Happy Birthday Jake

It's my babies birthday.  He's not such a baby anymore.  Every time I look at him I think he has gotten bigger and seems older then he did the day before.  Watching kids grow up brings on so many emotions.  I love watching him learn and grow, but I also want to bottle up the innocent child I have and keep him this way forever!

I asked him what he wanted to do for his birthday.  He's been invited to a few parties - and I told him he could have a party with his friends if he wanted.  His reply to me was - "I just want to do something with my family - spend the day with you, dad and Sam."

So that is exactly what we did. Mike and I both took the day off. Went to lunch, went bowling, played with his presents, his new Legos, ate cake - whatever he wanted to do today he got. 

I've enjoyed every minute I've had with this boy.  He made me a mother - he turned me into who I am supposed to be.  I love this boy to death. 

On the way to school I told him I was going to interview him and asked him a few questions.  Here are his answers below.

He is an adorable boy!!! Yes it would be nice to bottle up that sweetness. My *baby* turns 15 in a month. While he still has his moments, I'm not loving the teenage hormones!!

So glad you enjoyed the day.
