I can’t believe you are 7 years old today, this very minute! It seems like just yesterday I was holding a 5 pound sweet baby boy in my arms! And today, you are such an awesome blessing to our family. You’re a wonderful brother and just an awesome dude in general.

You’re laugh is contagious, and I love that even at 7 years old you’re still willing to cuddle with your mama. I’m so thankful that God has blessed us with your presence, I can’t imagine a more perfect fit for our family.

My favorite gift for you this year was the book your big sister gave you. “The Story of You”….she read it to you after everyone left and I have to say that I had a tear in my eye. She commended you for being the best brother ever and talked about how great you are at everything you do! And she’s right!


We couldn’t love you more!

And don’t worry sweet baby, despite what your daddy says, you’re welcome to live with us forever ;o)

Love your Mama.

P.S. Yes, I did make your cake…yes it did take awhile…and yes it was fairly complicated…and no, you can’t have a Star Wars Lego Ship cake next year.


  1. So sweet! Our oldest child a girl just turned 7 last month:-) Had to laugh at your comment on living with you forever. Mommas and their boys. My middle boy turned 5 last month and I love I can always get a good cuddle from him. They grow so fast! Hope you all enjoyed your day of celebration. Children a gift from the Lord!

  2. Happy birthday to your sweet boy! Amazing how fast they grow. You did a great job on that cake – awesome.I was a little awed at the 5 pound baby…so tiny! So far, my smallest, yes, smallest, was 8 pound 3 oz…
