Can you believe...

...Scott is 18?!!? His birthday was the 13th, I'm just slow at posting this month. While I was in labor the nurses kept telling me that if I'd wait a couple of hours he'd be a Valentine baby. (easy for them to say!!)However, I knew that boys wouldn't want heart themed birthdays every year, so I spared him the pain of pink hearts and me the pain of waiting. Of course I didn't know he was a boy yet....but it all worked out-right?
He hates having his picture made, so I spared him that pain as well and used one from China. I still want to know what that shocked look was all about! His big plans for his birthday this year included a tattoo, but that hasn't happened yet and I'm waiting with bated breath to see what transpires.
Scott you are a son any parent would be proud of. You have a servant's heart, willing to help in almost any situation, you're giving and caring. You've carried the names of your grandfathers with an integrity that would make them proud! I love you and am praying for God's richest blessings in your life as you step into new experiences this year. I am excited to see what God has in store for you! I love you. Happy Birthday!

I agree---your Papa's would be proud. They were proud! And I think you're pretty neat myself. I did remember....just a little late. Happy 18th, Scott!!!

Isn't it special that the first thing these boys want to do the minute they turn 18 is to get a tatoo! My boys talk about it, my friend's boy did it! Is it just because of how I was raised that I think they're 'yucky'? I read some on the 'reverb' blog by the pastor that has the tatoos....he is definately reaching a group of people that not just anyone could reach!

I won't throw them out of the house if they get one, but I sure will be glad if they don't!
