 Adrian, sweet Adrian!  Now you are 7.  Seven, I have decided, is just a great age. While you are big enough to ask big questions, do things by yourself and be responsible, you are also small enough to want to play and spend your time with your parents.

Your most favorite person in the world is me, your mama.  Your dad says you live, eat and breathe for me. You would be so happy to spend all day/everyday by my side.  You are my helper, keep me company, are always watching out for me and expressing your appreciation. You also love your dad and Anna-Kate. Your love for Audra goes moment by moment.  You and Audra mostly play nicely, but sometimes can be oil and water.

Adrian, what I admire about you most is how you at such a young age have known what you like and who you are...and you stick to it.  I asked you the questions below and I don't think they have changed in years.  You love tractors, farming and cows. You never go anywhere without wearing something farming related.  Your play would be considered work to passerbys.  While you can join in and play doing other things,  your favorite is all things farming related.

In the last year, I have been so impressed with your advancements in your drawings.  You spend a long time drawing trucks and tractors, including lots of detail.  Your favorite activity is "crafts with scissors", so you say. You have volumes of composition notebooks with all the tiny tractors you have cut out throughout the years.

You are observant. You notice anything. If we mention the name of someone you know, you can rattle off the make and color of their vehicle.  You also notice what people are wearing and the things they like. More than I ever notice.

You love books. You have organized three shelves in your room to be your 'library'. You put all your favorite books there, far out of your sister's reach. You appreciate literature that is advanced for your age and can't stand things like Junie B Jones.

You are a great eater, with the exception of scrambled eggs. You loathe scrambled eggs.  So, for breakfast on your birthday, I have boiled eggs for you as well as some freshly baked muffins. If I was a betting woman, I'd guess you will be scarfing down three banana muffins first thing tomorrow morning.

Adrian, you are a joy and I love you even more than you love me, which is a whole bunch.

Love, Mama
