    Out of 6, and now 7. Happy birthday, Storm!


    The age of 6 has left the building. Our littlest man is 7.

    Today you are 47″ tall and weigh 46.2 lbs.

    Storm-y, you are one super creative guy. Your Lego building still continues, but you have now expanded into some amazing paper creations (from origami to far-flying airplanes) and super cool comic book writings. Your imagination impresses me so much. It seems to have no limit.

    I love that half of your projects you do for others in mind. You write your comic books for your friends. You make origami to give to others. Your desire to give people a little bit of joy [through your projects] makes me proud.

    I admit, because of your creativity, I often overlook how book-smart you are too. You are blazing through the first grade curriculum. I’m sure that if your teacher allowed testing you today on the remainder of the 1st grade keywords and math-hats you’d have them all. You often surprise me when we’re out and about by reading the labels and signage around you, telling me about things

    I didn’t think you’d pick up on. I’m struggling to stay one step ahead of you.

    On the topic of surprises, you are one athletic kid. You don’t let us onto this, but you are good at sports as much as you hate to admit it. Your PE teacher calls out how competitive you are; you are a good runner, and from what I saw last night — a pretty competent basketball player. Now… can you stop grooming the out-field during your baseball games???

    I’m really excited to see what this next year will bring you. Come on, 7!!!

    Onto your favorites…

    What is your favorite color? Blue
    What is your favorite book? Captain Underpants
    Who is your best friend? Owen, Lucas, Rob and Will
    What is your favorite movie? Ninjago
    What is your favorite song? I don’t have one
    What is your favorite show? Phineas and Ferb
    What is your favorite animal? Black Panther
    What is your favorite toy? LEGO!!!!
    What is your favorite food? Ribs. Really? Yah. Should I make them more often, then? I like Brandon’s ribs. The new kind. [note, here I was surprised and dissed all in one go! But Brandon get’s a shout out for getting my kid to like meat!]
    What is your favorite shirt? Star wars
    What do you want to be when you grow up? An engineer! What kind of engineer? A robot engineer.
    What is your favorite thing to do? Go to the Kid’s Club at the gym. How come? Because I make ninja stars or I watch the X-bpx and the Wii. Until you play? Uhmn.. humn.

    Here’s a quick view of your last 365 days (and you asked for this song yourself … even though your first choice was Gangam Style… and said “No way!”):
