Happy 11th Birthday Dillon!

11 years ago on February 7, 1999 with tears of joy my husband and I welcomed our first child into this world. Dillon took his time coming into this world. He was born at 42 weeks 8 lbs 6 oz and 20 1/4 inches long. He came out shouting at everyone in the room. He was pink, plump, and just perfect. I was in awe.

Stephen and I were very young when Dillon was born. We really have grown up with him. It hasn't always been easy but we wouldn't change it for anything. We love him so much and we are so proud of him! He is one of the sweetest kid you will meet. He is always thoughtful of others. He is incredibly smart. He is very respectful. He loves his brothers SO much!

For Dillon's 11th birthday he had two small parties. The first with his grandparents, Aunt Gina, his brother and us. We watched his basketball game and then came home for cake and ice cream. This was the day before his birthday.

Aunt Gina bought trick candels!

We had no idea what to get him ( Or Brenden in April) for his birthady. The kids do not lack toys! They are pretty spoiled. So the whole family pitched in and bought them a combo gift. A big basketball goal. They loved it! ( Well they will..we are waiting for the HOA to approve it !)

On Dillon's actual birthday we woke up and went to church. After church we took him out for Itallian food ( his favorite). Then we came back to the house, played games and opened a couple more small gifts.

The next weekend was his party with his friends at school. We let him invite three friends to spend the night and go to see " The Lightning Thief". All of the kids were great at the movies. And it was a great movie too. After the movie we came back home for pizza and cake. : )

I think he had a pretty good birthday. It is crazy to think that I have an 11 year old! It seems like just yesterday that he was sitting on the floor sucking his thumb and driving his cars.
