It is crazy to me that my baby is almost 7! It’s funny, I never thought of him actually getting bigger.
Him being the youngest, I’ve always just pictured him as small and ‘the baby’. But here he is, this growing boy, a BOY not a toddler, not a baby and he’s getting big!
I swear I’m in denial half the time with these boys. They get taller, and change every day but when I look at them I still see little boys. Maybe it’s a mom thing. I don’t know, but it’s amazing, these little people God gave us. We love them so much!
I write a letter every year to them, right before their birthdays…. I can’t believe its that time again for Jayden, and next month Peyton. The days seem shorter and shorter as they get bigger. I cherish all of it!
I’m so thankful Jason and I met, and married, in our 30s. (Late to some people, but perfect for us). At the time, before I met Jason, I didn’t think I would get married and I was ok with it. But I’m SO thankful we met and were able to have our two sweet boys. We secretly prayed for a third for awhile…. But it’s ok. Our family is complete. We’re so happy. God is so good!
I can’t believe in a few days you will be 7! This past year was filled with so much. You not only grew a ton right before our eyes you learned so much and came so far at school. It’s amazing watching you read, sound out words you don’t know, and do math just because you want to.
I catch myself trying to drink you in all the time. Your six year old face will probably change a lot this year, just like it always does. You are SO OVER being 6 though! You ask me all the time “is today is almost over yet?” because its one day closer to your birthday. You can’t wait to be 7, and more importantly, to see if you’re getting any Angry Bird Telepods for your birthday.
We love you so much Jayden! Don’t grow up too fast. Enjoy being 7 and thank you for always keeping us entertained, talking our ear off, and keeping us on our toes! You are an amazing person and I thank God every day that you are ours!
Happy Birthday sweet Jay!
I love you.
