Eight

I don't know how it happens, this swift passing of time.

One day he's small and snuggled in my arms, and the next, he's grown so big he can knock me down with his exuberant hugging if I don't brace my feet in a hurry. Still sweet as honey and growing more clever by the second, my baby boy, the one that scared us with his early, so-tiny entrance into the world, is officially eight years old today.
My sweet Boy, I love you to all the Super Mario Galaxies and back.
Happy You Day!

Is that pies instead of cake?

Happy birthday to your son. Every time I read posts of yours I think to myself those kids are well loved. Guess it always touches my heart because I didn't have that in my childhood. I can see you truly see your kids as blessings. Give yourself a pat on the back

Happiest Birthday Wishes to the Birthday Boy! Handsome guy you have there!

It will seem like just a moment and you'll be watching him graduate from high school!
