Thirteen years ago today I was resting comfortably after giving birth to a 9 pound, 11 ounce little munchkin. (Ouch)

He is Mr. Personality, he is smart, he is caring, he has a great sense of humor, and there are so many other things I love about him I could go on for days…but if I do that, then I’ll be spending his birthday HERE at the computer instead of UPSTAIRS with the Birthday Boy.

So, for your enjoyment, here’s a walk down our Memory Lane. Thank goodness we have a world-class photographer in the family; she’s responsible for a few of these!

Aww! Three days old.

One of my favorites. Don’t you want to eat him up?

Cue the Angelic Music!

One of his fave things. We called him Linus.

Always a showman: “Ladies and Gentlemen, presenting…Mama!”

Our little Buckaroo, and a Native American, too.

Getting bigger!

Fun with two of his favorites: Aunt Julie and Root Beer.

First Day of School, 2007.

Happy 13th Birthday! Love you!
