Wordful Wednesday-Garrett Turns 9!

Wordful Wednesday 411: Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, except WITH words.  It’s for those of us that just cannot be wordless, no matter how much we try.  Add my Wordful Wednesday badge to your post (right side bar under “WW”) if you really want to make me happy, and then add your post link to the linky below. Easy peasy.

I blinked another time and #3 turned 9.  I swear to you, I can’t figure out where the 24 hours in each day goes!

Garrett turns 9

I don’t know what I did to deserve such a good kid, but he’s been the sweetest, kindest, most well behaved kid around since he was born.  I’m one lucky mama, that’s for sure.   He definitely resembles his dad in the looks department, but clearly he takes after me in the “what I want to do for my birthday” department because we spent the day eating at his favorite places to celebrate the day he entered the world.  🙂

  1. It sounds like he had a wonderful 9th birthday!

    It’s funny how time flies so quickly with kids. There are times I wonder how it seems like I’ve missed stuff even though I’ve been here the entire time.

  2. He looks so much more mature than 9! What a handsome boy.

  3. What a handsome boy.

  4. Happy birthday to your son! You’re right, they grow up way too fast.

  5. What a handsome young man he’s turning into! 🙂 Happy, happy birthday to your boy!

  6. Happy Birthday to your son. I feel like 9 is a turning point. They seem so much more grown up when they turn 9. All the best <3

  7. He is so handsome and such a gentleman! I can just tell! Happy birthday to your little man!

  8. 9 whole years?!? That’s more than I can even think about right now. I’m just coming to grips with the idea of 3. Seems so terribly close to 30 🙂

  9. Happy Birthday to your son!! Time flies!

  10. I’m right there with ya. Let me know if you figure it out. I’m trying not to blink. 😉

  11. Nine already?! Where’s the time going?! I keep trying not to blink, but it’s not working. Happy Birthday to you handsome little dude – who’s not so “little” any more! 🙂

  12. very handsome!!!!!

    We normally go out to eat to get STEAK… yes, my soon to be 4 year old always chooses steak 🙂

  13. The stuffed bear is cracking me up. As my kids age, we’re getting away from full-on parties (at least for the girls. I’ve yet to throw a proper party for the boy who is 3. I’m sure that this year he’ll be expecting something and you know what? I’m actually kind of interested.)

  14. Holy cow how cute is he? That smile is amazing. Happy B-day!

  15. Happy Birthday G!
    p.s. He has your smile, what a good-looking kid!

  16. Happy birthday to Garrett! What a handsome young man you have there!

  17. Place(s)? Was that plural? LOL. Lucky kid! My kids wouldn’t know what to do with themselves if they got to eat out twice in one day!

    He and Kate are the same age– I didn’t realize. He’s so cute.

  18. I dare say you will be beating the girls off of that one in a few years! He’s handsome! 🙂 (I mean that in a totally non creepy way, btw!!!) Happy Birthday to him. My oldest is coming up on 9- I can’t believe it!

  19. Happy Birthday to your handsome boy! Glad you all had a good time out celebrating. Since Mayhem’s birthday is 12/24 and she just turned 3, we haven’t really had to do anything special yet (she thinks all the Christmas celebrating is somehow about her birthday). We usually just do a simple dinner at home with close family. She has twin (girl) cousins 7 months younger than her so this year was a total blast watching the 3 of them play together.
