I don’t think we had any idea how our lives would change when, seven years ago today, my water broke and we brought our little man into the world.
He was several weeks early, clearly eager to join our family and get started. And after a bit of a rough start, we were able to bring him home, introduce him to his pugs, and begin as a family of six (if you count the fur babies, which we do).
I can’t believe how much he’s grown since then.
We will share more details from his big day later, but we did have a very small celebration on Sunday. His current favorite thing is Minecraft, so I was able to use some free printables and Etsy finds for decorating.
This morning, he requested a donut with a candle in it, so we took him and his carpool buddy to Dunkin Donuts, and then tonight, he wants “cereal bar” at home (this is when he gets to top his regular, “healthy” cereal with things like Lucky Charms and Froot Loops. And fruit). He has been so incredibly low-key and sweet about everything, and I am so excited to see his reaction when he gets his big surprise gift.
Happy birthday to our little man. We love you to the moon and back.
How do you like to celebrate birthdays?
Are you a cereal person?
