Right now, turning seven years old, your birthday is about presents, cake, and fun times with family and friends, and oh yeah, more presents!
For your parents, grandparents, and close grown-up friends your birthday is MOST importantly about celebrating all the little and big steps to this day, your 7th birthday! It is day of reflection on your precious face and all those beautiful features that have grown from preemie, to baby, to boy. It is noting that you have grown from 14 inches long to 47 inches tall and that tomorrow you will be a fraction taller still. It is remembering every bottle, feeding, and meal between 1 pound 15 oz and 48 pounds. Its looking in those eyes and knowing those eyes are the very same eyes that opened to me for the first time seven years ago and the see the world so beautifully and have changed the way I see it.

Your birthday is a day for you and its significance is marked as it should be with birthday booty, bounce houses or, by playing pinball all day with your closest friends! For Momma and Dadda it's celebrating you growing and being blessed a million times over to be a part of it. Happy Birthday Eric. We love you.
