WHAT!! Where did the time go?! I remember vividly bringing you home for the first time and what a good baby you were. You do not seem like you should be 8 yet! I'm having small moments of anxiety off and on, he still seems little to me!
Okay, okay, breathe.....
So time has apparently sped forward and Parker is now 8. This year we had a little trouble deciding what to do for his birthday but we finally came up with a lego theme party. Once we decided on that everything came together nicely.
We gathered up all the legos we had and decided to have a building party. The boys were given 30 seconds to grab a pile of legos out of the container and then had 15 minutes to build their ships.
We sang 'Happy Birthday' and didn't sound like the dead, and he was able to blow out the candles in one big breath!
He had a GREAT party and after all his guests left he dug into all those legos! It kept him and his brothers busy for a couple of hours. We still have them set out on the shelves in the living room, Lily hasn't managed to destroy all of them yet *wink*
Happy Birthday buddy! We love you soooo much, you just need to SLOW down in the growing department *smile*
