Boy's and puberty - when does it all kick off and what are the signs?

DS is 7.5yrs old, and I've noticed twice in the past couple of weeks he's had a whiff about him (BO blushconfused). I've also noticed his testicles have gotten a little larger in the past couple of months. Nothing to write home about, but larger nonetheless. Are these signs that things are happening? Is this too early? Or is this just part of life as a boy his age?

A lot of kids get a bit of a whiff on at this age...not puberty as such....juust whiffy kids. Get him some gentle deodrant...the stick stuff is better than spray at his age.
