Not sure how this happened but the oldest just became a teenager, amazing how time flies by.
It is hard for me to believe that the day has come - my oldest is a teenager - the big 13. I remember you as a sweet little babe - our first born. You have grown into a young man that we are so proud of - it is hard for me to find all the words that describe you and the love that we have for you.
When you find something you enjoy you put all your energy, focus and love into it.
You are a lover of all books and wish you could just buy them all, it is not uncommon for you to haul a backpack full of them, even on a very short trip. As a toddler you were never attached to a blanky, toy or anything else but were fine with some books. You fell in love with books at 2 months when your dad held up a puppy book and you could not take your eyes off of the pages - we have read to you ever since.
You love your brother deeply and always show care and concern for him.
You have high expectations of yourself and become frustrated when you cannot do as well as you wanted.
You have a deep passion for surfing and rock climbing, you are comfortable in the outdoors and have a connection with being out in nature.
If you have done something wrong you are sad and feel horrible about it, you also say something right away.
You are intense, sensitive, caring and show concern for others.
You love Jellyfish and do silly things like watch shark week or Jaws before going out in the ocean.
You have a deep wanting to move to New Zealand.
You love Legos, Star Wars, painting mini figures from Hobbit and Lord of the Rings.
You savor the opportunities you have to spend time with family and care deeply about doing everything with them.
You enjoy good yogurt, all fruits (mango, berries, bananas and pears - but never cantaloupe or honeydew).
You are an awesome passionate young man that we are so proud of. Congrats on becoming a teenager - although life can be tough and difficult we will always be here for you - to face the challenges with you - every step of the way.
Happy Birthday Dillon Seamus
Love Mom, Dad and Ro
