My cute boy. My sweet boy. You experience life very intensely and still keep me on my toes. You would happily spend all day playing elaborate games with made up characters named after some of your favorite American Ninja Warriors – and in fact – some of those kids had to come with us for your birthday celebrations. You could spend hours, and sometimes do, talking about which kids are with us, how they’re loaded into the car, what they’re eating…
You love Harry Potter, all things LEGO, and making weird faces in pictures. Breakfast food is some of your favorite of all time, which is why we had apple cider donuts from the orchard and pancakes for dinner on your birthday.
Math is probably your favorite subject, because it’s easy for you and you get to do it on the computer! Anything that requires you to hold a pencil and write is your least favorite. All school work is better when you get to snuggle a dog while doing it though!
You have a very generous heart, when you want to, and you’re growing your hair out so you can donate it, and you don’t even care that people mistake you for a girl more often than not. You’re running low on teeth these days, but you still managed to eat corn on the cob this summer. I was mighty impressed!
I’m excited to see the person you’re becoming, but so, so grateful that you’re still into huggles (one of my favorite Devon-isms “It’s a hug and a snuggle combined!”) You give some of the best hugs in the world, which I guess we have Goofy to thank for 🙂
