we celebrated his birthday with a party/sleepover this past saturday.
2. you devour every book that enters our home!
3. inspiring me to be a better person...
4. being our 'guinea pig' for the past 10 years! ;)
5. the way you have listened to me over the years, pouring my heart out about everything from life changes to a new knitting pattern...and acting interested for the most part, even if you weren't.
6. a friend to anyone & everyone.
7. always willing to help out your younger brothers & sister.
8. because you still try to squeeze your skinny *10 year old* butt in to the bathtub, even though your 3 siblings are already taking up all the room.
9. your unending thirst for knowledge.
10. because you were our first child, the one who welcomed us into the amazing world of parenthood!
we love you so much, orin...happy birthday!
