My little boy, who isn't so little anymore, turned 13 today! It is incredible seeing what a great young man he has turned out to be.
Yesterday we had his birthday party. It was a mistake on my part because most of his friends had family plans, but quite a few people showed up anyway. It was wonderful seeing my son interact with other children. We had children from one year old up to 13 years old there and he was wonderful with each of the children.
I had told him he wasn't allowed to be taller than me until he turned 13, but he willed himself to be taller than me before he turned 13! I am about 5'6" and he is 5'7". The picture below shows how tall he is compared to me.
Today we surprised him by making a room upstairs with a TV and couch for him. We also went to eat at his favorite Mexican restaurant.
I am so thankful that I am able to be his mother! Happy 13th birthday little guy!
