I have another teenager now!


I can't really believe it, but it is true. Today is Valiant's 13th birthday! I can't believe how the time has flown. It seems like just yesterday that he was my beautiful little baby and now he's (as he tells me) "a Man". (Wasn't he just the prettiest baby?) We feel so proud and blessed that Valiant is our son. He's strong and caring, he's honorable and philosophical. He already tries to live his life in a mindful manner. He's creative and funny, keeping us in stitches most of the time. He's always stretching and growing in ways that surprise us. He adores his little sister and his older brother and tries to be there for them in any way he can.

Happy Birthday, Valiant! We love you and think you're amazing!

Happy Birthday Valiant! Hey! It is almost noon. You have been a man for almost two hours. How does it feel?

Awe! He was such a cute baby! I bet he's thrilled that you posted his baby picture on the internet for all of his soon-to-be girlfriends to accidentally come across ;).

Happy Birthday Valiant!

Don't you hate when women do that? He's so cute. Happy Birthday! Enjoy the teen years. They can be so much fun! Oh and for Valiant too Erin. LOL

Oops...I typed it incorrectly:

P.S. We obviously cannot let the kids meet for a few more years! (Did I mention I'll have an 18-year old at the end of the month?)
