Happy Birthday Oren

Somehow, my little baby Oren turned 7 on Friday! Where on earth did the time go? It feels like just yesterday I was bringing him home from the hospital. Taking him on his first plane ride at 4 weeks old to meet his Daddy for the first time. Taking him on his second plane ride to join his Daddy in England at just 4 months. Watching him wiggle out of his carseat, watching him run from the sprinkler, watching him figure out what to do with spaghetti.

Seems like only a short time ago he was learning how to talk, and learning how to walk. Learning about his colors, and where his toys go. Learning how to share and how to help his brother stop crying.

Only this morning it seems like he fit on my lap so much better. I thought that shirt William is wearing was his a moment ago. Where did this thin and tall young gentleman come from?

Now he's excited about scouts, and science. Outer space, and outside scooter time. Soccer balls, and legos. Now he can read almost everything he sees, and asks questions that I don't know the answers to. Somehow my little baby is growing up!

We were all very cheap on wrapping paper this year, so he got to open the double knotted plastic bags. Teeth it is!

Happy Birthday! Yeah, it's amazing how he's grown. I loved your reminecsing and wrapping paper!

Michelle, I still noticed that you have yet to update the new address to my blog. Do you need me to send you the address again?

Happy Birthday, Oren (a day late) I feel the same way about Emily, who just turned 7 too! Just don't know where the time went. They do grow up too fast.
