Today is a special day in this house!! It's officially the countdown to Sam's 10th birthday!! DID YOU SEE THAT?? HE WILL BE 10.... DOUBLE DIGITS..... YOUNG BOY......ALMOST TEEN......MY LAST BABY......MY ONLY BOY......where did the time go, why did it have to go so fast and all these years are like a blur. So many fun times with this boy and I don't want to forget them and have them end yet either. I have wanted a boy forever since I grew up with girls and had 3 girls before this baby boy of mine came. If I knew for sure the next baby would be a boy I would have had another one gladly but after all these girls I wasn't taking the chance.
He is extra special and extra sweet because he's the youngest and only boy. I wake him every morning telling him how cute he is and how much I LOVE HIM!!!
So anyhow why is this birthday special.... well he will be 10 on the 10th this month. I'm sure that means something and probably even has a name...... for me the 10th bday rocks in our house. We always give them a friends bday at this age and this year we are doing a laser tag party with 10 boys at our local bowling alley. Sam is over the moon excited and can't wait till it's party time.
Untill then though his sisters and I have secretly planned a 10 days till your 10 countdown calender for him and I wrapped up 10 gifts which he will get to open one each day till he's 10. It all starts tomorrow when he gets up. This is top secret and he will be soooo excited to have these extra special things for him. So thru this week I will be sharing some photos of him and his birthday Q&A that I do on their bdays and next week he gets to take the pictures for the day and help me with Project Life.
I have some pictures below that are some of my favorite of him growing up and will do more later this week and/or on his actual birthday. Hope you enjoy them and see just how big he has gotten.
