This sweet thang turns 7 today. He is the perfect firstborn. Easy going. Responsible. Fun. Hardworking. Adorable.
There are so many things I love about this boy. I love how his role as older brother as really evolved over the past year. He really cares about his brother and is fiercely protective of him.
Landon, Brooks and I were on a recent bike ride and several times something happened where Brooks fell behind, fell off his bike, got stuck in the middle of a big hill and this boy just turned into super brother, quickly finding out what was wrong and helping his little brother out. He hopped off his bike, grabbed B’s bike and walked it up the hill, then went back down and got his own bike. There are examples like this all the time of how sweet his is taking care of Brooks.
I love how he gets along with everyone. He is loved by so many in his class. The teachers tell me he gets along with everyone. He’s a natural peacemaker and avoids conflict.
He is just all-around awesome. He works hard no matter if it’s reading, helping in the yard, working on his sports skills or doing a chore like cleaning the playroom or putting dishes away.
I am so proud of who this boy is and what he stands for. He is joy, love, kindness and tenderness all wrapped in one. I get choked up just thinking about the fact that I’m already about halfway through my parenting job. I can’t believe he’s been my baby for 7 years already. It’s flying by.
Happy birthday to my sweet Landon Robert. You are the awesome-est young man and I’m so proud of who you are and what you bring to our family. I can’t wait to smother you with kisses (while I still kinda can) and love on you all day. I love you (times a million bajillion)!
