My Baby is 9...

He was due to arrive August 23rd, 2001. HE had a different plan.
After an entire plate full of peanut butter cookies and laying on the couch....
I got up, my water broke, and my world changed FOREVER.
 Little did I know that just 9 short years later that HE would teach me some of life's greatest lessons.
Here are 9 things that I LOVE about my 9 year old....
 Happy Birthday Baby!

1. He loves God and asks me frequently how many times he can
"pray" to ask God into his heart.
{I think he just wants to make sure}! 

2. He has more math power in his pinkie that I do in my whole body...
yes, he is my TIP calculator!

3. He is a great big brother...
give or take a punch or two

4. He has a lot of great ideas that could turn into something big for him.
 {I expect all of you to buy the  Roboball}!

5. He has grown 3 inches in the past year and his shoe size is 4.

6. His FAVORITE food is Spaghetti and Meatballs & The Meatball sub @ Subway.
Who can blame him?

7. His current idea for his profession is a Sportscaster.....
Can I get a S-Y-R-A-C-U-S-E?

8. He absolutely can NOT get enough of sports.
He loves it all! Baseball, Football, Basketball, Soccer, Hockey ;)

9. He is LOVED by his family for everything he is now,
and everything he is about to become!

WE LOVE YOU!!!

Happy 9th Birthday!!!!

Mom, Dad & Brother

Happy Birthday big guy! I love the list. MOdel is my math whiz.
He would be a great sportscaster. HE COULD GO ALL THE WAY! I know Quarterback will go all the way he is one smart cookie.
Have a wonderful day!
