The Boy Turns 7

The Boy...

Seven years ago today my first born entered the world. Early. Going on two months early. He was small but strong. Very strong. He was stubborn, that boy. He just wanted out. He needed more space to be the spry creature that he is to this day. I always knew I would have my hands full. And I have been proven correct.

The Boy is everything a boy should be. He is loud. Spirited. Tenacious. Macho. Prideful. He is a protector. A defender. Cool. Funny. Creative. Serious. Silly. Loving.

He has brought a richness to my life that I didn't think possible. He keeps me on my toes. He makes me proud. He taught me to be a Mommy. I love that boy something awful.

Happy Birthday Eli. You rock.
