We had a very special weekend camping with our church family. Even more special than that was that our first born son was baptized!
Is there anything more special than to see your child make that decision on their own?
We could not be more proud of the young man he is.
The very next day was his birthday.
He got a bike (a little early so he could enjoy it all weekend and he did).
Sweet Boy, You and your big brown eyes have been a blessing since the moment you were born. You were the sweetest baby in the whole world.
You have always had a tender heart and I remember when you were about 6 months old I could just say your name in a lower tone and you would burst into tears - quite a change for this mama, after your strong-willed sister. :)
I am over-the-moon-happy that you are such an amazing example to the younger boys. I love how you and #3 stay up late talking and how you pack Isaiah on your back. He seems to fit perfectly!
You are kind, smart and have eyes that see things in a different light. Your father and I often marvel at your gift to figure things out and do things in a more functional, simple way. Your dad often laughs and say "ya, that's what I was gonna do." :)
I can not wait to see how God will use all your amazing gifts and talents.
We are proud of you Sweetheart!
Happy 9th Birthday!
