Can you believe Quinn is 13 years old? When I first started this post, it was gonna say something like, can you believe I am the mom of a teenager. But then I realized, that this post needs to be about Quinn...not me.

So....HE'S THIRTEEN!! OMG! The time has flown by and I am amazed at how much he has changed in a lot of ways and how much he has stayed the same in others.

The physical changes are obvious...voice, height, mustache, etc. etc.
The personality changes are a little more subtle...independent, absent-minded (I think that is because of the hormones), etc. etc.

But he has remained to be the same sweet, loving, analytical boy that he always has been. I love that about him. I love that he still gives me hugs in public. He isn't embarrassed by me (not yet, anyways). He takes care of his sister with so much protectiveness...even when she walks all over him. More and more, I see the man that he is going to be. I sometimes see Tony when I look at him. They are certainly two peas in a pod.

So, in honor of him turning 13, here is a list of Thirteen Random Facts about Quinn.

1. Favorite Movie: iRobot
2. Favorite Food: Olive Garden Mac&Cheese and Breadsticks
3. Favorite Color: Gold
4. Favorite Song: Puttin' on the Ritz
5. Favorite Musical Artist/Group: Breaking Benjamin
6. Favorite School Subject: Band
7. Favorite Book: I Am Number Four
8. Favorite Video Game: Halo Reach
9. What he does in his spare time: Watch TV, play video games on PS3, Xbox 360 and his iTouch
10. Best Friends: Hunter, David, Steven and John Mark
11. What he wants to be when he grows up: Gun and Car Fabricator
12. Who he admires most and why: "I admire Dad the most. Cause he has gone through all the same stuff I have and he knows where I am coming from and most of what I say. He understands me."
13. The thing he likes most about himself: "My personality."

Quinn, I love you very much. And I am so very proud of who you are.
