the big ONE-OH


today that's how old my oldest noisemaker is.

a few fun things about you right now:
*your passion is history...more precisely world war I and world war II

*you have so much in common with your dad and grandfather it's not even funny. (no really it's not)
case in point:
there are many times when you do something that makes me look at you and go "i mean seriously?...what WERE you thinking?!" to which your dad will whisper to me something along the lines of "i'm having a flash back right now of when i was nate's age and my mom would look at me and say the same exact thing for something pretty close to what he just did." i've had this same whispered conversation with your grandfather as well.

not only that, but you and your grandfather both share the love of CRAZY cats that only love you and hiss and scratch and and hide from everyone else.

* amongst your peers you can see someone having a hard time and you will try your darnedest to make it okay.

*you have a weird bond with animals.

*you also have this special bond with your brother

*you still like to draw except now it's all about tanks and soldiers and yeah more war stuff.

*you make life interesting to say the least.

*it's been wonderful watching you turn into a young man.

*i'm proud to be your mom.

we love ya kid and hope you have a great fantabulous 10th birthday.

No way your first born is this old already. What a cutie! It's only fair since my youngest will be 32 this week. Blink twice and you're there. Enjoy!

My kids had so much fun with Nate when you came for a visit. I remember him being very kind. Ash also saw a recent picture of him and noticed his glasses. She thought they looked good.

I second the "heartbreaker" - he's definitely one of those! That's a heck of a smile!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to Mr. N! I can't believe he's ten. That's crazy. That means Leah will be ten at the end of the year. I need a DDP stat.

Happy Birthday to Nate! Wow - he is getting old. And I know I've said this before, but I think he looks so much like Jake, too.
Miss you, Vaness - it looks like you're doing well, which is great.
And you know what I miss? Pump class! I loved those days...
Keep up the good work! :)

Marylynn said...

I love that picture of Nate. I haven't read blogs in awhile so I took a look at your pictures. I can't believe how long Katie's hair has gotten. I also love how you painted that thing(it's too late to think what it's called, but I know you know what I am talking about) in your front entrance. I tried to change my blog around but I'm so retard when it comes to things like that, I wish I lived close by so you could help me again.

Becky @ Our Sweet Peas said...

Aww, happy b-day to your big 10 year old!

pojeda said...

Just had to giggle about what your husband said! Yup! This sounds exactly like my son at that age! I was always asking him "What were you thinking!!!" LOL!
Happy Birthday!
And Mom, you will get through this! Honest!

Still laughing!

You know I think your kids are adorable. Ten years old. Oh my. He is handsome. Hugs to him and Happy Birthday...

dana said...

oh my gosh. He's seriously TOO cute.

Emily said...

He looks like such a sweetheart. And http://www.myubam.com/ecommerce/results.asp?sid=D3544&gid=85912944 these books came to mind when you said he is all about playing 'war'. These books are pretty incredible, and probably right on par with his age, so I just wanted to let you know!

forever folding laundry said...

He sounds like a great kid - and is obviously a handsome one. Definitely a keeper. :) Happy birthday to your big guy!
