Shame on me! Two weeks ago we celebrated another special day in our family and I have yet to write about it. My goodness, what is this blog coming to??
On June 14th Alex turned 8. EIGHT! Can somebody put on the brakes please?
My boy. My only boy. My goofy, sensitive boy who is usually a mystery to me. I don't really know boy stuff, but he's no typical boy, so it all works out. I guess.
What stands out most to me about Alex is what a big heart he has. This year I have watched him be so very generous with his sisters. How many 8 year boys do you know that will spend their own money to buy gifts for his sisters? This one does. It floors me every time. He also says that Ceci is the best thing that ever happened to him (even though he wanted a little brother more than anything).
Before you think he's all sensitive and sappy all the time, don't be fooled. He also knows how to get those sisters of his all worked up and annoyed. That's what brothers do, right?
And the jokes. I think I've mentioned his prankster side on every birthday post I've ever written. Now that he's getting a little older, his jokes are getting a bit more witty. Love that.
Oh Alex, you just keep being exactly as you are!
