This boy recently celebrated 6!
A full hand of fingers, plus one thumb!
To celebrate his birthday,
our little family spent some time at a local bounce house,
and also went to see "Home,"
which we all agreed is a "two thumbs up" movie.
We also had a big pancake feast,
because this boy still LOVES his pancakes.
What can I say?
He exudes sweetness.
(And has a sweet tooth, too!)
He has a strong sense of justice for what is right and what is wrong.
As a mom, it's already quite apparent to me
that his little heart seeks to please Jesus.
As you grow older, my sweet boy,
I pray your heart will continue to seek to please Jesus.
I pray that loving and honoring Him will be your heart's greatest desire.
