Nathan: Age 7

Seven years ago on a hot July morning, I waited patiently in all my pregnant glory for lunch.

I wasn't due until August, but certain surprises led to skipping that cheeseburger. Now, seven years later, the little baby who turned me into a mama has grown up to be the kid pictured. Nathan is one amazing human being. I'd like to take a pinch of credit for it, but I'm pretty sure he just came like that. He loves as hard as he worries about others, he's dedicated, he's determined, and he's 100% who he wants to be. He's generous, he's wise, he's talented, he's selfless, and he's himself. Nathan is the kind of person who lets you know there is still pure good left in the world. There is something special behind those brown eyes, and I'm honored to get to watch it unveil.

Happy Birthday to my baby son, born on 07-07-07, and seven years old today. In honor of his big day, I let him sit in the hot seat for a birthday interview. Enjoy his answers today {age six answers here for comparison}, and then check back for more birthday week fun! Happy Monday, y'all.

Well, I think I got a little more "mature" over the past years. 😅😂👌
