Today our first baby, Toby, turns 13. I’m a teenager! What time is it? Here are 13 countless reasons why we adore him…
1. He stole my heart from the beginning.
2. He is a master nap, and like a puppy he sometimes asks me to sit at his feet and read a book.
3. He is always on adventures.
4. He had a pleasant talk at dinner and recently ordered “pizza to the table.” *waving in a circle*
5. Being the oldest, he is very kind to all his younger cousins.
6. And somehow twins with the second son.
7. He is the ultimate city boy.
8. But you can also relax with the best.
9. He is good card game opponent. Just don’t expect him to win.
10. He’s cute even when he’s grumpy (especially?).
11. He is very cheerful on the phone.
12. He’s brave in many ways, including when he’s getting a haircut.
13. And he’s the ultimate fan! He regularly rides the Jumbotron at games, and we joke he’s the hype man at home too. He will walk into the room and say, “Who’s looking forward to dinner????”
We love you dearly, Toves!!!!!! We are so lucky. plus, I will post some more pictures on Instagram.
