roman turns 8.

_MG_8147 .
Can hardly believe that this little ( BIG ) boy turned 8 in December. The time since he was born has gone by so quickly yet at the same time feels like an eternity. I can barely remember Roman as a newborn, Roman as a 2, 4 or 6 year old. Other than today, all the other days feel like a blur of memories swirling around somewhere high above me out of reach. There are millions of little moments that stick out in my head, playing back in my mind like clips from a movie. That's how I feel as a mother. Their story is playing out fiery quick as I to grab onto a few bits and beautiful pieces to play on repeat in my mind, trying to preserve some of the miracle that is happening right in front of my eyes.
The sweetest you see in that photo above truly personifies Roman exactly. He is sweet and sentimental and wise beyond his years. He feels deeply and loves passionately and I couldn't be prouder or happier to call him mine.
Last night we laid in bed together when I was putting him to sleep. 
He says, "I love you." 
I say, "I love you more." 
He says, "Don't get me started." 
I say, "I love you moon." 
and he says, "I love you star," just like he always has. 
I'll finish this post here before I dip in too deep into that realm of loving my babies so much it hurts. Too late, I'm already there. <3
Here's to the best 8th year for my sweetest boy. 


  1. Oh my goodness, lucky Mom right there! What a sweet child. Sounds like you two have a very special relationship. I love your little bedtime ritual. Happy Birthday, handsome Roman :) -Misty

  2. I can't believe that he is eight! Time flies. He is so handsome & sweet & yes... BIG! I just adore that sweet boy of yours, and you too. <3

    Happy Birthday, Roman! I hope that your eight year is as wonderful as you are. xo

  3. How in the world is he eight? Oh sweet mama…time just flies by too quickly. I know that I will blink and then it will be me writing this post about Mason. Also, Roman and Mason have so much in common. Although Mason is only 5 and a half, the way you described Roman is exactly what I would say about Mason. So neat! What a handsome and sweet guy that Roman is. Great pictures!!


Please comment, I'd love to hear from you!
