Our baby boy celebrated his LUCKY 7th birthday on March 1st. Seven feels like a real shift out of little boy territory with Silas (which means forever for us). He is in first grade, reads, does math, and converses like an older kid now. He is such a sweet boy and continues to make friends easily. In my experience raising kids there are a lot of big emotions that come around age seven, and Silas is no exception. We have battles we never had before and he tests us in ways he didn’t before, but he remains our Sunny Si. He is proud of this moniker, and we are glad for it. He is an optimist, sees the bright side of things, and is hopeful. I think these qualities add tenacity, and I can’t wait to see what he does in the coming years!
At seven, Silas is certain he wants to be an engineer when he grows up. He is one of the most curious (and talkative) people I know. He loves Legos, building and engineering sets, art, music, Christmas, and friends. He hates potatoes.
Silas requested another party at Kidz Bounce, so we decided to invite his whole class. Almost the whole class came! This meant a lot of Thank You’s to write, but we had a great time celebrating!
Happy birthday, Silas Tristan. We love you to the moon and back!
