Happy Birthday Murphy!

It is so hard to believe that this little five-pound baby...


is SEVEN years old today!

Here are a few pics from years past...












Murphy has always been an easy kid.  He is such a sweet guy.  And he's become a great - and patient - big brother.

I remember how badly I wanted a baby.  And he didn't happen easily.  It took 12 long months! And I felt like the luckiest person in the world beginning with the first second of his pregnancy.  And I still feel like that today.   I entered a new kind of happy when he entered our lives.  We are so, so blessed!

And - as a side note - Harlie's dressing's been changed, all's well, and we get to go HOME!  YAY!

Happy Birthday Murphy!  We love you so much!

I am tearing up too. What a dear boy that Murphy is! I gave him a hug the other day at school pick-up just because he's so lovable! Happy 7 years to him and you and Tom as parents! :) Can't wait to see you all later...

I just love these pictures of Murphy (that photo of him resting his sweet little preschooler face in his hands is beyond adorable) and your turn of phrase about entering a new kind of happy when he entered your life. Happy birthday, Murphy! And yay for you and Harlie coming home!
