Turning Seven

Yesterday was my boy's birthday and he turned seven!  I seriously cannot believe that my baby is that old.  It is going way too fast.  I want my squishy toddler back.  Not that I don't love watching him grow up, but man, I miss him being little.  He is getting so big and changing so much but it's fun seeing him turn into a big boy.  I was telling him yesterday how I didn't want him to be seven because I want him to stay little so he can sit in my lap and cuddle me and he told me, don't worry mom, I'm not even 10 yet.  So at least I've got a few more years in his mind at least. :)  He is still the sweetest, cutest, smartest little boy I've ever met and even though I keep teasing him about growing into a big stinky man (he hates when I say that) I am proud of the boy he's becoming and can't wait to see the man he will become some day.  I took some photos of him yesterday on his birthday and I wanted to share them.  We did a bunch of fun things as well, but I'm gonna blog them in a separate post.  Oh, and I did the same little survey I did with him last year on his birthday.  You can check out his answers from when he turned six here.  It's fun to see what changed and what didn't.

I love this photo. I love his little smirk. It's so him. I took these photos in the courtyard of our condo building. Condo living is definitely different, but they do have some awesome landscaping that we don't have to take care of...I do like that perk.

My cutie sitting by the fountain. His hair is so long! He wouldn't let me cut it before me moved because he kept saying that if we are moving to the beach he needed to keep his beach hair. Then once we got here he kept saying I couldn't cut it until after his birthday. So guess what I'm gonna do today?

Always jumping. :)

This is his super fake smile, but I still think it's cute.

Have I mentioned we live in a tropical paradise?  It's funny how different these feel than our usual birthday pictures.  It still kinda feels like we are on vacation!

A much more real smile. There was a huge clap of thunder as I was taking these photos (we were only outside for less than 5 minutes) and so we finished up really quickly and he totally cooperated at that point! :) The storms here are crazy and they come and go so quickly. And we also live in the lightning capital of the world (or the US or the state...not sure which). The lightning here is crazy cool.

Seven. He's so happy.

Check back soon and I promise to post about all his birthday fun!
