He's 7

There's something about the youngest child's birthday that makes it seem that time is moving at lightspeed. Tommy was way more excited to turn 7 today than I was. I would be very happy to freeze him right now. How much longer do I have of him still reaching for my hand when we are walking? Of him climbing into bed with us in the middle of the night? Of him curling on my lap when the movie gets too scary. Not many more of these moments I am guessing. I will take them for as long as I get them.

I fear this. Lil'Miss M was a baby when we started our adoption, but didn't get home until 5. Now at 7, I wonder how much longer I have to snuggle her up too.

He's precious. All of your children--so beautiful.

My youngest is almost 8, and he's still a good little snuggler. So, hopefully you'll have another year of more.


mama of many :)
