For Ernest's 12th birthday, I featured some photos of my Angel Baby. For the 13th, I wasn't sure what pictures to show: Ernest in superhero costumes? Ernest in embarassing positions? (I've got 3 pictures of him on the toilet. I'd better save those for some day when he's ticked me off.) Finally I decided to play it safe. Here's a series of some of his more recent birthdays.

2003, Age 7. The GameCube Birthday

2004, Age 8. The Big Party Birthday.

2005, Age 9. The Magic Show Birthday

2006, Age 10. The 3 Cake Birthday. He helped lick the bowl for the first one.

2007, Age 11, The Let's Have Ice Cream Tonight Because You're Having Cake Tomorrow Birthday.

2008, Age 12. The Guitar Hero Birthday.

2009, Age 13. The You Don't Have Any Presents Because You Didn't Tell Us What You What But Dad Is Taking You To Magic Mountain Tomorrow Birthday. *

*At the time I wrote this post, he didn't have any presents. He does now, but I didn't want to spoil my humorous blog entry.

So cute watching him grow up through those pictures!

By the way, I've created a new blog after deleting the half-baked one for personal reasons. It is only about Guiding though, it's so I'll understand if you don't want to follow me.

Yayyy!! This is just a GREAT month for birthdays among my blog friends! The 4th was my daughter;s... yesterday was Bunny's.. Cher and I have the SAME birthday this month (I am convinced it has something to do with us both being quite OCD, lol) and there is a Facebook friend or two with birthdays this month also. I LOVE the pictures and the crazy hair!!!!
