My Baby is 7!

Hard to believe the time is flying by so quickly! My first wonderful blessing from God turns 7 years old today and I am astounded at the man he is growing into.


Joshua blesses me every day. He is a gentleman, and a "boy" in the best of ways. He can climb, swing, run, jump, play sports, wrestle, make a huge mess and eat as much as me. He also cuddles, reads, sits still, cleans his messes, and laughs as much as possible.


Joshua loves the bible and God. He is a good friend to many, even his siblings and most of all, Adam and me.
He loves the snow, sun, rain, and wind. He is learning to cook, clean, fish, play soccer and much more. He desires God, purity, and true friendship. He is a true friend and an extremely genuine child. To sum up my little love, he is passionate, kind, strong, and brave. I thank God for this wonder all the time. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOSHUA!!!
Let the pirate party begin!!!

Happy Birthday Joshua!!!

Char, did you remember to give Joshua the card we sent?? Hope so...

Love you guys!

Charlene said...

Yes I did Virgie,
Thanks a lot. He loved the card and right away wanted to do the puzzles in it. And we took him down to the teaching tools store tonight and let him combine money from you and from Dad to get himself something he really wanted from there. It is called Marble run, I will take a pic and put it on the blog. Pretty cool. He had the hardest time choosing his gift. But it is neat to see he didn't want just the same old stuff. Thanks again Virg and Blaine. We love you both!
