    Happy Birthday Hood *2!!! Hope you have a joyous day. May your year ahead be filled with wonder and excitement.
    This post was so beautifully done – especially the way you end off with his baby photo’s. It had me all teary.

    Happy Birthday! Time sure flies. My Scholar turned 7 yesterday – and he loves many of the same things as your guy. (Can’t call him little.)

    It seems like just yesterday that he joined his two big sisters at home. They seemed so grown up … taking care of the new baby with me.

    Happy Birthday!!!
