boy who loves to join his dad watching baseball.

I also wanted to post my favorite birthday photo of him—and that is where I came across a major problem. Although I have photos from the last couple of years on my lap-top, the entire iPhoto file was loaded onto the desktop computer. A few weeks ago, on March 9 to be exact, we had a brown-out. Every photo on the computer, every event, shows the date of March 9, 2012. I'm sure there is an easy way to solve the problem, easier than transferring photos via Dropbox to my lap-top, where they magically assume their correct date, but . . .

However, by chance I found the photo I wanted, taken on Henry's third birthday. Poor guy was so tired that he couldn't stay awake to cut the cake. Now if I can only stay awake to figure out the dates of nine years worth of photos.

He is a lovely little boy and I wish him a very Happy Birthday. Love the one with the cake!
Was sorry to hear about the photos glitch. You know, I think I prefer a photo album! They are safer than trusting a computer.
