My baby is 13!!


My baby is 13 on Saturday. It is so strange. I can hardly believe it. I can still see him as a toddler bending to lap up a drink with duke at the water bowl.

He has always been vivacious and outgoing. Always ready to have have fun, play and be spontaneous. He is one of the funnest people I know.

He also has a tenacious spirit. If he wants something, he stops at nothing to get it. Unless of course he encounters an impenetrable wall known as "mother".

He is so kind to animals which is something I admire. He is currently keeping a baby chick in his room that he brought home from school. Obedience is not one of his strong points as I had specifically told him not to bring it home when he asked! lol

He loves sports and he's good at them without much practice. He just finished soccer and has started wrestling. He wants to play football in the spring. He loves anything he tries. He's played baseball, taken Karate and Tae Kwan Do and loved it. What a well rounded boy I have raised!

I love this kid!! He is beautiful, inside and out. I am so proud of the man he is becoming. I love his determination and fortitude. He has the world waiting. I can't wait to see what he becomes! Happy 13, my beloved!!!
