He. Is. Seven. How can that be? I am near tears thinking about. Forget "near" tears, I am in tears. My sweet baby boy. We've had a rough time, him and me. It seems that he thinks he is a grown up, so I spend my days reminding him that he is not.

No matter how grown he thinks he is, he is my baby. My heart. He is such a sweet, tender hearted little guy. Sometimes during the day, I feel like I am going to pull my hair out, but I simply can not fathom not spending my days with him.

He is such a sweet boy. There are so many things I could say about him - he loves sports and he is really good at them, especially basketball and football. He is a math whiz. In fact, most of the time, I don't even need to teach him new math concepts, he just gets it. He tries really, really hard to build a relationship with his little brother. He is very excited that they now share a room. He hasn't complained once about Jameson being in there. He loves every second of it. His daddy is his best friend in the whole world. He is more content just staying home with daddy than doing anything else. One of his favorite things to do is co-sleep with us. He usually doesn't have to twist our arms to let him, either. He is very loyal to the South Carolina Gamecocks. He is a Gamecock through and through, which is funny considering he has never lived in South Carolina. I could go on and on about my sweet Jackson.

I love this child more than anything. I am so very blessed to be his mommy.

My first "baby" will be seven in June, and oh how my heart understands this post! I wish we were closer and could get our kids together to play...something tells me they would fit in together very well. :)

Happy Birthday, Jackson! Isn't it crazy how time flies? He's such a handsome, sweet little guy. Have an extra fun day!

This also means we've been friends for seven years! We met when both Jack's were babies, mine will be 7 in a few weeks.
