On the 24th, we celebrated Parker's 7th birthday! Seven...how is that possible. When I close my eyes, I can still picture the day he slipped into this world and my arms. And now, we are here and he is 7! My sweet Parker, you fill our world with love and laughter, always with a bright smile on your face. You are a friend to everyone you meet and have developed a confidence that makes this mama proud. Your sensitive nature continues to nourish those around you. You are an amazing big brother and despite being "big", have such a way with little kids. We are so blessed to have you in our lives and we love you more than words could ever express!
(tradition in our house is that every 7 year old gets a pet for their birthday! Parker bounced around from pet to pet even up to the day we were actually in the store buying the supplies, but settled on a dwarf hamster named Hammy. Hammy is already a dearly loved family member...my sweet boy declaring he is so glad he got her "she is the best hamster ever")
