Double Digits, Baby!

© shoutingforha

Today, my boy turns ten.  It's hard for me to believe that we've reached the double digits milestone already.  Where have the years gone?

In honor of the redhead's St. Patrick's Day birth, I'm going to share just ten of the things I love about my boy.  In no particular order...

1.  His incredibly witty sense of humor.  The boy is a never-ending source of laughter in our home.
2.  His tender heart.
3.  The way he questions things.  I love that he doesn't just accept a fact at face value.  He wants to dig in and decide what he thinks about things for himself.
4.  His fierce and unwavering loyalty to his friends.
5.  The joy that he gets from playing drums.  How wonderful that, at such a young age, he has found something that he is truly passionate about.  I also love that music is something he and my hubby can share.
6.  His simple, childlike faith.
7.  The fact that he is incredibly sentimental.  It's a quality not seen in many ten-year-old boys.
8.  His feisty and fiery personality. 
9.  The way he stands up for what is right.  It's a trait that I've so admired in my hubby all these years, and I am thrilled to see manifest in my son as well.
10.  His red hair, freckled face, green eyes...  My boy is just plain adorable.  My heart brightens every time I see his face.

Happy Birthday to my amazing boy!  I am so very blessed to be his mom.
