That's My Baby Boy!

My how they do grow up! This is my Tommy, who is venturing into the world of professional bodybuilders. He placed 4th in his class at the Northern Kentucky competition this weekend.

Tom is 23 and is into natural bodybuilding, meaning no supplements, just lots of exercise, weightlifting and a controlled diet. He's amazing and so disciplined. And he does this while maintaining a 3.7 GPA at West Virginia University. Not that I'm a proud momma or anything...

Here's part of the lineup of his class; Tommy is on the end. I think he stacks up pretty well against the others. (The photos are from a camera phone and I got them from Tommy's Facebook page, so please pardon the quality).

I am always surprised by the things my sons get into. That's the joy of parenting--seeing what your children do and the adults they become as they grow.

You have every right to be proud of him Granny Sue! I know I would be if he were mine! Not that I'm old enough to be his mama but I'm almost old enough.... lol
