It seems impossible to believe, but Book Boy turned eight years old today! It seems like just yesterday that we held our little 8 lb 4 oz, 21″ bundle of joy in our arms for the first time.
We didn’t do anything tremendously exciting in celebration, but Book Boy seemed happy enough. Last Thursday we met my cousin’s wife and kids at a place called Jungle Java – the kids spent the afternoon playing hard in the huge play area. Today, Book Boy took cupcakes to school and Little Sister and I made him a cake for this evening. We enjoyed his dinner of choice (pizza rolls) followed by singing and cake. We also let the kids have a rare school night movie. (Because pizza rolls are best eaten in front of the TV, of course.) It was a nice evening and BB seemed happy. Oh, and he enjoyed his presents from us – a Nintendo DS game, a Hangman game, and a little cash. (He has quite a stash of cash now!)
In honor of this momentous day, here are some pics of Book Boy’s first year or so:
