How Sweet It Is: The Mighty Finn is 7

Birthdays are exciting. . .when you're a kid. When you tip over a certain age, maybe not so much.

Today is Finn's 7th birthday. It was fun this last week to see and hear him so excited about it because let's face it, his birthdays haven't always been so much fun.

But this year, it's all about the fun!

Happy Birth Day!

October 22, 2003--Age 1

Celebrating with scones and clotted cream in Cornwall, England.

October 22, 2004--Age 2

On chemo, getting ready to start delayed intensification and 3 weeks of steroids.

October 22, 2005--Age 3

No steroids! Giving his all to blowing out the candles.

October 22, 2006--Age 4

First birthday in Colorado. On steroids and hair a little thin. This was about the only smile of the day. We celebrated again a week later to make up for it.

October 22, 2007--Age 5

Chemo finished! Celebrating Finn's 5th birthday in England. In the hills above Ullswater, the Lake District.

October 22, 2008--Age 6

Home all week because of the "incidents" going on at school, he vomited up his birthday dinner and pie in the middle of the night.

October 22, 2009--Age 7

At last! Your big day is here! Enjoy it, Kid. You've earned it.

The happiest of birthdays to Mr. Finn!! Fergus has been telling us all day that he's 9 and 3/4 today, which is true, I guess. I love the today photo--he looks so happy and healthy. Enjoy it all.

He certainly has earned it indeed! He is just an awesome little guy. I am so glad to know you all, even if it is just virtually.

Happy birthday, dear Finn, and many MANY more!

Happy Birthday Finn! An accomplished young man!

That 2 year old pic brought me back in time...I can't believe I've "known" your family for 5+ years! That's a lot of Finn time, and I've loved all of it (except for the scary parts).
