Lucky 7

by Stefani on 2-March-2008

Birthday Baloons

Maybe, if I repeat it to myself over and over again for the next few days, it will seem true to me by next weekend, when it’s time for your “real party”.

But I don’t think so.

It can’t possibly have been 7 years since I first saw your little face.

7 years since you arrived and changed… oh, every little thing.

Lucky 7

I don’t believe it really, but you tell me that it’s true. You tell me several times a day, in fact.

“Mama, I’m SEVEN! Can you believe it?”

No. No I can’t.

Big Man


Seven with your lost teeth and your reading prowess. Seven, riding without training wheels, pouring your own cereal. Seven, with sleepovers and video games and wondering about how one chooses a wife. Seven, and no longer asking me to push you, because you can swing yourself higher than I can push anyway.

Tree Swing





And you. You are just so wonderful.

Oh wow! Seven is so amazing and wonderful. What a big big boy he is and what a fantastic gift for you, mama.

Keri March 2, 2008 at 8:59 pm

My son, who recently turned 8, asked me how you tell a girl you love her. Such funny questions from little boys!!! Happy Birthday to your little man!

I love that t-shirt idea.

I refuse to believe that they get this big….although…pushing themselves on the swing? That might be nice…

Seven is really REALLY big, for sure! Sometimes is so much bigger for the mama than the baba isn’t it?
Happiest Big Birthday Wishes. Enjoy flying so high.
That t-shirt is so cool. Also – what is that delicious looking birthday pie/cake/pudding/chocolate mousse?

Happy Birthday little guy. I happen to have a very beautiful little girl who also just turned seven and whom is also missing a few teeth. What a magical and fun age. Enjoy it!

Stephanie March 3, 2008 at 6:49 am

Happy birthday, big boy! Hope you get lots of surprises!

And here’s a tissue for Mom.

Oh, it goea by so fast! Happy Birthday to your big boy!! I have one turning 7 in a few months…

Happy Birthday!

Seven is VERY big, and a fine time to figure out how to choose a mate 🙂 Happy birthday!

Cheryl March 3, 2008 at 9:15 am

Love the tee – that has been my official birthday gift for all the youngsters in our family this year. They each get a tee with their age on it and their name on the back. Was going to do a tutorial on this but again, there we go down that road in a hand-basket. 😉

Happy Birthday, Big Kid!

leslie March 3, 2008 at 10:25 am

emily turns 8 this weekend coming up (the biggest production in history to get this party together) and i am thinking these two would be a great future match… we could be mother-in-laws together!!! we have time to make it happen, like 20 years or so (i am all about waiting to get married)

happy birthday!!!

I got a little choked up from this post. Mine are still just 1 and 3, so I’m trying not to look too far ahead. That 7 shirt is dang cool.

Anna March 3, 2008 at 11:03 am

such a wonderful letter to your big boy! 7 is the only birthday I kept (and embellished) a card from. enjoy!

Diane March 3, 2008 at 11:28 am

Happy Birthday!

LOVE the new banner, too.

Berlinswhimsy March 3, 2008 at 12:09 pm

Happy Birthday! Seven is such a fun year!

Love the swinging picture—-so fun of excitement…

Lori March 3, 2008 at 12:36 pm

seven is so bittersweet :^)

although not as bittersweet as ten…

happy birthday to your little man


Aimee Greeblemonkey March 3, 2008 at 3:11 pm

Sally March 3, 2008 at 3:50 pm

Best wishes no 7.
My youngest turned one today..
Where does the time go?
Lots of love and luck for the coming year

Katrien March 3, 2008 at 6:28 pm

Gelukkige Verjaardag !! (= Happy Birthday in Dutch) 7… I can’t imagine, I really can’t. I guess you can’t either, nor lucky-7 himself, until 14 rolls around, perhaps…

By the way, you’re tagged for an A to Z. Cf. MamaStories for the template. Short, I promise!

molly March 5, 2008 at 4:57 pm

oh, seven. and I’m struggling with six. I don’t know if I can handle seven. It’s sounds way too grown up!

Happy Birthday to your Seven.
keep swinging.
