My little Tater-bug...
... is growing.

Seems like just last summer he was like this...
... loving his quad-runner and driving all over the beach.

Watching the waves with Gramma...
... and probably hearing them for the first time,
with his brand new Hearry Maids.

 He's fascinated by history and science.

Loves animals.  Especially Podger.

And look how grown up he's getting!
And that dimple!

I love it :D

He is my hardest worker.  Diligent.  Persistent.  And self-motivated.

Reads his Bible every morning, without me reminding him.

And full to absolutely overflowing with good ideas and plans.

And although I'm only supposed to call him Tate in public,
he'll always be my sweet little Tater-tot,
or my Tater-bug.

Happy Birthday!
