Lucky #7

Today, we celebrated seven years of this guy.

Feeling so blessed that we’ve been given the privilege of being his parents, and feeling so blessed that God thought enough of me to allow me to be his mom.
These seven years have both gone by in an instant and have passed as they should - day by day by day.  When I look into those bright blue eyes of his, I still see the my first born when we brought him home from the hospital, so much in love and in so much disbelief that he was mine.  I see the chubby-cheeked toddler who loved puzzles and the shy preschooler who cried and cried and cried on his first day of school.  I see the kindergartener who grew to love books, and the new seven-year-old who loves his sister fiercely.
I see all that was, and I see all that is yet to be.
Still so much a little boy, yet growing (and struggling and pushing and pulling) towards becoming a young man.
I see him.  I see my heart.
There was much to celebrate today, as Drew was kind enough to be willing to share his birthday with Ruby’s baptism.  So after celebrating Ruby at church this morning, we headed to Culver’s for Drew’s choice birthday lunch.

Cheeseburgers and custard, all around! {Grandma and Grandpa were here to celebrate with us, as they start out on their drive down to Florida for the month of February.}
Back home for gift opening…

…and then spent the afternoon breaking those gifts in.

We saved the singing and the cake for after dinner.

Happy, happy birthday, my man.  So, so proud of you.
