DOUBLE DIGITS in July…. Davey is TEN





How in the world did we get to this point?!

How is my sweet, baby boy…

my first born…


This oldest boy of mine…

he’s pretty amazing.

He’s ridiculously smart.

(Principal’s list x4 last year?!)

And he’s funny.

And a little bit crazy.

He loves to read,

play board games,

play video games,

watch movies,

watch tv,

and spend time at home.

He’s more of an introvert than an extrovert.

He prefers to be at home.

He hates running errands.

Even if it’s to pick out legos for himself.

He prefers smaller groups of friends to large crowds.

He’s fun-loving and energetic.

He loves basketball.

But he chose soccer camp over basketball camp this summer.

He still loves to swim and dive for toys.

And he’s light enough that Daddy can still throw him pretty well.

He’s still on the smaller side of average.

He weighs in at 52.8 pounds (2.68%).

He’s 49.75 inches tall (2.87%).

His growth spurt will come.


He’s grown into a size 1 or 2 shoe.

He’s in a size 7 bottom and a 7/8 top.

This amazing kid of mine is about to be a FIFTH GRADER.


He’s going to play the clarinet in band.

(We’ll see how that goes – he seems to have my musical ability.)

This silly,










oldest Munchkin of mine LOVES being a big brother to a little brother.

Sometimes he loves being a big brother to his sisters.

He loves being part of our family.

This kid of mine,
he’s a thinker.
He doesn’t make decisions or choices easily.
He weighs all sides of every choice.
He takes his time.

He thinks things through.

And then he second guesses himself.
And he finally makes a choice.

But sometimes he changes his mind.

This kid of mine wears flip flops or lace-up sneakers.
There’s no in between.

He prefers to wear “Saturday clothes” (sports shorts)

but I’m the mom and won’t let him wear them to school daily.

He thinks all shirts that don’t have something on them are church shirts.
He won’t wear collared button-downs anymore.
I can’t reallly get him into a polo shirt anymore, either.

Just “nicer” t-shirts.

He wears shorts year-round.
There’s usually about a week of cold weather in January or February that requires pants,

but otherwise, it’s shorts ALL. THE. TIME.

This great kid loves to think.

He drive me crazy with his attention to detail.

And his memory.

He’d be an amazing lawyer –

he’d never forget a detail of a case and he’d catch the opposing witnesses in any lie.

He started doing some programming/coding this summer.

Not much, but a little.

This kid loves sugar.

Soda (favorites: Pepsi and Dr. Pepper).

Candy (favorites: Snickers, Twix, Kit Kat).

Treats and sweets (like: cookies, RK treats, ice cream).

But he’s a pretty good eater.

I think we fought the food battles when he was younger and it’s paid off….

he doesn’t complain about meals (unless he’s sick)

and he knows he needs to eat all of his dinner to get a treat.

He likes Thai food and Vietnamese food and Asian cuisine….

plus burgers and mac-n-cheese and PB&J.

This kid,

he made me a mom.

And I couldn’t be more thankful for him.

He came into this world a month earlier than expected

and he’s been a joy and a delight to our family ever since!

Happy 10th birthday,

my first-born son!

I am so thankful for you!

Love you bunches, Davey!
