Check out this incredible kid......
His name is Elijah Root. And I love him more than words can say.
He turned 8 this year. I have known this sweet boy for 8 wonderful years. And I cannot believe how old I am getting.
I still remember the night he was born.....
I was in Florida on a business trip. I had just gotten my first cell phone (but this was before the amazing invention of texting)... and I would call my Mom every 30 minutes to get updates on his arrival. Except for that we had no idea if Kristen was having a boy or a girl.... so the anticipation was tremendous.
And I ate a LOT of ice cream and doughnuts that night to calm my nerves.
Because as Kev always tells me..... Boys rule and girls drool. And the last thing I wanted was to have to deal with a lot of drool.
But those calories were worth every bulge on my figure.... because he is such a joy and pleasure (and drool free) . And have I mentioned SMART. Because he is so smart that he has done our taxes for the past two years. And teaches my Dad's math classes. And created the fountain of youth serum that he apparently only shares with Kev.
This kid is going to go places.... if you know what I mean. And you better believe that I'm going to tell every one that I know that I'm related to him.
Because I will be so proud. And not because I need constant attention.
Elijah Root Valter..... HAPPY 8TH BIRTHDAY!!! We love you SO much!
