My younger son turns seven today, and it's hard to believe how much he's grown.
The weekend was packed with fun. We had a roller skating party with friends from school and ALL the Illinois cousins...
For the party, I made one of the best cakes EVER! (And it was delicious!)
And today, we're headed to school to surprise him. (I can't wait.)
When I think back to this day, seven years ago, I am astounded that my little miracle -- conceived shortly after I had miscarried, carried to term, and delivered (VBAC) naturally -- could possibly be seven. He was so tiny when he was born, but when I first took him in my arms I remember feeling gratitude so overwhelming that it bordered on disbelief.
I'm still grateful for him -- every day. He is and always will be my treasure.
