Happy Birthday To Our Pi Boy!

Another birthday brings the teenager count in the house up to five.  Yes, five.  Prayers for sanity accepted!
Having five teens makes some things extra funny, such as a quote from the movie Big Hero 6:
"Your hormone and neurotransmitter levels indicate that you are experiencing mood swings, common in adolescence. Diagnosis: puberty."
Patrick was born on Pi Day, a fact that escaped me during the throes of giving birth to my ten-pound linebacker (now turned tall-and-thin basketball player).  But hey, I was thinking about the circumference of his head, not the circumference of a circle!  And before you feel too sorry for me, I will give you all a big sigh of relief and let you know he was delivered via C-section. 
Like all our boys, Patrick is named after a famous baseball player--his middle name is Gehrig.  If I had been smart enough to know he was born on Pi Day, I would have named him Patrick Ichiro. 
But regardless, he is here, he is not named after Pi Day (and does not even like pie), but he is awesome, he has an hysterically wry sense of humor, is a walking dictionary, caring, loving, and passionate about life.  He wants to become a lawyer when he grows up, and based on his current negotiating skills, he will be very successful!

Love you so much Patrick!  Welcome to the Teenager Club!
