Eight is GREAT!

My sweet, sweet Keller turns 8 today. I dare you to not like him.

It’s impossible.

(His first Halloween. What kind of mother makes their 9 month old wear something like that???)

He oozes happy. And kindness.

I want to be more like him.


Except for the part where he sets his alarm early so he can watch the highlights of last night’s Jazz game before school. And the part where he wears 2 hoodies instead of a coat.

Happy birthday, little buddy!

    He is adorable & sounds like a sweetheart :) he is like my 8yr old – love the Jazz, very kind & prefers hoodies -haha!
    HaPpy Bday

  13. Happy Birthday a couple of days late! I saw your post the day of but my hands just couldn't type fast enough to keep my mid one from interfering with what I was typing. Love the picture of his first Halloween, too cute and funny.

  14. Happy Birthday! And that Humpty Dumpty costume is fabulous. Not as good as the Elf costumes from this year, but a close second. :D

  15. Char, sooooo cute. Oh my I can't believe how fast they grow.

    And, although I have no interest in getting up early for anything (even the Jazz, whom I love) and I would never wear to hoodies (mostly because they wouldn't both fit)I think that is about the cutest thing ever!

  16. happy birthday to your son!!

    waking up early for sports must be a boy thing. my son is almost 10 and he LIVES for sports center and if i dvr a game, he will watch it over and over and OVER again until i delete it.

    have fun with your sweet boy!! aren't boys the best?

  17. Aww, happy birthday to your sweet guy. My "baby" girl turned 8 on the 22nd too. : )

  18. everyday muses says:

    Did you make that Humpty Dumpty costume? Ingenious!

  19. But what we know for positive is if you are in this polka dot hoodie, you will absolutely be attracting
    good vibes!

  20. I have sewn off and on my entire life.
