Sebastian's Seven

my sweet baby boy was born on leap year.

february twenty-ninth two thousand and four.

he turns seven years old sometime between today and tomorrow.

(we'll celebrate his second birthday next year.)


seven years old.

oh my goodness, how time seems to fly by.


sebastian is the sweetest, most generous boy.

i'm so proud to call him mine.


we waited until this year to share his birth video with him.

  after he watched his delivery into the world;

 while still snuggled up in my lap, 

he looked at me and said

"That was amazing."


Funny, I was thinking the same thing.


how can something seem like just yesterday and at the same time seem like another lifetime?


seven years ago tonight, he was fast asleep in my belly.


Seven seconds, seven minutes, seven hours, seven days, seven weeks, seven months, seven years.

(loving you all the while.)


 you are a miracle.

an absolute joy.


all of the wonderful things that make a seven year old boy,

rolled up into one beautiful little man.


Sebastian Anthony,

I remember every minute of the afternoon you were born.

I remember the fear of  new motherhood.

I remember the softness of your skin and the light in your eyes.

I remember the rise and fall of my contractions and the intensity of your arrival.

I remember the weight of your tiny body on my chest when the doctor placed you on top of me.

(you are an angel.)

 I would do it over again and again to have you here with me now.


 i love you.

happy birthday honey.

st.nick

yesterday afternoon, we paid our yearly visit to old saint nick.

(hello santa.)

same santa house we have visited since Sebastian's first Christmas in 2004...

(that's fun.)

 These little faces are what this holiday is all about.
say cheese santa!

After all of the their secrets were shared with the jolly old elf, 

we headed to the fountain where they tossed their remaining wishes into the water...

ker-plunk. 
And just like that, the boys are ready for Christmas eve, 
when Santa takes his trip and rewards good little boys
 for a years worth of wonderful behavior.

Sebastian's Kindergarten Graduation

Well, it's official. Summer vacation has begun and Sebastian is on his way to the first grade.
We decided to make yesterday a slow, drawn-out celebration for our boy.
Homemade cinnamon rolls, sun flowers, a lovely graduation ceremony amongst all of his classmates
 and a slide into first grade...
 An outdoor dinner, loved filled cupcakes and a steamy mug of hot chocolate.  
Papa and I ended the night with a well deserved glass of wine 
and a reflective fireside conversation.
What a perfect way to celebrate the evolution of our sweet Kindergarten graduate.
Momma is so proud of her boy.
