So this guy is turning seven years old this weekend:

I can hardly believe it.

Of our three, he's always been our most serious and thoughtful kid.  Even as a baby, he looked like this a lot of the time:

And, things haven't changed much since this is the look I get these days when I pull out the camera:

He still knows how to be silly:

And his brother and sister (despite what they may say) adore him to no end:

And despite all of the obstacles thrown at him over his little lifetime, he is a happy kid whose high energy and mischeviousness can bring a smile to anyone's face.

Seven years old.  Where has the time gone?
