Happy 7th B-day ChickenFried

I can’t believe it, but my little baby is now 7 years old.  Actually, I’m quite sure this is wrong.  Doesn’t that mean he’s 49 in dog years? 

He sure isn’t this little guy anymore.  He’s into shooting rockets on the roof just to watch BigD have to get the ladder and get them down.  He’s into kicking the soccer ball as far as he can.  He’s into hitting the baseball as far as he can.  He’s into watching the actual Superman and Spiderman and Iron Man movies and not the cartoons. 

He’s 7.  That’s the cusp of being a big kid.  The cusp of leaving little kid things behind, like sleeping with stuffed Garfield.

He has the wisdom of a 7 year old.  “Mom, just leave her alone.  She’s crabby.”  or, “Mom, if you’re already going outside you can just feed Scout.”  or “I’m going to give a birthday cookie to my principal.”

Yep – he’s our Little Big Man.  Happy Birthday Big Man.  We’ve loved you for 7+ years and we’ll love you for all the rest you can throw at us.
