Today we celebrate the big brother in our house.
Yet here we are, in the blink of an eye, four years later and three siblings closer to his (still) dream number of "five brothers and five sisters."
|yes, please notice the squishy frog in his pocket. i find that crazy thing everywhere.|
And seven seems so much older than six...so I'm thankful for the goofy faces he's still asking me to take. One day that will stop and if I just happen to catch on on the camera, he'll ask me to delete it.
Happy birthday to my oldest son. You're still lighting fast and quite impulsive ~ a combination that I suspect will bring you trouble from time to time ~ but you're an awful lot of fun to have around as I can rarely guess what you will say or do next. In the past year you've gone from nonsense jokes to developing quite a wicked sense of humor. I love watching you create dirt tracks for your Hot Wheels in the backyard with your little brother, playing imaginative 'adventure' games with your sisters, and reaching out a hand to help your new mei mei do something she hasn't tried before. You often march to the beat of your own drum, but your tender heart is going to make you one heck of a catch one day.
You my son, are adored. We love you to China and back a thousand times!
