I remember thinking at 9 about how close I was to double-digits, which seemed really old.

How great to watch him becoming more confident in who he is.

Happy Birthday, L.!

Thanks, mouse--I think nine is memorable because it's so close to the double digits, you're right!

We're having a bit of a rocky day so far--birthdays are hard--L. is a control freak when it comes to the day, and he's mad that T. won't watch Star Wars: Clone Wars with him.

I love reading birth stories. What a scary way to arrive at the hospital, but thankfully what a happy ending.

It was tumultuous--especially for a first-time pregnancy!

My mom writes an acrostic poem with each grandkid's name when they turn nine. For whatever reason, she feels it's a really important year. A milestone.
Happy belated birthday to your L, I hope nine is a terrific year!

How sweet of your mom to do this...nine is big--there's just something special about it.
