Another Birthday Boy
My little Joshy is not so little anymore....man time flies. Josh will be 14 tomorrow. He was the sweetest baby..just so full of love and smiles. He loved his mommy and didn't really discover how fun his dad was until he was about a year old. He talked early (full sentences by 18 months) and walked early (took his first steps just before he was 9 months). He has always been into computers, from the time his Grandad got our family one when he was just four years old. He also LOVES video games!! Out of all of my kids he is the messiest one..by far! This picture of him with ice cream all over his mouth was taken when he was around 8 years old!! I think he still gets ice cream all over his face when he eats it. One of his weaknesses is that he is always trying to be the dad...I wonder how many times we have said "Josh, you're not the dad."....He has this strange NEED to be the enforcer of rules. I remember when he was younger he got so upset because I let Matthew play a game for ages 5 and up when he was only 4! Someone call the rule police! He is the child I would always find in the bathroom making "potions" with anything he could find in there. He is a friend to all and I'm often told by other kid's moms that he is a very nice and good boy. He loves baseball and is an awesome catcher. He is extremely smart but very lazy! That boy gets good grades but for the life of me I don't know how...he is never studying. He often comes home to tell me he did his homework on the bus. He has been the biggest help with the little ones. He loves babies and he'll even change diapers and give baths. He's just a good kid and I love him so much. Happy Birthday Josh.
