Weekend Wishes

This boy...
This boy will be turning 13 soon and we will celebrate him this weekend.

This boy who melted my heart before he was even born...entering the world with minutes after he was born.

This boy with his giant blue eyes always pulled my heart out of my chest as he would cry when I left him at pre-school, kindergarten, first grade...

This boy with his passion...once he gets something in his mind it is stuck there for quite some time. Take him to see a spider man movie and within minutes of being home...he becomes spider man.  

Some of his loves and passions over the years: 
bugs bunny {He made ears and a bunny tail and insisted on buying carrots with the green tops still attached}. 
garbage trucks {I can't tell you how many times I filled mini garbage cans around the house so the garbage man could pick them up.} 
snakes {See that net in the photo above? It has a snake in it. He even had a birthday party one year with a reptile guy. My living room was filled with scaly, slithering critters}. 
becoming almost every character in a movie we've seen...most recently - baby driver. {He walks around listening to music with his head phones}. 
fishing {This is an ongoing one}. 
cooking. {This is his latest and greatest}.

This boy, who tells everyone he was born in San Diego, loves the beach and is a natural surfer.

This boy could spend every moment outside playing ball.

This boy is a professional shopper {just like his dad}. He loves clothes, shoes, sports equipment...

This boy may have eyes of blue like his dad, but has my heart and soul. He wears his heart on his sleeve and never passes by the chance to snuggle or give me a hug.

I can't believe my baby is 13. {I told him it wasn't allowed to happen. Obviously, the universe didn't listen}. He is growing quickly. He is taller than mimi and will pass me soon. He almost has the same shoe size as Mr. C. This morning, he was very excited to tell me that he is bulking up and gaining weight.

You know that book, "I"ll Love You Forever"? I can't get through that book without bawling, but that's me. I will be the old mom climbing into his window and rocking him...
"I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always. As long as I'm living my baby you'll be."

Happy birthday sweet boy! Now, let's eat chocolate cake!
