Look who is 7 years old !!

Today is Eli's 7th birthday. We celebrated it by picking up his favorite food - Kentucky Fried Chicken. He loved it in China and loves it here too. He lost one of his big front teeth today - he totally understood me when I explained to him that he should put the tooth under his pillow, the tooth fairy might come and leave him some money. He kept saying "money" with a big smile on his face. We are very blessed to have such a laid back, well adjusted, sponge of a kid. His vocabulary is amazing and his receptive language even better. He amazes us daily with his willingness to be part of the craziness here.
We all love him to pieces !
