8!

Our "little" Jack turns 8 today!  8!  How can he already be 8??? 

How quickly he went from our snuggly little chinky monkey:


to our fun, hot wheels lovin' toddler:


to our precious young man:


who loves nothing more than playing baseball:



 and will play baseball year round (which now that he is on travel ball, will get the chance to do that)


I look at Jack and I think about how much he has changed physically in 8 years, but notice he is still our sweet, thoughtful and quiet little boy that he has always been.  Jack loves sports, riding his bike, playing outside and watching wrestling...which gives this girly momma a chance to get dirty and now plan a wrestling themed birthday party :)  (oh the things we will do for our children)  I admire his resilience and strength...he has endured so much in 8 years and has never let it slow him down, not even in the least little bit.  I look forward to watching him grow up (though I wish I could slow time down) and seeing him become the man that God wants him to be.  Happy Birthday Jack!  Mommy, Daddy and Sissy love you so very much
