Happy 8th Birthday Graham!

I'm not sure how
 we've got an 8 year old today?
 I know everyone says this, but it feels like I just brought him home from the hospital!
 I prayed that he would get his daddy's dimple.  And he got the sweetest personality to go with it.
 He is absolutely his fathers son.  He wants to know how anything and everything works.  He always has a solution to fix something or make any situation go differently.  We call him "The Negotiator." or Grahamie, Grambuncious, Grammer or Grahamaroo.
 He is optimistic, terrific at math and expert Lego builder.  He loves school and being with friends.  He can also tell a side splitting knock knock joke. LOTS of them.
 He is becoming this amazing independent young man.  There is nothing baby about him anymore and that makes me sad.  Thankfully he still lets me give him lots of hugs and kisses still.
 He has a lot of big changes coming up in his life, he is excited to be baptized and start Cub Scouts.
 He looks so cute in a tie too. 
Happy 8th Birthday Graham!!! 
I'm so glad you are a part of our family and that you choose me to be your mom.  You are one amazing young man and I hope you have the happiest of birthdays!!
