We always measure the kids on their birthdays. Peter grew almost three inches this year which puts him at 5'10" - officially an inch taller than his short daddy! And about 5 inches taller than his even shorter momma!
On his 13th birthday he had grown a whopping 5 inches so thankfully for the clothing budget he has slowed down a bit.
I broke down and got Peter a phone for his birthday. I was trying to wait until the start of 9th grade but there are many situations in which I find myself thinking, "I wish Peter had a phone."
And now that his birthday is over, I have absolute no idea what to get him for Christmas. None! So if anyone has any thoughts on what to get a 14 year old who enjoys Iron Maiden music, computer games, and solitude, please let me know.
Here are a few pictures of my birthday boy! Although, in this picture he looks more my birthday man-child.
