Devyn is getting older.

Tomorrow is my baby boy's birthday, Devyn. He will be 7 yrs old.

I still ask him if I can cradle him like a baby and he says "yes". (of course he rolls his eyes when he says it but..whatever...I'll take it how I can get it).
Sometimes I want to grab him up and swaddle him, just cause I miss it.

Angel says I 'baby' him. I don't care. He's still rough and tough like a boy should be but he also knows when I need affection and he is the first to give it to me. I don't want him to grow up. He's at the perfect age. He can feed himself, wipe his own butt, bathe and clothe himself. What more could you ask for?

Anyway. I won't allow him to get any older.

He swears that when he grows up he will always be here for Momma. We'll see.


Angel told me yesterday that he will be moving to Presidio, Tx. (wherever that is) starting the 8th or so of July. He will be there for 6 mo. to a year. Well, if I ever needed some time to myself, then will be the time to take it.

That still leaves me trying to move everything and get out of the apartment with the kids by myself. Oh well. In the end...I will still be around family.

We'll see how it goes.

My oldest turns 7 in two weeks and our children sound like two peas in a pod. It's so very bittersweet. But, it's so much better than having stinking babies.

Wait wait wait. He just tells you he's moving away? What the heck? Oh man I missed something somewhere I need to read down farther!

I have a 7 year old and I can't stand the thought of him getting any bigger.

You lost my on Angel.. have I missed something? I am guessing he is moving for work?

Sorry guys...yeah, Angel is moving for work. He goes wherever the company sends him to work.

They grow up too fast. They are born and then, before you know it, they're seven.

Yeah, I freaked out about Angel for a minute.
