Looking at him now, we marvel at how he has grown. This 10 year old bundle of energy has never-ending stories to tell and countless questions to ask. The only time he can be in one place seemingly quiet, is when he is glued to the tv or when he is busy with a game on an iPad. Yet, even then, we could hear his soliloquy, sound effects and sporadic outbursts when he reacts to his virtual opponents. He can't be silenced for long periods. He is a motormouth in the car, in the shower (he sings too) or practically anywhere... LOL.
