15 Years of Birthdays

Yesterday (Sunday), we celebrated Wendell’s 15th birthday.  Last week, I looked through all of his past birthday pictures.  He was 4 weeks premature, 3 pounds 14 ounces, 16.5 inches.  Now, he is 118 pounds and 5’4″.

Several years back, I started making cupcakes for his birthday, who wants a kid spitting all over a birthday cake?  With Wendell, it is even worse because when he attempts to blow out the candles, his mouth can only be described as a snarl making a “shh, shh” sound, ergo, lots of spit.

This year however, due to breaking my foot (a future blog post), we went with a frozen custard cake.  He looks less than thrilled.

Opening presents was a very solemn event.  I’m not sure what he expects, but he never seems satisfied with what he receives; he barely looks at what he’s opened before moving to the next.  I think the anticipation of opening presents creates such anxiety that when it is over, he doesn’t know what to do.

Happy Birthday Wendell!
