Today he is 16.

Today our son Richard is 16. I can't believe it. He was born on a Tuesday evening and was by far one of the most beautiful babies I have ever seen and I have seen some in my time!

Richie is the child in our mix who is very tender-hearted. He jumps right in and helps out and LOVES to work with his hands. He loves to cook and is wonderful with children. Not only that..........he loves to ROCK OUT!! I love this kid!

I think the thing about him the endears him to me the most is that he truly loves his family. He is never afraid to show his affection for his siblings or his parents in front of his friends.

Here is a picture of him going with Dave to run a few errands. Yep, he's not too old to ride on the back of his dad's bike. NOT too many 16 year old boys like to hang out with their dad NO MATTER WHAT!

Happy Birthday Richie. You mean more to us than you will ever know and we are soo very proud of you.
