Happy 12th Birthday to my Middle.
You’ve made 12 years feel like 2. I can’t believe how fast it’s gone. And though you’re small for your age, you are a force to be reckoned with. Here are a few of your favorite things at 12 years old:
Basketball. Any time, any place. Doesn’t matter who with or if you just got done playing. Basketball is ALWAYS a good idea to you.
Watching YouTube Videos with Aidon
Red Robin Mac & Cheese
Shopping (especially for sports clothes)
iTunes Gift Cards (for Roblox)
Starbucks Caramel Macchiatos
Changing your Instagram Handle (which is currently JacksonTheAsian)
And here are some things you don’t love right now:
When Mom and Dad leave for the gym
Doing chores of any kind
And that’s really it. There’s not much that you don’t like right now and I’m okay with that. 🙂
And even though these aren’t major milestones like loosing a tooth or breaking a bone, this year you made the big switch from baths to showers. And was finally able to take Tylenol by swallowing a pill, rather than drinking the syrup. And the day you turned 12, I finally let you sit in the front seat. All that to say that you’re growing up right before our eyes.
Here are some pictures Uncle Andy took of you at your last basketball game with Rams Hoops.
Happy Birthday Jackson. You are loved beyond words and we couldn’t be prouder of you.
