Happy Birthday, Seth!

I am SO many posts behind on the blog but I can’t let this day go by without wishing our sweet second born a Happy Birthday!  I can’t believe he is 7.  He came into this world without much fuss (compared to his two brothers) and continues to be our most laid back child.  It is a joke in our house that Seth somehow manages to turn his birthday into a birthday week.  He loves to celebrate and is constantly coming up with ways to draw out his birthday.  He had a birthday party yesterday, opened his presents this morning, had cupcakes at lunch at school, and is going to see the Lego Movie tonight.  He has also requested a special restaurant this weekend (Great Wall of China) and donuts for breakfast tomorrow.  🙂

Seven things about Seth on his 7th birthday:

  • He loves music.  He loves to ride with Zach so they can listen to the music on Zach’s phone.  He likes all kinds of music and loves to sing along! I would say his favorite song this past year was “Cruise.”  He even has a song that he requests before baseball games to get him pumped up.  So funny!
  • He has loved playing basketball this winter.  He always gives it his best and tries really hard.  He would walk around the house all day dribbling a basketball if I would let him.
  • He is still in love with his little sister.  He loves to help put her to bed and is very protective of her. He is a fantastic big brother.  I keep waiting for the “newness” to wear off but I think this relationship is here to stay!
  • Seth is a night-owl and an early riser.  Of all my kids, he requires the least amount of sleep.  He is the last to go to bed and the first awake every morning!
  • He is still SO picky!  He eats very little and does not try new foods.  He gets the SAME lunch every single day.
  • He worries about bad things happening.  We have to say a special prayer most nights that there won’t be a fire in our house.  After we saw the movie, Frozen, he was scared that Zach and I would die on a boat like Anna’s parents.  He wakes up several nights with bad dreams and has a really hard time falling asleep again.  Nighttime makes him very anxious. 😦
  • He is still our funny man.  He loves to be silly.

Happy Birthday, sweet boy!!
