I teared up with this birthday this year. This awesome kid has gotten over the hump of crazy grouchy teenage boy hormones and has became one of those sweetest, most pleasant, responsible, dependable, and handsome teenagers I have ever met. I know I'm his mom, and you all would say that I'm biased. Maybe a little. But if you've met him or know him, I think you'd absolutely agree too!
Obviously with this birthday, we also celebrated a big milestone - DRIVING!! And he passed his driving test and got all his hours in, so he's an official driver. And what a blessing that is!!! It's so strange still, but the reality is setting in and man, it totally takes a different trust in God and letting go even more.
So I've already shared a few things above, but here's 16 more things we love about this guy - Fone....
#1 ~ that you play games with me (Rose)
#2 ~ that you are my best friend (Mario)
#3 ~ you are handsome
#4 ~ you are nice to me and kiss me (Yoda)
#5 ~ you help me with my school if mom is busy (Rose, Pookey, Max)
#6 ~ your drive to always do your best
#7 ~ you babysit me (Max)
#9 ~ you are so responsible and an amazing helper/volunteer who genuinely wants to help others
#10 ~ I like playing games/video games with you (Mario)
#12 ~ your snuggles and smooches (Lady)
#13 ~ you are funny (Melody)
#14 ~ you were the first to call me "Mom" and have made all these firsts so fun and enjoyable

++God love you and bless always, Fone! We love you and are SO proud of you!! May St Christopher always intercede for you in safe travels!++
