Andrew is 7

I can't believe you are already seven.  It seems just like yesterday that you were playing with your men under my desk in my office.  Of course you still like to play with men you just don't require that I am in the same room. 

You will try almost anything.  Especially if your brother does it, you don't want to be outdone.  You are so very brave.

You rode powder keg twice at Silver Dollar City.  You were so very proud of yourself for riding each ride that you were tall enough for.

I love your smile which you do a lot of.  You are a "go with the flow" kind of kid. 

You are very compassionate to everyone (exception to this is your older brother). You and Noah fight constantly. Most of the time it is because Noah is picking at you but now that you have learned from the best you are dealing it out also. You are very protective of Titus and never want to see him cry. You give in to all his wants just so he will be happy. Even to the point of letting him use your Ipod. Titus loves you right back. I love to see how he comes up and hugs on you. He knows how much you love him. 

Andrew I am so proud to be your mom.  I love your compassion and the way you are always ready to please.  I love that you sometimes will still get in bed with me on Saturday morning or how when we watch a movie you want to lay beside me.  I know that others, most of the time, are not able to see this side of you but how it makes me smile when you reserve your hugs for your momma.

I am praying for you daily to listen to God's voice, so you will hear him when he calls you.    I know that God will be able to use you in a mighty way for his kingdom.  Your ability to talk to anyone and the love you have for people will help you lead others to Jesus.  Andrew I love you so much and am so glad God allowed me to be your mom.

The fake fear on the Powder Keg is priceless!
