It Was the Happiest of Birthdays

We had the Round Up Gang waiting on the couch for Micah when he woke up in the morning, balloons on the floor, and our Happy Birthday banner hung in the kitchen. When Micah went downstairs, it was evident that something fun was going on. I followed him down, gave him a hug and a kiss, and said, "happy birthday, Micah! It's your birthday today!" The look on his face was something that I want to remember forever. His eyes lit up, he looked up at me to be sure that he heard correctly, looked at the Happy Birthday banner, back at me, and grinned from ear to ear. He understood that it was HIS birthday. Another intangible that he was able to grasp. It was a huge moment, and I got to witness it. That was his gift to me on his 8th birthday. Our gift to him was a pair of Buzz wings. He was equally thrilled.

Those pictures are just perfect! I cannot believe he is 8-years-old! (Which is, of course, easy to say because he isn't my 8-year-old . . . I still have a few more years to go!) I am so glad that he had such a terrific day!
