I feel like my baby’s birthday always finds me in a real pickle. I just can’t figure out if I should laugh or cry. Every single day for the last eight years this child has brought immeasurable joy and love to our lives. He’s funny, quirky, smart as a whip, honest, sensitive, laid back, independent and driven. Whit is like no one I’ve ever known and doesn’t exactly mirror either of his parents in personality, looks, or really anything at all. This is the baby I never thought I’d be able to have but wanted more than I’ve ever wanted anything in my life…
We celebrated with his close group of friends – the same crew he has had for 3+ years now – and family on Saturday morning!
And then this morning we had his favorite breakfast treat – homemade cinnamon rolls!! Our Elf on the Shelf Scout donned his cupcake outfit, and Elsa’s new elf-pup Anna was on hand as well (more on her later!)
Continuing with the BB8 theme, I carried in these treats for the class today as well!!
I figure we will head out to eat tonight to round out the birthday celebration. Or maybe we will stay in and have pancakes. THAT is all up to the newly minted 8 year old…
Happiest of birthdays to you, my precious baby.
