...7 Years...

December 4, 2010 my youngest turns 7. I can’t believe it. SEVEN.

His legal name is Robert Eugene Todd, III, but he has been called Ret since he entered this world. (I cannot believe I'm already starting to tear up - INHALE....EXHALE)

I have been searching for photos of him because a blogpost is pretty boring without images. (This is where I need to add GET PHOTOS MADE OF YOUR KIDS - you will cherish them forever!)  I would love to share one from each month of his life, but let's not get crazy! 

Funny, from day one he has had the same wonderful cheeks (so kissable), born with a head full of black hair that changed and blue eyes that never will change and a personality that is sure to keep us laughing for the rest of our lives. 

In the last seven years we have had the chance to experience the world through his super inquisitive eyes, giving me a perspective on life I could NEVER have gotten without him. (Sure glad there are no hidden cameras right now - I'm sure the snot & tears are very attractive)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my sweet, gorgeous blessing of a 7 year old. I'm constantly thanking God for sharing you with me. You add so much to my life and our family and I couldn’t be more grateful to experience life with you.  I love you.
