Baby, baby, baby Ooooh!!

Alright, that may be a cheesy title but this post is about my baby!!
Yeah, he is quite easily the cutest baby around, NO?

Before anyone freaks out, no I did not have another baby! 
 That's Branden!
 My baby doesn't look quite so babyish any more. He looks more like a nine year old! 
 Did I just say that out loud?  That hurt, but I have to admit he is still cute at nine.   

It's hard to be the baby of six kids. 
 Six people to pick on you, boss you around, and get hand-me down toys and clothes from!  He wants to be like his older siblings and tries to grow up too fast for me!!  Any other mothers out there feel this way?  One thing that still remains is his sweetness towards his mom!!  I can't tell you how many times I will find a sweet note on my pillow or computer telling me how much he loves me!  My pin board has a few of my favorites permanently pinned on it!!  When I'm stressed he often notices and slips his arms around me and says I love you!  The Lord definitely knew I needed him as my baby!!  
I'm so blessed to be his mom!! 
Happy Birthday Branden!!
And since we are talking all about my sweet boy I just have to share a story.  
One day Branden came to me with one of his match box cars with the windows all taped up.  "Mom, do you have some spray paint I can barrow.  I want my car a different color. I already taped off the windows, that was really hard." 
How could I say no, he seemed to be following in my footsteps.  
We went through my paint and he picked out gold.  Sweet!!!
But before he painted it, he wanted to take a "Before" picture!  Then he said he wanted to take another after the paint job. 
 (Loving it!!
Then he said I should put the "Before" and "After" photo's on  my blog!  
Got to love his DIY skills!!
So here is his awesome "Before" and "After" Photo, 
all photo's were taken by Branden!  

Just goes to show you your kids are watching you.
 They want to be like you, so be something you want them to be!
What skills and ideas are your kids picking up from you?
Thanks for stopping by!

That is one of the cutest posts I have every read! He is a future DIY blogger. He even remembers to take "before" photos! Wish him a happy birthday!
