In the Blink of an Eye

13 years ago, a baby boy was born.  

He was born in a family that already had a little girl. They would have another little girl 2 years after he was born. He is the only boy in his family, which sometimes is frustrating to him. 
"No, your baby brother is not a doll, and you can not dress him up!" (his sister did  once dress up him as a princess when he was about 3.  I knew he would never forgive me if I posted that picture.  LOL!)  

He found his love for dinosaurs quite early.  He was a dinosaur for his 1st Halloween when he was 6 months old.  

He helped in the kitchen quite early.  Here he is  unloading all of his baby spoons onto the floor.  At least  he wanted to help with the dishes! At 13, he may like to cook, but he doesn't like doing dishes.  

There was a time when he would actually dress up without complaining. I loved his "little man" look.  This was his first Easter.  

These are some of his actual first steps.  

Those little feet liked to tap and hip hop for a time.  

His first day of 4 yr preschool.  If only school was as fun as preschool now. He is just about to finish 7th grade. In another year he will go to High School.  How did that happen?    He went from 1, 2,3s and A,B, Cs to taking high school level Algebra this year.  

I always loved this picture of him because it shows pure joy.  It was back in the days when he would actually smile for the camera.   

In just a blink of an eye, my little man became a young man.  That 8 lb baby is now taller than his mom.  Those tiny feet are now in men's size shoes and he is starting to wear men's size clothing.  How did 13 years fly by so quickly?  

Happy 13th Birthday Kyle!  

May the next 13 years not fly by!!
