I'm 8 now!
My baby turned 8 today. He's been waiting for this all month. I woke him up this morning, he rolled over all sleepy and asks me "Am I 8 now?". I said yes and he yelled Yeah! and hopped out of bed. He immediatly greeted is dad with, I'm 8 now! When I took him to school and dropped his treats off he walked in the classroom and announced he's 8 now, and it goes on. My Mom called to wish him a happy birthday and he picks up the phone and says "I'm 8 now mamma!" and then with the next 2 grandparent phone calls as well.
He had a most awesome birthday. We surprised him with a train trip to Chicago and Shedd's next week! He also got a camera from grandma and grandpa along with some cool toys.
I personally can't believe he is 8, it sounds so old and I can't wrap my brain around it. I am sure the fact that he is in 1st grade still and is more at a 6yr old level plays into that a bit! Tomorrow we are having a playdate since there is no school and that should wrap up the weeklong festivities.
