He's 7

He's 7 
Kade turns 7 today.  (I mean, 5 years and 24 months.  I told him he can't be older than 5.  Ever.)

We already had his party so we just had a small celebration of his special day with our family.  He got to open one present this morning before school (baseball themed knobs for his dresser).  I took in treats for his class.  Mickey picked him up from school.  He opened some more presents in the afternoon (lots of legos and monster trucks).  We had Kade's requested birthday dinner of roasted turkey roast, corn, biscuits, and pasta.  Then a big cookie from Martin's.

Last year I accidentally started a new tradition with Kade on his birthday.  He asked for a 7 shirt.  I was happy to honor his request.  I found a great tutorial on how to take two shirts to make a baseball style one.  Then I sewed on two 7s.  The one on the back is big, like a baseball shirt would have.  It turned out cute, if I do say so myself.

Happy Birthday, Kade!  We are so lucky to have you in our family.  You make us laugh all the time.  You are a great little man to have around.  So helpful, sweet, and smart.  Love you.  Now stop growing up, please?

I seriously doubt he is going to honor that last request. Those are some great pictures of our little man. Happy Birthday buddy!
