WW- Older And Taller

This morning as I still wore sleep all over my face you came and snuggled up next to me on the couch, barely able to stay still enough not to spill my coffee.  Your excitement was palpable. 

"Happy Birthday big boy!"  I said to you as I kissed the top of your head.

"Thanks!"  you replied smiling proudly up at me. 

"So, do you feel any older?"  I joked with you.

"Yeah, I do.  And I feel taller too!"  you said seriously.

Ahh, the magic of birthdays when you are seven. 

Happy birthday my dearest Tommy!  I hope all your wishes come true!  I love you!

I love his birthday cake! We did something very similar for my son last year and he loved it. Hope it is a happy, happy day for Tommy!

Kat said...

Wisconsin Girl- Thank you! I finally got to get back to making my kids cake like I used to. The last few years my boys wanted brownies instead of cake and then my youngest boy wanted a store bought cake. I like being able to make the cakes myself and Tommy LOVED it. :)

Many happy returns to your boy! He looks like a sweet kid.

Awe, so so sweet. My little boy is 16. He wouldn't let me kiss him on the head even if i was tall enough to do so.....LOL

And, the fact of the matter is that as quickly as kids do grow, he just may be a teensy bit taller now too! Happy Birthday, Tommy!

Happy (belated) birthday, Tommy! I bet it was great!

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
