To Jacob, on your first birthday!

(Pictures to come)


You are a sweet teddy bear of a little man.  You absolutely love to be held and cuddled, mainly by momma but really by anyone who has their hands free.  You aren't anxious to walk because you prefer to be loved on.  You laugh is infectious and your smile can light up a room - but you definitely make people work for it.  Daddy called you our engineer but you are much easier to make laugh these days!  You are sweet and gentle.  You like to clap your hands when you hear other people clap.  Mama and dada are your only words right now, and we're ok with that!

J, you are such a sweet boy and I hope you never lost that gentleness.  I pray that you would just grow up to fall in love with the Lord and continue to care about and love on the people around you.  You are capable of anything and I can't wait to see who you will become.  Jakey, I am so glad you're mine!


To Levi, on your first birthday!

Levi James,

Oh my goodness how I adore you.  You are such a sweet little guy and always quick with a smile.  You have an amazing little personality that just makes people light up.  You are quick, strong and you definitely know what you want (aggressive is the word Papa used)!  You are already taking a few steps walking and getting better at it every day!  Your favorite food seems to be quesadillas and apples although you'll eat almost anything.  You do NOT like sippy cups although we're working on that.

Little man, I hope you are always so cheerful and quick with a smile.  You have a little dimple that people just fall in love with and you have a way with making people just delight in you.  I told you moments after you were born that my prayer was that you would love the Lord and treat girls how they ought to be treated.  I continue to pray those things over you and can't wait to see the little boy you become!

Love you,
