Happy Birthday T. !!!!!



Happy Birthday T.!!!! I CAN'T BELIEVE you're 13 today!!!! A teenager!!! It seems like yesterday we were all tucked away in our hospital room getting to know each other. You were such a good baby...sometimes I even forgot I had you. Cindylou was just 15 months old when you were born...I would put her down for a nap and get my shower while you were snoozing in your bouncy seat. I'd come into to the bedroom and jump because there you'd be smiling at me :) Every year on your birthday I take your picture in Daddy's winter snow boots. Here you are on your first birthday ready to celebrate.



On your second birthday.....not so happy to be wearing the boots :(



Look at how cute you were when you were three! I just can't imagine these big, huge boots ever fitting you...I just want you to stay little.



Here you are five on the fifth of January...I think I may have bribed you this year...you are so happy!



And how fast seven came.....It was a gorgeous, sunny day. Perfect for sledding.



The year you tured it 11 it was soooo warm....it broke the record for that day.....which was actually the day you were born! You spent the afternoon playing street hockey and even had a popsicle to cool off.



And now you're my teenager.....how can that be??! I just want to slow it down....to have more fun, to experience new things, to travel to more places, play more games, take more hikes....it's going by so fast T. You are a funny, sensitive, caring boy....I am so proud of you! Happy Birthday!!!!

A teenager?!? Can't be! You obviously had him when you were 16 since we are all 29...

My dd just turned 13 also. Having a teen in the house is so different. Of course you already had one with CindyLou, but now two.

Happy Birthday T

Happy Birthday T! You are such an inspiration with those boots! You need to write a book for pregnant, first time moms....just to help them plan out their traditions. It's too late for me!
