And Then He Was Seven.

Just like that, our little dude is seven...

He chose a space themed birthday, which just happened to be on the same day as the eclipse, and now he is completely convinced that the eclipse happened just for him. Haha!

Our baby J is still a tiny little guy, just barely out of size 5T clothes. He loves his sisters more than anything in the world, and he just wants to play always and forever. He loves pirates, cars, and babies, and he has been asking for a baby brother for the past two years.

We love this little guy, and we can't wait to see what the next year brings him!

Happy seventh, baby J!

Friday Phone Dump...

She still gets headaches... poor sweet girl.

Home Depot shoppers.

Waking up is hard to do...

She's such a good little mommy...

Doesn't everyone have shelves full of medical supplies in their bedroom?

Our big girl is in a commercial for Children's hospital!

Hair and makeup done for her shoot.

Mad baby. She just realized that her big sister stays up later than her.

Happiness is a donut the size of your head.

Little reader...

Hanging out by the water... Someone saw them admiring his boat, and invited them aboard for a tour. It made our boy's day.

He loves him some water...

My loves...

He makes her laugh...

She found some tomatoes, and fell in love. We brought them home, even though she doesn't like tomatoes...because she is the cutest.

She made me a birthday necklace...

Laying down in this house is a hazard...tiny P will be there in a hot second, haha.

Seven Whole Years...

Seven years ago today we were handed a tiny, scared two year old... we became a family of three that day. This girl has been our girl for seven years today! She brings joy and laughter into our lives every day, and I can't imagine our lives without her.

Happy family day, little M!

Do all the good you can,
by all the means you can,
in all the ways you can,
in all the places you can,
at all the times you can,
to all the people you can,
as long as you ever can.
