Buggy’s Eighth Birthday

As a mom you just go through day to day life, and suddenly it hits you how big your babies are getting. Well, my oldest turns 8 today. I can’t even believe it! Of all the things we’ve been through all the happy times and the struggles, I am amazed we have come this far. Having children young can be really really difficult, I am proud of what we have accomplished together, and what we will accomplish.  Here’s a look back through the years of my little Bug-Man!

Without even meaning to we replicated some photos of them, they’re in reverse positions. I seriously love it though because these boys have been friends since before they can remember, and even though we only get to see them maybe once or twice a year, they love each other so much it makes my heart so happy.

Happy birthday Buggy! You’re the greatest 8 year old I know!
