Eleven years ago today ...

... this little guy changed my life forever.

I can hardly believe he's eleven. He has grown into such a fine young man: caring, compassionate, wise, and funny. He's the boy you can count on to make sure a shy child feels welcome. Little kids love him. Big kids think he's pretty awesome for a little kid. He is a complete joy to be around ... well, 99% of the time.

He can do an amazing Steve Irwin impression and eat copious amounts of Jell-O in one sitting.

In fact, he asked for Jell-O for his "birthday cake" this year.

His knowledge of varied subjects such as Minecraft, big cats, domestic cats, Legos, Mac keyboard shortcuts, time travel, plane crashes, helping-Mom-understand-her-cellphone, and the Guardians of Ga'hoole is encyclopedic.

He delights in the absurd much to my delight.

He was the best early birthday present I've ever received.

Happy 11th birthday, O!!!
