8 Years Old

I can't believe that I have an 8 year old... It doesn't seem possible that it was almost 9 years ago that I took Lowell a home pregnancy test in a plastic lunch box... I remember that day very well... I kept saying, "oh, my gosh" all the way down the hill. I was in shock and completely unprepared. And a little excited. :) Today, almost 9 years later, I can't imagine my life without my little DoodleBug. I love that gigantic boy so much. I love his gangly-ness, his grumpy-ness, his intelligence, his sweet heart, his honesty and his laugh... And so much more. And, while I'm not looking forward to him being 16 and starting to drive, I can't wait to see what the next 8 years of his life hold... And I feel so lucky to be able to share his life with him! :)

We had a small party with our family and the neighbors. I got a Star Wars cake at Walmart and Nathan's present was a Star Wars Wii game along with a couple big stuffed dinosaurs. He also got a T shirt and swim trunks from Mamoo and a car building set from Leeda. He's a very happy boy! A very happy 8 year old boy! :)
