Today you turn ELEVEN! So I guess that makes you an official "tween?" I was talking to Tracey the other day and I said, "he just doesn't act like a tween, you know?" And maybe all that angst and teen stuff is still to come, but I can honestly say you are a dream. 

You know what trips mommy out?

You don't have much time left in elementary school.

You do so very well in school, so I'm sure Junior High won't be a problem for you.

But it will be a problem for me.

So your tenth year of life was pretty awesome, wasn't it?

A new house, straight A honor roll, baseball, running, friends...

But most important, your decision to accept Christ and follow in baptism.

Do you know sometimes I still watch you sleep?

And sometimes I will see a glimpse of you when you were a baby.

Eleven years ago when you came along I thought you would be a baby forever

Funny how quick it goes.

But let me tell you something

If I could have custom ordered a son, I would have ordered one just like you.

I always wondered what you would be like at this age, and you are so much more than I could have dreamt of.

I just want you to know how much I appreciate you.

And that I love you, for just being you.

I have no idea what I did to deserve you, but I'm so glad God gave me you.

Love, Mommy.
