Happy Birthday Evan!

Hey there! Our spring break has definitely not turned out the way we expected... I am really sick and we have had to cancel most of our plans. I am just heartbroken for Evan... his 7th birthday was yesterday and we have canceled most of his birthday plans because I can't leave the couch! 

Despite having to shuffle our schedule around, Ev still had a great day. Mark picked up a chocolate cake from Publix (complete with trick candles), and Evan got to spend some birthday money on Nurf guns and a mini bowling set from Toys R Us. We gave him two new Lego Star Wars sets + a new soccer goal for the backyard. Hopefully Mark and I will have enough energy to put it together tomorrow! 

I was feeling nostalgic last night and went looking for pictures of Evan as a baby... and I found these from the day after he was born. I think he was 7 or 8 hours old in these photos and I cherish them:

He. Was. Perfect. In every way. He never cried, loved to be held, and I fell in love with him the moment he was placed in my arms. I remember these first moments so vividly... I should have been exhausted, but all I wanted to do was hold him in my arms. And look at his cute little nose!  

And here he is today. 7 years old. 49.5 inches tall, 55 pounds, size 7 clothes, and size 2.5 shoes. Tall. Lean. Wide shoulders and long legs. And definitely all boy. 

Happy 7th Birthday, Evan! I love you to the moon and back.

Couldn't imagine going through this life without my little buddy by my side. Life's been an adventure and he makes the best side kick.
