He's Fourteen...

and drives me crazy every. single. day. I have whiplash from the emotional roller coaster ride,
but I wouldn't want it any other way.
He's funny, smart, kind and compasionate.
His creativity astounds me.
He's constantly teaches us new things.
I could go on and tell you about how his room is messy and how he hates to brush his teeth. How he could sit in front of the television the entire day, if I let him...oh I could go on, but I won't because he's your typical teenager!
Happy Birthday Matt!
We love you!

It must be so hard to be this age. On the one hand, you want to be grown up, on the other, you still like things like Despicable Me and not brushing your teeth. Maybe we should treat 'em like crazy people... and stay away as much as possible, hahahaha! Oh well. Guess that would work either. Happy Birthday to Matt!

Wow that is a great shot! How on earth did you get that? My older ones run away when they see me get any where near them with a camera. Happy Birthday to your fella!

I'm in a phase now where I think my baby (the big one) is growing up too fast. And it's so good to come here and realize that I'm being an idiot. To see the love you have for your (big) boys. And how young they still are (but don't let them read that). Thank you! And happy birthday to your big (-ish) guy!
