Dev is 16

Such a difference between the celebrations between my oldest two. Deven is so low key and gracious. He was happy with the decor, snacks, balloons and new video card. One year a couple years ago he told me how much he liked the tradition of decorating for birthdays. I go to the dollar store and load up on fun and silly toys, candy and decor so the kids can wake up the day of their birthday to a menagerie. That evening Deven wanted Cheesecake Factory for dinner. The Mac and Cheese hamburger.

Dev has grown so much this past year. He has changed from the boy I have known for so many years. He is aware, kind and so loving. It takes something...maybe faith, maybe trust, maybe not being a let your kids be who they want to be without some heavy handed guidance. Somewhere around the age of 13 you see that they are pretty much who they are. I have learned to love Deven very deeply for exactly who he is. He is a gift.
