Eóin turns 7

Last month, my baby boy turned 7 years old! This year he chose Mario as his birthday party theme.  I think he gets just as excited about the decorations and cake as he does about the presents. Pics are on facebook here. He had a few school friends over and it was so funny to watch them all talking and playing together since I don't get to see them interact at school much. Such boys and big kids!

He has grown up so much this past year, and we are definitely entering a new phase of parenting. Explaining the reasons behind the rules and really working for him to see the heart behind his actions is becoming more and more important. He has such a tender heart for others which I am so thankful for, especially homeless people and others who don't have as much as our family has been blessed with.

He LOVES to play board/card games - favorites are Sorry, Uno Spin, and Skipbo. He also really enjoys reading which I am so excited about since I am a bookworm too! His other love is video games - it must be a boy thing.

He has also grown up physically. The kid eats like a teenager at dinner, but is still a string bean - just getting taller and taller. He's lost two teeth this year, and doesn't know what happened to either of the teeth. How do you not notice it twice!?! He was very relieved it didn't hurt though and was pretty happy with the dollar under his pillow :-D He is saving for a Wii apparently - might take a few more teeth...

Here's his yearly interview questions and birthday minute pics (most taken at 1:40pm)...
