She's Seven

In a frenzy of serious unabashed excitement we had a birthday. There was very little sleeping the night before for the anticipation of it all (a day at the water park with a friend). Seven is big. It brings a confidence unmatched by any other age so far. I think this is the window of childhood where girls just get to be girls. Strong, independent, smart, pretty...all the self confidence and ability one could need.She's thoughtful, spunky, smart, creative, loving, independent, busy, and self assured. She's a total Daddy's girl, but she can hang with Mama, too. It isn't hard to be one hundred percent in love with this kid, and we are.
Happy 7 years strong, Hadley.

  4. Happy Birthday, Hadley. I think it's so great when kids get to be ages that I can remember being. You know the memories she's making now will go with her for a lifetime. She looks happy! Seven is a great age!

  5. Seven is my favorite age...kids are just really cool (in my mind..I do spend a lot of time with first graders who are 7) when they are seven!
