It's Like Gold!

Have you heard of a golden birthday?  Some people call them magic birthdays... it is when you turn the age that is the date of your birth.

Today is Lucas' golden birthday- 8 on the 8th.  I cannot believe he is 8-years-old already.

In honor of his birthday, here are 8 things I love about my son

1. His good golden heart- he thinks good of others, he is naturally kind and really tries to help those around him and he has such a strong testimony of God already

2. His ability to invent and create

3. His musical laugh

4. The fact that he will always smile for a picture for me

5. His ability to learn and memorize anything he hears almost instantaneously --makes things like spelling tests- which I hated- pretty easy for him

6. His sense of humor

7. The way he sweet talks adults and can wrap them around his finger-- but it is done truly innocently and just from the goodness of his heart

8. His love of cars and all things that go- even if he does know way more than me about cars now

So to my first born- (can read his birth story of four hours of pushing followed by a c-section here) Happy Birthday- Mom and Dad love you so much!

    I've heard of Golden Birthdays before, but we never did anything particularly special to celebrate them. Lexie's will be when she's 15!

  5. Happy Birthday to him!!!
    I remember my "Tenth on the Tenth" I don't think anyone made a big deal about it, but pretty much any birthday I've had since 30 has been much less spectacular.
