Aiden turned 11 years old today. I kept looking at him and thinking... wow... how is it even possible that I have an eleven year old son?
I am so incredibly proud of my boy.
This year he chose not to have a birthday party with friends- instead he asked for a bigger birthday present. He wanted a Nintendo 3DS. So that is what he got. He was thrilled. In fact he was SO excited that he started waking up this morning at 4am. He wasn't too impressed that he had to go to school on his birthday either but apparently he had a really good day.
After school we went out for Pizza with family friends to celebrate Aiden and tonight he was so exhausted that he fell asleep within minutes of his head hitting the pillow. I think that counts as a successful first day as an 11 year old!
