Truman is happy to finally be 9. He tells me he hates having a late birthday because everyone always says, "you're still 8!?!" On the other hand, I'm very happy that he is still pretty young because a. he is still my baby b. he is very hugable and I love that he is not too big for my lap c. he is mature for his age, so there is no reason to grow up any faster than he is! Truman is my speedy guy. He runs the 800 meters in just 2.50 minutes. He is strong and tough, but very empathetic. He is a great friend and has many. We love you Truman.
