Jack Thomas Balle turned 7 this year. 
You're so fun loving. Here's a bit about you at 7-

Your favorite friend is Logan Despain and that is what you call him, "Logan Despain." You guys play awesome together.

You are my silly boy. Seems like you always have something silly to say or do.
 You just started complaining about homework. Up until now you've always done home work no problem. You also like to make cards for people or draw pictures and color and all that good stuff.  One day we had had a rough spell I went into my room and there on the night stand was a cup with dirt, a little flower and a sweet card from you.

Your definitely an electronic lover. Your favorite thing to do is watch a show or play the computer. Your favorite food is potato chips, pediasure and ice cream. Famous jack words... " can I have chips and watch a show"

You're my only stuffed animal kid. You like to have a few with you when you go to bed

You love power rangers and ninja turtles. You are awesome at playing by yourself with your toys. You're favorite sport to play is soccer. You are a floppy little guy and still love to flop around, drop kick things, make loud screeching noises, jump and flip over things. When you say the prayer you say, "and I'm ask thee...." or "and I'm thank thee..." You say some pretty sweet things. When Emery was being a little stinker to you once you turned to me and said, "well, she's still my little princess." One night at dinner I flipped into my over anxious mode and when I flopped down at the table on the bench next to you, you slowly slid over to me, put your hand on my back and started to rub my back and pat me. After the baby was born, I was holding her on my bed and you sat next to me, laid your little head on my shoulder, touched the baby and said, can you believe you brought this little joy into our lives"

Happy Birthday

My big girl baby

Yes, she seems like a big girl. She carries that baby around, helps put diapers on, fetches binki's and so on..... but don't let her fool you

she's also tried to sleep in the bouncer and of all her 4yrs she's never drunk from a bottle, until now!
I hope she knows that even though we love our tiny baby, we still love our big girl and love that she's a big girl
