I know that it’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve been here. A lot has happened in that time. Like, for instance, I’ve had a baby. At home. But first things first… The week before I had the new baby (that yes, I’m getting to!) my oldest baby turned 11. I know, crazy, right? It’s really hard for me to believe. But how wonderful!
He chose the candles from our stash. He picked 11 of them. Not surprising. But what was surprising was that he chose ponies and pink candles as well as the other brightly colored ones. When I asked him about them he told me it was so that all of his siblings would have candles they liked so that they could help him blow the candles out.
Is that not the sweetest?!
This was also the first year that he asked for only money from everyone. He saved up and bought his very own Nexus 7 tablet. Wow. Y’all, he’s growing up. And how neat he is.
Happy 11th Birthday, sweet Oldest!
