Family Friday - Birthday Boy Edition
My little Pumpkin
Happy Birthday little man! Hard to believe he is now seven.
Believe it or not I don’t think I have ever written his birth story down. The drawbacks of being number 3, his baby album is not done yet either. Which explains why I have a lack of pictures of him being a baby.
Your pregnancy was definitely than your sisters. With them I craved healthy things like beans, shrimp, cherries. With you it was sweets, like caramel. Maybe that is why you are sooo sweet to this day. When you were born you were not so small. They weighed and measured you. You came out 10lbs 1 oz. and 23 inches long. I sent your Dad home to go the 3 month clothing it was still too short! You went home in a 6 month outfit.
I am not sure where the name pumpkin came from. You certainly don’t look like a pumpkin. But the name has stuck.
You have always smiled. I find it hard to think of a time when you did not smile. People everywhere would ask me “does he always smile?” Yup, pretty much ALL the time.
You are sweet and always think of how others feel. Just the other day your teacher and I caught you sharing eggs with a classmate
You are a man’s boy.
No one made you happier as a baby than your Pop. As baby you were happiest on his lap. Then again he had a way with babies.
You shadow your father, and want to do whatever he does. And you are manly enough to cry at happy endings in movies.
When I ask you what want to be when you grow up , you tell me you don’t want to grow up. I don’t know what your future will bring but I am eager to see what sort of man you will grow into.
