You love Legos.
You hate having your picture taken.
You are still a grumpy, moody, emotionally charged kid… but I do think you’re learning to control it more, which is a good thing (for all of us!).
You continue to love video games.
You let your little sister beat you up every now and then.
You like to read. (Diary of a Wimpy Kid is your current favorite, even though you’re reading Twilight here.)
You always need a haircut.
You love my iPod.
You are the pickiest eater on the planet.
You miss your friends and your school in Maryland.
You believe in Santa (or at least you SAY that you do!).
You love to play in the snow.
You adore your sister, but only when you think no one’s looking!
You don’t look a thing like that newborn boy I held in my arms for the first time 9 years ago…
and I couldn’t love you more if I tried.
Happy Ninth Birthday, Damon.
