7 Seven Siete Sieben Sies

Seven years ago tonight one long journey was ending (the pursuit of parenthood, a 46 hour difficult labor ending in infection and an urgent C-section) and one was beginning (motherhood - having my heart walking around outside my body, as the saying goes!). D didn't come easy in any sense of the word, but he has been (mostly! lol) a JOY! He was such a fun baby - fun loving, adventuresome, affectionate and quick learning. It's hard to believe he is now 7 years old!

Like his Daddy and his Grandma, D is a 'chocoholic'! Here he is on his first birthday. We set his cake up on a Rubbermaid storage container because it was just his height, washable and could sit in the middle of the kitchen where there was no carpeting.

Needless to say, he enjoyed the experience. It was hilarious to watch. He had the same reaction as my little brother did on his first birthday, while my girls were quite dainty tasting frosting, just like their Mommy on her first birthday. Needless to say, he enjoyed his chocolate cake!

Today he blew out 7 candles (one not pictured) in his new Indiana Jones hat and he was quite neat about it.

His sisters, on the other hand were quite another story! This is A (poor thing has a fever but didn't want to miss the fun).

And J took total delight! More birthday pictures to follow!

Freulichen glueckwunsch zum Geburtstag mein kleiner Mann! Ich liebe Dich!
