Letter to H - Happy 7th Birthday!
Tuesday, November 16, 2010
My big boy. I can't believe you are 7 today. You seem so old to me yet so little at the same time. I know I have told you this story a hundred times and you love to hear it, on the day you were born no one knew how big you were going to be. There were guesses. Even my doctor said you were probably around 8 1/2 pounds. But when you came out - holy moly you were a whopping 10 pounds 12 ounces. They told us you were the biggest baby in the hospital. You came out all red and swollen but you were amazing!
Now you are 7. You are really showing us who you are. You are so much like both me and daddy. You are smart - really smart. You love math and history - especially anything you can learn about the presidents. You have discovered golf and really excel at any sport. Swimming seems to be your strongest sport. Just this week you have moved up to the Jr. Swim Team and you were so proud. But you are also opinionated and stubborn and have to be right all the time. This is what gets you into the most trouble. You ask a million questions but seem to know the answers to most of them before you even ask. I love that you still like to cuddle on my lap and watch movies (but not so much when Chessa and Brady are already there). Your smile lights up your face and you love being silly. I love how you play with your sister and look out for her when we are out and I even like it when you know how to push her buttons and make her mad (because that is teaching her to stand up for herself and be tough - even though you just want to be annoying). You have been a great big brother from day one even though there are days when that is very had for you. I love it when you want to help daddy and grandpa with all of the house projects. And my favortie thing of all is when I try and kiss you and you pretend to protest but love it when my kisses win out and I get to smooch your cheek.
This year I hope that we can have so many adventures together, that you continue to love learning and asking me question, after question, after question, and that we finally loose the pull-ups at night!
Happy 7th Birthday my candy loving, goofy, and always energetic little boy!
I love you!
