I just gotta say…I hate writing. A simple post like this takes me forever. A day when I was struggling with words and memories, Simon and I looked up his previous birthday posts. After having a good laugh I realized how important this collection of memories were to the boys and I. Sooooo…here goes…
Excited about running and chess club, Simon adjusted well to the move here in Seattle. Having his own room and a 9:00am start time on school mornings, that’s not much to complain about! Especially since he typically wakes up on the couch in our room… Yes, you read right, he’s turning 7 not 2, but he’s my leetle bebe;)
He’s just as random as ever, and continues to keep us entertained. Serious comments like “So basically I can do ‘O’s and zero’s but I can’t draw circles.” or “We have to wait until the spring before we can get spring water for our fish?” have us shaking our heads. As much as he LOVES to run, he thinks hiking is exhausting. His favorite number is 40 and his favorite color, pink. He spent his birthday money on 30 fake snowballs and that night he fell asleep with all 30 snowballs stuffed into his pajamas. I’ve loved the increased hand holding and hugs. The words ‘I love you’ still have not surfaced (except once on accident) but as someone recently reminded me, actions speak louder than words.
A lot of changes over the last few months and this mama was not up for the extravagant birthday party challenge! So Simon and I settled on having a few friends over with games, food and cake. Big fancy party or not, this boy was happy at the end of the day:)
