11! Does this make you a tween? Happy birthday, kid. We are so proud of you!

You are maturing and growing up so fast. You are intelligent, quick witted and confidant. You love interesting facts and practical jokes. And scaring your mom.

You love animals. Furry animals, scaley animals, big animals, small animals. You especially love snakes and have been saving up to get one of your own. I’m impressed with how responsible you are with animals and careful when you care for them.

You’re an avid audiobook listener and an information sponge. You’re so creative and innovative. You even find interesting uses for painter’s tape. Ha.

We love you so much! Happy birthday, Joshua!
