Seven is the Perfect Number

It was this guy's 7th birthday last Sunday.  Why does that seem so weird to see in print?  He is the baby, the last born, the littlest one in our family.  But now he is getting not so little anymore.  This week we went to a movie and in the dark theater, he made a giggle next to me and when I looked over, for a few brief moments in the shadows, I could see the 3 year old Brennen again.  It was really bittersweet.  You feel like you will NEVER forget how chubby their cheeks were, how raspy his voice was, how totally adorable they are when they are babies.  But you DO forget.  So when I got a glimpse of my baby again, I smiled.  He's still there, just longer, smarter, and more grown up.

I love you, Brennen Nathan.
