Today was Lennox’s 7th birthday. He woke up to a birthday banner and house full of balloons.

Then filled his birthday boy tummy with homemade chocolate chip belgian waffles, along with a happy birthday serenade.

Full tummy and extremely excited he went off to share part of his birthday with his teacher and classmates. As far as I can tell he got lots of birthday well wishes and came home with a personalized crown. After school we relaxed with some video games and waited patiently (haha not really) for Daddy so he could open presents. Lennox ripped through his gifts and we headed out for a birthday dinner and special dessert. Johnny Rockets was his choice and a good time was had by all…

I don’t think I’ve seen them eat so much a in awhile, but we weren’t done! We walked across the parking lot to a new frozen yogurt place called Yogofina.

Awesome kid friendly place, complete with kiddie tables and chairs (Ikea) and Ratatouille playing on a flat screen. Oh and the wall of about a billion toppings was pretty great too! All and all I think Lennox had a good and memorable birthday. It’s not over yet either, Grandma & Grandpa are coming up and Saturday we’re having a party. Not bad for turning 7 right?!

Sevens years of being a mom, feels like a life time in the blink of an eye. I’ve learned and changed so much. I am always overwhelmed when I stop to look at him, really look at him. I see how much he’s grown, how smart and capable he is. It blows my mind, and makes my heart swell and break all at once.

Lennox I am so proud of you, so proud to call you son. I am truly blessed to be in in your life, and love you more than I will ever be able to show or explain.
Happy Birthday
Love Mom :)
