Happiness is…

Making your own birthday cake with a giant number 7 candle on the top.


Meeting your brand new cousin.


Being regarded as big enough to hold this 14 day old cousin all by yourself.


When you are seven, this is as good as it gets.

  3. Cate says:

    Happy Birthday! Seven is the start of not being a little kid anymore…so my nephew told me anyway.

    Where do you get Miles t-shirts? I love that one, and Heavy Pedal, and I still live with my parents.

    Happy Birthday, big guy! Nice job on that birthday cake!

  6. Jennifer says:

    Happy Birthday. He looks so much like YOU.

  7. Maddy says:

    What a beautiful boy, and the baby is very very cute too.

    This son of yours is exactly 6 months younger than my oldest boy. Seven is, indeed, a magical age - or should I say, a reality age! Although mine’s starting to be all into Harry Potter and Narnia and suchlike, his realistic reasoning, and his reasoning at all ;), are so much different from just a year ago… But I’m sure you’ve experienced all this before!!!
    Happy Birthday, 7 year old son!

    What sweet pictures! Your 7 year old looks like he might be the sensitive, introspective one of the bunch? I love how he’s looking at the baby in the carrier. (and little Miles looks like “Now who is this??”) Thanks for sharing with all of us, and wish your 7 yr. old a very Happy Birthday!

    I love 7-year-old boys. I’m going to cry when mine turns 8. He’s charming and pleasant and generally nice to his little sisters right now. If I were 6, I’d marry him.

  11. Elizabeth says:

    After reading this, it came as a shock to me that 7 is the age my son will be in just over a month. Your son looks so OLD! And so does mine. How does this happen?

  12. Heather says:

    Happy 7th bday!

    Oh, that baby! (sigh) My ovaries hurt from just looking at that picture.

  13. kate says:

    how exciting another sweet baby! He is beautiful and so is your seven year old. he looks so happy and proud to be holding his new cousin!

  14. Hillary in KS says:

    Did your boy turn 7 on Friday? Happy Birthday!

    My ds turns 7 on Friday too. (23rd.)

    2000 was a good year!

  15. elizabeth says:

    Did you have a TURKEY baby? :) I have a younger brother who was born on Thanksgiving, and it was one special day!

    Happiest Seventh Year, to your beautiful son!

  16. Daisy says:

    So sweet! I have a near-Thanksgiving birthday (Friday following the big Turkey day), too. It’s kind of fun to have a day off from school on many birthdays. Tell your son he’s in good company.

    Sweet, sweet seven..a great age for little boys. Congratulations on that beautiful birthday cake, the proper amount of sprinkles were used, I see.
    Chris, where do you find those great tees, especially love that it is black as all “witty” children’s tees usually come in white:( I have 4 out of 6 grandboyz that could proudly wear that shirt.

  18. nicole case says:

    this is so cute. happy 7th birthday! p.s. in the picture of the three boys with the baby, Miles looks like a damn little boy. I didn’t even realize that was him until I triple-checked!


  19. Liz says:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Wow! 7!

  20. Susan says:

    You know I have a little soft spot for that particular seven year old. Happy birthday! Seven is the best.
