Noah Turns 7!!

Wow, it is hard to believe that our boy is already 7. Some days it seems like just yesterday we brought him home from the hospital.
What he has done in 7 years...
...learned to walk, talk,write his name, count to 100, ride a bike, read
...lived in 3 different houses in 2 different states
...taken 7 airplane rides and a cruise
...traveled to 7 states, and the Bahamas (and is ready to travel to China)
...lost several teeth, and scraped several knees

He loves to read, draw, play computer games, run like the wind, meet new friends, go places.
He loves Scooby Doo, Spongebob, His aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents and parents and God.
What more can you ask for??? We are TRULY blessed!


...yikes...I have not blogged in 14 days!!! That is because SO MUCH is going on. Since my last post, Noah has turned 7, I returned to Virginia for a quick but awesome trip with the amazing women of All Saints, and the entire contents of our Virginia house have been packed and are ready to be loaded on a truck to FINALLY be placed in our new home. We have 2 closings in the next 4 days, Halloween(for which I have not bought a costume for my son), AND move-in day. Unpacking will have to wait....

My little guy is not a baby anymore.....

..he is almost SEVEN years old! Yikes! How did that happen? And tonight he is going to his first real sleepover. There have been a few false-starts before...and we got a call at about 10pm saying he wanted to come home. I think this time he is really ready...and he will only be across the street at his friend Damien's house. I just watched him walk across the street...Superman backpack full of books, his toothbrush, pjs and some matchbox cars...and his Cat in the Hat blanket in tow!!!!
