A Fabulous Find For A Friday-----Little Boo

A big birthday happened today. A big 10th birthday!

Its almost impossible to believe that ten years have gone by....and that my little boy is growing up so fast. He is my baby, and yes, I called him "Little Boo" when he was little----as his little lips were always pursed as if he was saying "boo". He is a special little boy----one that deals with so much for his young life, and hardly ever complains.

There are so many reasons that I adore him:

I love that he always gives me the best snuggles ever----and I am going to be devastated when those end.

I love that he always cares about others----how he worried that some boys were treating a girl badly in his class and he asked them to stop.

I love that he is so into exploring and looking up everything----from the human body and how it functions, to how space and the planets are formed and why, why, why..... He is so inquisitive.

I love that he wants to help out, whether it is learning how to clean a toilet (and yes, he knows how to do it now) or putting the silverware away after the dishes are cleaned.

I love how he knows so many different recording artists by hearing them on the radio----from Elton John, to Styx, to Queen, to Coldplay and U2.....he always knows them, and is right on!

I love how he goes to my theatre hour after hour as I teach voice, have rehearsals, organize costumes and do a myriad of things and he just reads or does homework, or plays quietly with his toys, and sometimes entertains himself with doing little tricks to make the students smile.

I love how he loves to read, and finished all the Harry Potter books---the first three before school started, in about 3 1/2 weeks! And the cutest part was that he REALLY wanted it to be real.....he wanted to really go to a wizard school himself.

I love that he believes in dragons. And all things mythological. He is devout.

I love how he looks up to his siblings. He knows that they are older, and don't always have time for him, but he cherishes and looks forward to each time that they come home to hang with us, or when he can go to their houses and spend the night. He loves his brother and sisters.

I love when he giggles and laughs when I talk baby talk to him or act crazy in the mornings. (as I am wont to do when I am tired in the mornings...)

I love that he says the cutest things sometimes----in all seriousness, and doesn't even realize how adorable he is.

I love how he is so funny at other times, and how he tries to make other kids laugh, and be happy in his presence.

I love how he loves to play games with his Dad, and can spend hours building things with him, then learns how to take pictures on his Dad's camera.

There are so many other things that make me love this little guy, but it would take almost a day to write them all down.

He is my gem, my little guy, my little Boo.

WHAT A LITTLE SWEETHEART (sorry, I had caps lock on!)

Isn't it freaking you out a little that your baby is in the double digits?

Shawn, take a good look at that last photo. That is the future. He looks so grown up there. Seriously, he is leaving babyhood behind at a galloping rate. Sorry. But he will make a fantastic adult and you have a few years left until then, but be warned. I see it in that darling almost-grown-up face

You've got a sweet sweet boy there. It has got to be a testament to your parenting that he is so helpful and caring.

In the last photo you can almost picture what he will look like as a teenager.
