"Uhm, hello there."
That was all I could muster. Nine years ago today, when I first met you.
Then somehow, along the way...
Barney turned into Transformers turned into Skylanders.
Hi-5 turned into Mickey Mouse Clubhouse turned into Adventure Time.
NickJr.com turned into CartoonNetwork.com turned into YouTube.com - supervised, mind you.
LEGO sets turned into more LEGO sets turned into OMG-it's-darn-expensive! LEGO sets.
Diapers turned into "I'm Done! Help me wipe!" turned into "Is there anything I can do? I'm bored in here."
Crying turned into whining turned into diplomatic negotiations that have left me speechless at times.
My baby turned into a toddler turned into the beginnings of a young man who will never cease to amaze me.
But you know what? You will also never cease to be this little guy in this video.
Happy 9th Birthday, son!
