Wow! I am always amazed how fast the years go by!
This morning he had a little birthday surprise waiting for him when he opened his bedroom door.
He opened the door, paused, kicked the balloons out of the way, paused, then reclosed the door. Had to laugh at that reaction!
Tonight, we had the famous Oreo Cookie Dessert, which is often requested in lieu of birthday cake.
I love this boy to the moon and back! Truly. He is such a quiet kid, yet so full of everything good. He is handsome and caring, with hysterically funny wit. I cannot imagine our lives without our A-Rod.
Happy Birthday! I love you more than you can ever imagine!!!
