And then he was 8???
April 17th was a big day at our house as KC turned 8. I can't wrap my mind around 8, but there you have it, he really truly IS 8. The same age that Rob was when we met that teeny little KC in the NICU. Once so helpless and so utterly dependent, that little guy has grown. Into a pretty adventurous and confident fellow. An artist. A dancer. A musician. And a comedian. Definately a comedian. This year, he chose a Mario theme for his party. There was a mural. It was cool. It didn't really photograph well so please take my word for it! LOL There were party goers, dressed as Luigi (above) Princess Peach (below)
Mario and an extra Luigi! LOL KC actually had a costume of Luigi he was set on wearing until the temps climbed to record busting 87 degrees.
There was Mario jumping over a mushroom on his birthday cake.
And KC got his very own, skateboard. (sigh) He has been using one of Rob's old boards and really REALLY wanted his own.
But art stuff and books still bring a grin as well. I love watching your face light up. I love watching you carefully store every single card you get so you can look at them over and over. Happy Birthday KC! Oh, and he told me he has all ready picked out his theme for next year--outer space! Sort of perfect for exploring new things, new horizons and having new experiences.
I am a happy mom of 5 (4 at home) and our family is built through adoption. The way is not always easy but love helps us on the journey. Also on this blog are my eldest son's blog about books and movies, and KC's blog about his life. (KC is 7 and wants to share his views of the world.
