Happy Birthday to my Brendan! Crazy that this picture was 11 years ago! And I now am the mother of a teenager! Let the fun times begin! Brendan was quite a handful when he was this age. He could start a car and was always locking himself in the car. One time when I was about 9 months pregnant with Jess I could not find him anywhere. I started to really panic, I had the whole neighborhood looking for him. I finally found him in the neighbors car in their garage, he was just pretending to drive the car without a worry in the world. He loved anything with a motor and could make all the different motor sounds, like a car, grandpa's boat, a wave runner and a motorcycle! Each motor sound was quite different! He also was an escape artist- I remember we had to put special locks at the very top of all of our doors and gates outside. He loved being outside and still does. He is a little more mellow now and is usually a delight to have around. He is the man of the house when Rick is not around and is always willing to help me out when I need it. I love him and have had 13 beautiful and exciting years with him..he is a great son, and I am so lucky to have him! Happy Birthday Bren! I love ya..
