Turning 7

My gorgeous little boy turned 7 at the weekend!  I really cannot believe he is 7 already; he is growing up so quick.

Thankfully he is still very cuddly and loving and long may that continue I would miss his all embracing hugs if they stopped.


We spent his birthday with some friends, having a trip to the cinema to watch the new Alvin and the Chipmunks film and for a meal out.  He made up sweet pots for his friends to enjoy with the film; he was so attentive making sure everyone had a fair share of the sweets.  I thought it was a better option than buying the sweets there after eldest managed to spend £6 just on himself when we were to the cinema last!

His birthday has been mainly about LEGO dimension characters that he asked for; he was equally pleased with his Dandy and Beano books.  He really loves the mischievous characters from the annuals so it’s always a good present for him.

He is a very caring boy, becoming more aware of how he affects how other people feel.  He re-adjusts what he says more often adding in manners or saying it more kindly, which is lovely to see.  He is very creative; he likes drawing and making inventions.  He is a bit of a horder of treasures and has two boxes he stores all his favourite items. 

Bless him he had quite the cough for his birthday but thankfully he still managed to enjoy his day.  I am surprised he had the energy for all the festivities as he had been up since 2am partly through coughing and mainly through the excitement!  I have never seen him so eager for his birthday to arrive.
