Our Bubba is nine. Did you get that? Nnnnniiiinnnneee. Like, the last year in single digits. 1) That’s outta control for this mommy to fathom. 2) There were a few times in his life I was pretty sure we’d never make it to this point as a result of his, shall we say, adventurous-ness?
(Thanks to the magic of FaceTime, Uncle B even got to join in on the party – and made his day!)
For Hudson Christopher’s ninth, we decided to change it up a bit and do a family outing. He loves the Phillies – it’s something he can connect with Daddy, Poppy and Uncle Bryan on. So, all clad in a new birthday Phillies’ shirt and an awesome hat from the Birthday Crew at the park, Hudson was off to go stand in line for the #1 reason he loves baseball stadiums….the food. Particularly, the cheesesteaks.
Little did he know, the birthday crew didn’t just give him a hat, they came to his seat and had the whole section sing Happy Birthday to him. He was smitten!
A cheesesteak, water ice, peanuts, and a soda later, his stomach may have been full. Good thing it was his birthday!
Unfortunately, the Phils went down in the 8th and never recovered – but it was still a fun evening! The next day (his actual birthday) was spent at Poppy and Mom-Mom’s celebrating his joyful life. Aunt Steph and his two great Grandmothers also got to attend to sing to him and wish him well.
(So I don’t get in trouble, these are his Grandmoms, not his greats…)
Happy Birthday Bubs! We are so blessed to have you in our lives – your life is truly a gift and you teach us something daily and challenge us to be better parents every day. We Love YOU!
