  1. Happy, happy birthday AJ! The time does fly. Crazy seeing him next to his preemie clothing. I had a couple of outfits that small… like doll clothes. Such a blessing to have a growing, happy, healthy child:)

  3. Happy Birthday, AJ!! Time does fly, doesn’t it…
    I think AJ and my seven year-old would get along just fine. My son has a collection of Star Wars shirts, a Star Wars room, and Lego Star Wars are his thing. 🙂
    I’m wishing all the best this year and forever, Mr. AJ! Love the pictures you shared, mama. 🙂

  4. Happy belated birthday to AJ! He looks so tiny in his little preemie outfit! Love the comparison of him next to his baby clothes. (P.S. – my almost 7-year-old loves just about anything Star Wars too!)
