Hi! Just a quick note to say I’ve updated this post with the photos below, taken by Bi’s Uncle Hoang:
‘My, oh my, how the time does fly…’
Somehow, someway, and over a period of time which seems to collapse down to a feeling which is much shorter than 7 years, our Jacob went from this:
Yesterday, March 3rd, 2013, Jacob turned 7. Lam and I are still in a bit of shock over it. 7 is definitely older than 5 or 6. It just sounds older, doesn’t it? It may not mean a lot to those parents who’ve been through this stage and now have children who are 13, 19 or 27, but for us, having our first son reach 7 is something big.
Jacob had a good day yesterday. We went to Lam’s parents house and everyone enjoyed a grilled and roasted chicken with freshly-toasted baguette bread with cucumbers and tomatoes on the side. We had a cake afterwards – see all of it below.
Here are the pictures, and below that, a video of Jacob blowing out his candles and opening gifts:
