Happy Birthday Nick!!!


        
       

Today is Nick's 16th Birthday!!!  (GASP....I can hardly even say that without passing out).  Nick is our first born and he was born very late on a Thursday night after an entire full day of labor.   Nick was a very beautiful baby with more dark hair than I have ever seen on a newborn.  Everywhere we went with him, people would stop us and comment on how much hair he had.  Nick has always loved sports.  We think he was born with a ball in his hand.  When he was a toddler, he would prefer to watch Sports Center over cartoons.  Nick was a bit of a "wild child" and was very daring.  He would try almost anything physical, much to my chagrin.  Nick loves Batman (yes, still)....  he has seen every movie of Batman ever made from the animated cartoon to the latest action film.  He had several Batman themed birthday parties over the years too.  Nick is a great boy and he does anything asked of him.  He loves food....especially a big breakfast....sausage, hashbrowns, eggs.....all of it.  I can't think of a favorite food really, because he has many favorites......just don't serve him anything with mayonnaise on it.  Nick is a little quiet and reserved until you know him well. He loves movies and the game of Monopoly, to which he owns several versions.  Nick is a good example to his younger siblings and helps them "toe the line". He does do his fair share of teasing, however....and because it's "Nicko", the other kids seem to put up with it just fine.  Nick played on both the high school Basketball team and Baseball team this year.  He is a good student and is always on the Honor Roll.  We love you Nick!!! We think you are GREAT in every way.  We hope your 16th Birthday is the BEST....and a day you'll never forget.
