HaPpY BiRtHdAy Nathan!!!

Welcome to the double digits!!!!

How it is possible that I have a 10 year old - I do not even know!! Well really I do but it just doesn't seem quite right!!  Look at that boy - he's almost as tall as I am!!  My journey to motherhood began with this not so little guy.  So thankful God entrusted us with this precious soul and the gift of being parents.  

As I reflect on this day of your birth my mind is flooded with memories.  I can remember thinking when you were just months old swinging in the baby swing (your favorite place to be) and wondering what in the world you would be like 10 years later.  Well here we are!! You are a lover of the outdoors - there is no place you'd rather be!  You love enjoying the beauty of God's creation.  You are social!! You LOVE people.  You are the child who never meets a stranger :-) you remind me of your dad in that sense.  You also remind me of daddy in another way - you have a gift for serving others  - I love to see how on trash days you will sometimes bring all the neighbors trash cans back to their driveways.  
You are a confident young boy turning into a young man right before my eyes.  I pray that your confidence will always be in Christ.  I pray that you grow to love Him more and more throughout your lifetime and that you will live for HIS glory alone.  I am so thankful to get to be your mamma.  May God give us many more birthdays to celebrate with you.  
We love you!!
~Mamma and Daddy too :-)
