HaPpY 11th BiRtHdAy!!!

Yesterday was my oldest son's birthday.  I can't believe he is 11 and will be going into the 6th grade in just a couple short months.  How did he go from this...

to this, so quickly?

He is growing up to be such a sweet, thoughtful and responsible very young man.  I am so proud and blessed to be his Mom. 

Some of the things I love about him are...
~his sincerity and thoughtfulness for others
~how much he admires his Dad
~he ALWAYS asks me how my day was before he goes to bed
~he doesn't mind helping me empty the dishwasher
~he still gives me lots of hugs and tells me he loves me (even without me doing it first)
~his love for his brothers (even though they can really get on his nerves sometimes)
~his patience and love for babies and toddlers (he adores his 4-month old cousin and the 18-month we care for)
~his passion for basball (and he is such a great 2nd basemen!)

Since I didn't get to post anything on Father's Day I am adding a pic of my hubby and the boys.  Both Nathan & Sam had tournaments so unfortunately we had to split up for most of the day.  My husband LOVED being able to watch his boys play ball all day though (Nathan's team came in 2nd and Sam's team came in 3rd!). 

Happy birthday to my sweet Nathan!  Thanks to my honey for being such a phenomenal role model & active father and a wonderful & supportive husband. 

 I also have to wish my Mom a very Happy Birthday as well.  So happy to have her in my life as a Mother and a friend.  You can see the pillow I made her here.  She loved it!
