Happy Birthday Justin

Happy Birthday Justin! I'm officially the mother of a 9 year old. Somehow that makes me feel OLD!! I guess not so much the age, but maybe the fact that his feet are bigger than mine, he is almost as tall as me, he has great conversation, etc... Justin is such an amazing boy. I'd love to take credit, but Justin is a product of his own making. He knows what he wants and goes after it. He is a master negotiator. He has told us he wants to be President someday, but only after he's been in every branch of the military. He loves to make money. When he found out that professional athletes make money, that is all he talks about. He wants to be a professional football player. He started out in the Gremlins league this year and immediately asked how much he was going to get paid. Justin is an amazing big brother. While pregnant with Ashton I often worried what kind of an effect having a new baby in the home would have on Justin. He has far exceeded my expectations and has become such a nurturing, loving, and kind brother. Justin is the first one to come running when he thinks something is wrong with Ashton. I'm so lucky to have such a great little helper. I love you Justin and hope this year is fantastic!!
