Happy 15th Birthday Timo!
Today our second child and son was born 15 years ago! Wow! Where does the time go? Last year I posted the birth story so if you are interested look in my 2008 posts. Timo has weathered being the second child pretty good. He is not perfect, I know but I see him developing some maturity here and there, in things I did not as soon when I was a teenager. He is hardworking and competitive which helps him do well in most things but I am afraid he might be slacking a little this year since things have always come easy to him in school. We'll see. But I have many things that I am proud of him. He comes to me when he has a problem and confides in me, this is huge. Even if he thinks I am weird he trusts me! He takes pride in doing his best work, he is more of a perfectionist than me. He is responsible and dependable. He helps me when I am stressed. I appreciate his many talents but I enjoy him the most when he spends time with his younger siblings who look up to him so much. Happy Birthday Timo! I hope you know how much you are loved and appreciated!
