Happy 9th Birthday Seth!

On December 10,1999 Seth FINALLY decided to join our family! He was quite content to take his time and was 13 days overdue. He had HUGE hands and feet and looked just like his Grandpa Gordon. I would like to say he was a good baby, but well, he wasn't! He was a Grumpy Gus until he was about 6 months old. Then I guess he figured out that it wasn't worth all the fuss (quite literally) and turned out to be the most easy going and happy kid I think I have ever seen!

This not-so-tiny-9 pound-1 ounce bouncing baby boy has turned out to be the most loving, gentle and eager to please boy. I couldn't ask for a better son! He loves to tease and is very affectionate. He always has a smooch and a squeeze, and always seems to know when I need them the most!

It has been so much fun to watch him grow and change. We have went from binkies and bottles to dump trucks and Bob the Builder to video games and rock stars! I wouldn't change one thing, except that I do miss putting him to bed with one binky and him waking up with another one that was hidden somewhere in his crib!

Here are some fun facts about Seth:

*When he was little, he would always swap a binky for the orange ones, I think they tasted better! He still likes orange!

*For a long time he wouldn't eat jam or any food that was pink, purple, or yellow. He said those were "girl" colors and food and he didn't want to turn into a girl!

*He plays the guitar and wants to be a rock star and own his dad's carnival when he grows up (this week anyway!).

*He loves to play Pokemon and has a pretty good card collection.

*He likes to snowboard and skateboard.

*He likes to play video games.

I am glad that he chose our family to be with forever! Happy Birthday Seth, we sure do love you Dude!
