Next Saturday, you will be 7.
I don’t know what to do with that.
Since you are my only baby, each year, I celebrate the getting older part ( read independence) but mourn the loss of the baby in you.
But I love how now, you are
- Into football
- Obsessed with your haircut
- as in love with reading as I am
- Are starting to act “funny” around girls..sometimes..
- More articulate in expressing your opinion. ( which sometimes gets you into trouble)
- willing to try new foods ( FINALLY)
- eating me out of house and home
- learning that not all friends are good friends
- still ok with a hug from me in front of your friends
I can’t wait to see what the next year brings.
