Fourteen?! I simply cannot believe you are fourteen years old today. I know, I know...I sound like an old lady talking about how fast time flies (when it seems to go so slowly to you). But seriously, I remember the day that you were born like it was yesterday. Every single detail (which I promise not to scar you with, but believe me, I remember every.single.detail.). You were loved from the moment you were born, just because you were our son/grandson/nephew/cousin. And now you are loved for so many other reasons. Your sense of humor; your laugh; your intelligence; your love of baseball; your athletic abilities; the way you love and respect your family (okay, most of the time). All of these things make up the personality of the one teenager on the planet that I love most...you. It has been an awesome experience so far, being your mom. I can't wait to see what the future holds for you!
