Eight is special - they seem more grown up, I'm afraid! But it's exciting too.
Can't believe how brave he is in those photos - this boy could do anything!!!

Happy Birthday to Mark! I love those photos - looks like he's fearless (or good at over-coming his fears)!

Michelle

Happy birthday to Mark! Amazing kid. Have fun celebrating, loved your thoughtful words.

(And don't tell me that awesome looking alarm clock actually miaows. Too cool!)

suse

Happy birthday to Mark.

That year before they turn 9 is a true turning point in childhood. I'm betting he will have an amazing year.

Dallas

Happy Birthday to Mark - he and I share a birthday...but I'll be 30 tomorrow!

Feather Nester

What a great post! Happy birthday, Mark! And, I want that clock.

Megan

Happy Birthday, Mark! I know that transition too - one birthday I was crying my eyes out at losing my 'little' boy, next birthday I was excited at getting to know my young man. Aside from all the clothes washing it's entailed, it's been a pretty amazing journey so far.

Happy birthday to Mark!

My nephew turned 8 just before my last visit home. I couldn't work out what had happened: I left him looking like a wee kid and came back to find this wise young chap.

I hope Mark has a great day - and a wonderful year.

No.2 is 8 in a few weeks - there is definitely a change going on. Happy Birthday Mark - hope you have a brilliant day, and an even more brilliant year. x

Happy birthday, Mark!

Hope Mark has a great birthday and you all enjoy the day. Eight is a good age and it'll be a wonderful year. Oh - love the alarm clock!

Happy birthday to a very daring 8 year old!
When Jack turned 8 this summer it was a bit of a milestone, he suddenly seemed much older. We let him go to the shop on the campsite on his own for the 1st time and when he came back he said he had a funny feeling in his tummy, and he'd worked out it was the feeling of freedom - needless to say I had to hide the tears!

ps Love the alarm clock!

Allison

Happy Birthday to your boy.
And that looks scary. Even just to watch!

Angel Jem

Yo Yo! Go Mark!!!! Happy Birthday & many more besides (just make sure the rope's tied, OK?)

erin

happy birthday to mark!
8 has been good for us - you will love it.

julie

happy birthday Mark! Being 8 is such a nice age - old enough to venture out on new adventures but not so old that you can't enjoy a cuddle with your mum at the end of a busy day! Best wishes from Amy who is 9 on friday!

Happy Birthday Mark. Your clock is amazing.

Your bravery is even more so!

Happy Birthday Brave Boy!
my boy turns 8 this year too, I've been having the same feelings, definitely the start of something special.

Rebecca

Happy Birthday Mark. Eight is such a good age for boys, a good age for adventuring.

Gill

My two turned 8 last year and it felt like a giant leap!
Happy Birthday to Mark hope you had a great day!

Hope je fulfills all those dreams and has a fabulous birthday! x

He obviously takes after his Mother who is not afraid of raw egg whites!
Happy eighth.

Thimbleina

Happy Birthday Mark - Whoops sorry a bit late in reading this!

Belated happy birthday to your Big Little man!
I was in Harrogate on Saturday and saw that exact kitty alarm clock in a shop window, it stopped me in my tracks. I would've gone in and purchased it there and then but we didn't have time, but I loved it.
It was odd clicking onto your blog just now and seeing it again, it was like deja vu!

love and hugs to you Ali

How special, I to used to feel sad that they would get past the 'cute' stage too quickly...now we have an exciting time, we talk, communicate, share ideas and a passion for the outdoors...yes its a special thing watching them turn into little people...I hope he had a very special day...

Bobbie

its interesting that you say that about 8 ... at my church we are baptised at 8 because this is the age of accountabilty and being able to make your own decisions

happy birthday enjoy being 8
