Happy 7th Birthday Saidey!

You're SEVEN! Can you believe it?!

It's been such a fun seven years with you, watching you grow and change. Obviously you have changed throughout the years but some of your qualities and personality traits have persisted throughout the years that make you truly special. Just to name a few: how your curly, wild hair resembles your personality, how you'd rather lounge in your undies than in actual clothes =), how you could live and run barefoot in the sunshine and warm weather year round, and how you fearlessly try new things.

You are quick in both physical and mental ways while on the other-hand sometimes live blissfully in your own world. A perfect example- whenever we are planning on going on vacation and have been talking about it and packing- the day of you will say, "wait- where are we going?!" And we all look at each other and exclaim, "SAIDEY!!" and laugh and shake our heads.

You still look up to your sister so much and while it's either all love or all fighting with you two, you two have such a special bond that I hope will last forever. You are so sweet with Sully and in such unexpected ways. You are overly cautious with him and whenever he is in a precarious position, (which is kind of a lot these days) you are one of the first ones to notice and rescue him.

This year looks a little different for celebrating. Instead of friends and family, it's just our little family of 5 helping you bring in your 7th year of life. We are taking it slow this year and staying in. I was afraid you'd be bummed out that we had to cancel our trip to Chicago to celebrate your birthday or that you couldn't have your few friends over for a play date, but you took it in stride. I guess I shouldn't be surprised as little ruffles your feathers and you can easily roll with the punches.

In a way, I'm excited that we get to spend the entire day with you and I don't have to share you with anyone =) I hope that you have a great day Saidey bug and know how much you are loved today and everyday!

We love you!
