Aaaaaahhhhhh, this kid:
(Yeah, the one on the left, cracking up.)
Still my baby, even though he’s technically 13 today and (therefore) officially a teenager.
Still our joy, always making us laugh when we most need it.
Still our “happy kid” (did I mention that his dad wanted his middle name to be “Happy”? Woulda worked!).
Still that crazy kid who has a cool combination of being very laid back and very off-the-wall at the same time.
Still the smallest one in the class, though he’s shot up at least two inches just this fall alone! (Go Nate!)
Still our Nate the Great.
Happy Birthday, Baby!
Happy birthday to my boy!
You are absolutely a joy! If I weren’t related to you I’d want to be in your circle of friends. You are cool, fun, funny, kind and good all at once…and you make it look so easy! It ain’t!
I couldn’t be more proud of you, son!
Happy late birthday to Nate!!
