It's a Big Day for a 7 Year Old!

This kid was tickled pink to have pancakes with candles for breakfast today.

So happy to be 7! Thank goodness he changed his tune overnight. Last night he went to bed in tears because "he didn't want to turn 7 and grow up because he'd have to move out of the house." We assured him he could live with us for as long as he wanted to.

Dressed and ready for school in new clothes! (Honestly, those are brand new pants with the tag still on. Can't believe I paid money for pre-ripped pants.)

He gets a party on Friday at the roller skating rink. He can NOT wait! On a very regular basis he puts on Alyssa's pink, size WAY-too-big-for-Carter rollerblades and skates all around the house. I'm thinking there just might be a new pair of non pink, Carter sized rollerblades in his very near future. :)

I love this kid with every ounce of my being. He always knows when I need a hug or a snuggle or just a little back rub. He's happy and sweet and sour and rowdy and gentle and all things perfect boys should be. Happy Birthday Carter!!!

Happy Birthday Carter! Lucky he still has AT LEAST 10-12 years before he has to think about moving out. What a funny kid!

Awwww....what a cute 7 year old boy. I remember 7 years ago today when I got to see that fuzzy headed little boy for the first time. Wow, can't believe it has been that long.

I love how you called him sweet and sour! Boys are so fun in their own special way from our girls. They sure aren't in a hurry to grow up and become men! Thank goodness for that! Happy Birthday to Carter!
