Grown-up Austin, 2011
Happy TENTH Birthday! It's been a good year for you so far, I mean besides this and the other time where you almost bled to death from a toenail (claw) cutting session gone awry (your father's fault). The 765,408 bloody pawprint stains on our carpet are a nice complement to the vomit stains, however. Adds character.
This year you're going to be a big brother. In fact you were the first
Tonight, we celebrate you. I'll even let you drink out of the toilet as much as you please.
