The Day of Easton's Birth

My first born, the boy who made me a mom, celebrated his 9th birthday on June 30th, 2015.

 This boy is such a sweetheart.  He is very tender hearted and is a good big brother to all of his younger sisters.

For his birthday dinner he chose to eat at CiCi's Pizza.  He loves the mac and cheese pizza.  Easton is a good eater and enjoys all food.  His favorites include: pears, apples, pizza, ravioli, smoothies, ice cream, and homemade treats.

Easton enjoys collecting everything and anything.  Some of the collections that I often find stashed in every corner of his room include: seashells, rocks, crystals, pine cones, rocks, little pieces of wire, acorns, rocks, geodes.  Did I mention rocks? Let's not forget the dried up apple cores.  I don't know that he's collecting those but there is a collection of them in his room.  Every few months I clean out his room and he never ceases to amaze me with the amount of treasures he has amassed in such a short period of time.

He loves to swim and is such a little fish.  He enjoys riding his shark scooter, jumping on the tramp and going to the lake with our friends.  He loves to build rockets out of Lego's, draw rockets, make rockets out of playdoh, paint rockets and just about anything he can use to create with- he makes rockets.

He enjoys reading Harry Potter and Percy Jackson books.  
He calls headaches "headiks," envelopes "envenopes" and bikinis "Lamborghini's."  
He likes to make sure everything is fair and that he is always getting his fair share.  Must be an oldest child thing.
His primary teachers always comment on what a good boy he is and how sweet and kind he is.
He makes our home happy, and fills it with lots of noise, laughter and let's be honest-tears.  Sometimes he can be more moody and weepy than his sisters but that's part of having a gentle, tender heart I guess.
We love this boy so much!
