Alex's 12th B-day
Wow- Alex is 12! He has grown so much this year that he is almost as tall as I am. Alex has also grown in other ways; I notice him using initiative more often, he is thoughtful, he plans out what he wants and how to get it, he is very caring with younger kids... My boy is growing up, thankfully he is still a kid, but I do see glimpses of the man he will become.
We absolutely shocked him by giving him a crisp 100 dollar bill. He was completely blown away! I thought he would spend it all on one big thing, but instead he had a hard time choosing what to get. He ended up getting several things.
Alex was quite happy with his gifts. He has enjoyed every single one.
