His Golden Birthday

He is 7 on October 7...it is my sweet son's 7th birthday! I was thinking this morning that I couldn't believe I have had him in my life for seven years already. Seven years of his sweet smiles and warm hugs. Seven years of his stubborn determination (he is gonna be great in sales someday!). Seven years of his giggles and playfulness. Seven years of endless fights over food at the dinner table. Seven years of ALL BOY. We feel blessed that God has chosen us to be his parents.
This morning, I had a little quiet time with him before the bustle of the day and told him all these things...above all, I want him to know how much he is loved. How much we cherish each day with him. He leaned close to me and gave me a big hug. It was one of those moments you treasure as a parent. One I will never forget.


















Happy Birthday Big Boy!!

Enjoy him! Before you know it he will be a grown man with a family and you will miss that little 7 yr old dearly!

Oh gosh!!! I love all of these pix, especially the lipstick on the forehead and the crashed out on your bed. :)

He has not changed that much from his baby pix. I'd totally be able to match those pix with current ones.

Happy birthday! He is so cute and that pic of him in the tub was seriously so funny!

and the one of him jumping out of the crib...how old was he? My sweet 20 month old daughter has started gettting out of hers and I'm going "NNNNOOOOOOOOOO!!!" I want her caged in as long as possible!

He's a cutie!
