Cole is nine!

My precious Cole. You bring so much joy to my life!

I love your excitement for everything.

I love how you are always wanting to encourage others and help people.

I love how you know more trivia than anyone I know.

I love how you are getting all "Mat Hoffman" with your bike jumps ever since you watched a documentary on him. And I don't blame you that you like to keep the blood smears on your skin after you crash. You deserve that badge of honor.

I love how you are always telling me things are "overrated."
"Shoes are overrated."
"Vitamins are overrated."
"Washing fruit is overrated."
"Shirts are overrated."

I love that your birthday wish list includes things like bubble wrap and beef jerky.

And I love that Norman Regional Hospital cafeteria was a serious contender for you when trying to decide where you wanted to eat for your special birthday dinner (although I also love that it lost).

I think you are one of the coolest and most delightful kids ever. I hope you have a very happy 9th birthday. I love you.

You are so not overrated.
