Our big boy turns ten today on this beautifully sunny day in Portland! I can hardly believe a decade has passed since he came into this world. It seems like just yesterday I was cradling him in my arms and playing silly peekaboo games that would make him giggle, and now we are hanging out like pals at the music or game shop and talking like real men!
Along with Kelly, it has been such an honor to play an important role in helping him find his way in this crazy world. I know at times life has been quite challenging, and yet he has shown us over and over just how resilient and motivated he is to go after what he wants. Truthfully, he has taught us more about ourselves and life in the past decade than I could ever put into words.
To celebrate Trevor’s big day we are having all the extended family over for a nice dinner and will celebrate in our backyard, which just happens to be the image of the day! I took this not too long ago when the early morning sun was illuminating all the greenery that could use a bit of trimming. I am making a vegan spaghetti for dinner and his Gram, who was a pastry chef, has been baking up a mean vegan birthday cake! So it should be a fun evening.
Here is a picture of him in NYC on our last trip a couple of weeks ago. What a difference ten years makes!
Happy Birthday Trevor!
Love, mom and dad
