Happy 3rd Birthday Josiah!

Josiah's Super Hero/Costume Birthday party!

Taylor (Cinderella) & Josiah (Mr. Incredible)

Mommy & Josiah

Three years ago tonight I was learning what it was like to have a baby for the very first time. My little boy and I were learning about our new life together. The nursing (that was rough), the waking up every few hours, the Nurses coming in waking us up, my husband wiggling around in that awful chair that folds out into a so called bed and the unbelievable thirst I had for water. I was so tired yet so happy, I just couldn't sleep. I love you so much Josiah and I have been reliving our very first day together over and over again all day long. You bring me so much joy. You are so incredibly smart, handsome and you already have a heart for Jesus. I know you are going to do awesome things for the Lord. You don't have the name Josiah for nothin'! God has great plans for your life, I KNOW it! January 7th, 2003 began a whole new life for Mommy and Daddy, a life we love.

2 Kings 23:25 Never before had there been a king like Josiah, who turned to the LORD with all his heart and soul and strength, obeying all the laws of Moses. And there has never been a king like him since.

Josiah has brought joy to our lives. It has been fun watching him grow. I can't believe "MiMi's Boy" is 3. I love him so much.

We had a great time. Taylor is still talking about it and Kaycie is asking about "Baby Beth". It was so good to see you again and witness all the wonderful changes the Lord has done in your family's life. Thanks!
