And Just Like That Hood 8 is Se7en+1…

October 1st, 2017 · 10 Comments

Did I mention it was birthday season over here… because we have another birthday in the family… Hood 8 is eight, and that really flew by so fast… I know it is a cliché, but really time has flown past!!!


A man who knows his books…


Like any good pirate…


He is always hunting for treasure…


And ocean life… is the life for him…


And so so so strong…


Always beating to his very own drum…


Ready to try anything new…


Sometimes I cannot even imagine what he has been up too…


And once a pirate… always…


Always good for a well earned break…


After a day of hard work…


Always ready to step off the edge… any edge…


Always ready for war…


Did I mention the ocean…


And the higher up you go, the better the chances of spotting the enemy…


And always a drawing at the top of every mountain…


And reading the LEGO manual…


And cook outs… Happy Brilliant Birthday little one…


Once a pirate… always a pirate…

    They grow too fast! I never understood why adults said that when I was growing up! But now I totally get it! Sometimes I wish I could stop time but I guess we can’t! So we enjoy every moment and document document document because even with the memory of an elephant (no idea if they have good memory but it sounds right) we forget little things.

    Happy birthday little one.. hope you have a splendid and blessed year ahead xxx

    Oh Heide, isn’t it funny how they stick on one thing… and the Lego manual is always his book of choice… loved to bits!!! thank you so much for stopping by…

    Thank you so much MrsFF… isn’t it crazy how fast time flies and how as a child it just crept by so slowly, in fact it practically stopped when waiting for important things like birthdays… and now time just marches on relentlessly!!! Anyway, he had a great day – as pirates do… and so true, it is fabulous that we can document their milestones!!! lots of love to you and your little one!!!
