My baby isn’t a baby anymore. He turned 14. He has a deep voice and that little mustache that young teen boys get. His feet have outgrown my flip-flops, and he’s just a hair shorter than me now.
His favorite thing in the world now is still coding new Sparta remixes and writing Yellowbross Animations episodes, and he still loves to play Minecraft. He still wants to work in computer programming and animation when he grows up (so he got a new big computer monitor for his present to support what he loves and wants to do as his career). His favorite foods are still pizza rolls, chicken nuggets, popcorn, and Dr. Pepper.
And he still melts this Mama’s heart when he says, “I love you, too, Mom!” Happy 14th birthday, Jake! Mama loves ya!
