My sweet baby boy, today you turn SEVEN!! It's hard to believe you are getting so big! This has been such a good year for you. You have grown so much in so many ways. I have loved watching you thrive in school this year. You have grown in leaps and bounds both academically and emotionally. I have loved watching you pour through books and share the exciting things you are reading with me. I hope that your thirst for knowledge never fades! I promise to always buy books for you as long as you want to read them! I have loved answering your questions about the Bible this year as you re-read the stories for yourself and start to really comprehend what it's all about. I love your never-ending questions about everything, even when I don't always have an answer. I have loved watching you in Karate this year. You are learning so much there, too. You are learning self control and discipline and I see you working so hard to meet your goals! I know this year is going to be a big year for you as you keep moving forward. You make me laugh constantly, you make me stop and think, sometimes you drive me crazy, but you always always make me proud to be your mom! I can't wait to celebrate your birthday with you again tonight at dinner and again on Sunday at your party!! Happy birthday my little monkey! I hope being 7 will be the BEST year yet!!
