My Middlest is seven today. He is both one of my very favorite people AND one who is wired so similarly to his mother that I sometimes just have to walk away from the madness.
The day he was born was magical. Seriously. I don’t say that about his brothers’ birth days. But the day of his birth was calm and after he was born, they let me hold him for a half hour before they took him for even a moment. It’s a whole long story but we didn’t get that with our first birth which made holding him and staring at him so special.
Today I had him tell me 7 things he loves about himself:
1. I’m creative.
2. I’m super smart.
3. I’m lovable.
4. I’m a really good friend.
5. I have the talent of making songs.
6. I read super well.
7. I am Jonah.
I’d say at 7, the kid seems to know himself pretty well 😍. He’s quirky. He’s kind. And he’s got blue eyes that will make you melt.
Happy number 7, Jonah Brooks!
