Master W.... you are 8 years old today

You still want hugs and to be right next to me

teddy is still very important to you

everything you do is with 100% effort and concentration

you still love having your photo taken

as long as you are in a good mood

playgrounds are so much fun

you have a great sense of adventure

and have a love of rocks
(and we are so sorry we brought the wrong rock home the other day from our trip up the hill)

you enjoy playing pranks on your swim teacher  more than actually swimming

you take great responsibility in feeding the cat each night

you are super helpful in the kitchen

shorts and a t-shirt is all you want to wear all year round 
(I'm sorry I made you wear a jersey with it being below 5 degrees and you were feeling hot)

we hope your new glasses make reading and writing easier

you have so much patience for your brother

you pull the funniest faces for photos

you are very honest about how you feel 

monkey moo you are growing up so fast

 we love you to the moon and back in a Milano Spaceship


I love looking back over the past few years blog posts 7 years6 years,  5 years and 4 years
