Eight Years. It Seems Like Yesterday.

My baby boy is 8 years old today.

number 8

How? How does life zoom by so quickly?

I vascillate between lamenting the fact that my boy is growing too quickly, and reveling in what he's growing into. My baby is only that in title now. There's so very little that's, well, little. As he's growing and maturing, we celebrate daily who he's become.

Dance!

Happy birthday, Micah. We love you immensely. And we thank you for growing us in more ways than we ever thought we could in the past 8 years. You amaze us, dear son. God has been very good to us.

Carol - it is fun, isn't it? He was actually dancing, though. My boy loves to dance. :)

Happy birthday to Micah! And Happy Micah's Birthday to YOU, mama! :)

(And I have to say that your oldest's FB status earlier today? Made me smile and tear up! She's the sweetest, bestest big sister EVAH!)

Happiest Birthday to your beautiful, hansome, and special in so many ways Micah. Thank you, Momma, for sharing him with us - I think it is safe to say that he has taught us all a little something about life and what really makes it special.
