Happy 16th birthday, Davin Boy! I can not even believe it has been sixteen years since you entered my world!!
I was going to share some of my story of Davin's life and the struggles we have gone through together, but I think that is better left for another day. Today is his big 16th birthday and I am celebrating Davin today!!! I will share 16 things about Davin.
1. Davin has very flirty blue eyes.(He knows how to use them. I can remember when he was as young as 7 months old and he was batting his eyes at someone:)
2. Davin is the baby in our family and we do not let him forget that. Okay, well, I don't, anyway.
3. Davin has a wheelchair that is black and has sparkles in the paint.
4. Davin is in grade 9-2. He gets to stay in each high school grade for two years if we want him to. I don't see any reason not to.
5. Davin has a great sense of humor.
6. Davin sleeps with our puppy Rocky every night. Rocky sleeps right on his legs, but it doesn't seem to bother him.
7. When Davin was born, they immediately said that he looked just like his Daddy.
8. Davin adores his Daddy and his brother Cheney and wants to be just like them.
9. He also adores his sisters Ashleigh and Bethany and they have always taken excellent care of him.
10. He has a one-on-one aide at school and I have always thought he feels badly for the kids who don't have one. Maybe they are just not special enough or cute enough???? (I think that is what he may be thinking)
11. Davin has been flipped upside down in his wheelchair at least three times. Once on a playground, once in a ditch and once on the Awana circle.
12. He models patience for me constantly.
13. Davin is very social and loves to be around the action. You can not do anything without him knowing it, because he is always watching.
14. Davin LOVES to eat and he really LOVES to eat sweets!
15. Davin rides a yellow bus to school and he much prefers that over his mother taking him.
16. I am not sure what my life would look like without this boy. He has changed who I am in so many ways and I have learned so much from growing with him.
It's going to be a great day!
Cheney had some to add even though it makes more than 16:)
17. Davin LOVES to be naked. He also likes me to make a big deal about how he is naked and I don't want any naked boys in my living room.
18. Every day is his birthday. Whenever anyone is singing happy birthday, Davin is grinning from ear to ear like it is for him.
19. Most every day is the "best day of Davin's life" AGAIN!!
Good job, Cheney. You know your brother well.
