Monkey in the Middle – Birthday Boy!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Amy @ 9:48 am

As if Friday wasn’t hard enough, with my baby turning 5, today, my big boy turns 7.

Let’s just remember what this 7 year old looked like yesterday:

It WAS just yesterday, right?

Because, it sure feels that way.

And now?

He’s Mean Joe Green in his football stance.

Time goes so quickly.

And I realize how ridiculously cliche it is to say that, but I honestly don’t know where the time went.


Does that mean he’ll be 8 on this day next year?

Too much.

It’s all too much!

Anyway, I love this boy and am so happy to celebrate with him today and every day!


  1. My Monkey in the Middle turns 6 today TOO!
    It does go by too fast. Even when I try to really pay attention and cherish it!
    Happy Day to your Mean Joe Green =)
