~*7 Round 1*~

Duuuuude! He's turning 7!

He was 3 when we heard about him and committed to coming to get him. I still cannot fathom that....he was 3! He's only been home a year (and some change)! That jump from 3 to 7 just seems so huge. 

That's the thing about international adoption the waits are so long and the paperwork is ginormous. You commit when they are wee ones and by the time all parties agree on the terms and conditions they are no longer wittle.

Dalton decided this year for his birthday he wanted a marble cake and yellow frosting with flowers, a snowman and a shoushone (bear)....a mishmash of all things Dalton!



 O'Dell family tradition is to have it the next morning for breakfast and thus we polished off this sucker the next morning!

He had a great time but missed seeing Aunt Rachey and the cuzins!
 
Analina's face of stone....big feelings because its not our birthday, yet.


My little ole man looking over his glasses.

Donovan finding something to do.

She brought those big feelings to me and sought out me out, great job, sweetie!

Smiley birthday boy!

Reading his cards.

Stone face but glad to have mom's lap.

Always getting into stuff...



Next up to turn 7? Ana-banana!

Proverbs 23:25
May your father and mother rejoice;
    may she who gave you birth be joyful!


(We may not have birthed this sweet boy but we sure are rejoicing!)
