First Grader turns 7 today - SEVEN?! OMG! When did that happen? Just yesterday he was walking underneath the dining room table & sleeping in a crib. When did he become this little man - full of questions and observations about the world around him? I asked him a question about breakfast & his response, "yes please." To say I smiled would be an understatement. Somewhere in the last 7 years, between his mommy, his Papa, his uncle, his aunts and me - he heard us modeling good manners and has become a little gentleman. First Grader has a very creative imagination. Especially when it comes to Superheros! He can make up different stories about Spiderman, Batman, and the rest of them without any prompting! Since he became confident in his reading ability, not an item goes by that he doesn't try to read. Cereal boxes, advertisements, birthday cards, street signs, garbage mail - you name it & he's probably read or tried to read it!
Celebration will be held later today - cupcakes at school followed by the dinner he requested (our store's fried chicken, green beans & salad) and then chocolate cake with choclate icing & the opening of birthday presents!
Pictures to be posted soon!
