My 'baby' is 16 today!

My son was born June 12, 1990 at 1:37 in the morning. He is the coolest 16-year-old on Earth. He still enjoys my company, but he has his own life, too. Really into anything military, guns (we don't keep real ones around here, btw) and the video game Halo 2. The kid lives and breathes Halo 2. I bought him a gigunza (I mean, this thing must hold a gallon) glass mug with a Halo logo on the side. He's also getting the graphic novel and a book of Halo 2 art. I gave him 3 movies, and we went to see X-Men III today. Just me and him--it was great. I like the X-men movies! In fact, I've made it a point to know about the characters and stories in all the games my kids have played and the movies they have seen. It can open up a great conversation when you ask a kid, "so, is Juggernaut a good guy or a bad guy?" (For the record, a bad guy. A big, dumb bad guy.) He's interested in girls but no one in particular so far. Any girl that gets him will be lucky, because he's funny and sweet. Everyone should have his sense of humor. The world would be a better place.

Happy Birthday to him! (Sting My Heart's son just had a birthday too.)

It is so great to hear your love and joy for you child.

I can't imagine my little guy growing up and becoming a teenager.

I just posted my Tackle It Tuesday - hope you are playing this week :)
