My Big Guy turns 8 today!

A moment to treasure. Annabelle is getting Joshua to slow dance with her. She loves that. And Joel, patiently waiting for his turn. Joshua, although not showing it, loved every minute of the dancing.

The years fly by and my first baby has reached 8 years old!!! I can hardly believe it! He is becoming such a wonderful example of maturity and love. I am so proud of him!
A few things I know about Joshua.

1. He will scratch my back no matter how he feels just because he knows I love it.
2. He hopes to be a chef when he grows up.
3. He loves to read.
4. He needs his sleep!
5. He can keep a secret very well.
6. He would do almost anything to make his sister and brother happy.
7. He is all about respect.

For his birthday we got Joshua a beginners snowboard for practicing on sledding hills and art classes through the city. My mom got him cooking lessons. Sam brought him over a certificate to spend at the book store. My sister sent him money that he wants to buy magazine holders for all his magazines with. And my other sister bought him a subscription to Owl. He loves that. She does it every year. Thank you everyone! He was overjoyed by every moment of today. The gifts, the love, and everything in between.

Joshua is more than a mother could dream of in a son and a gift I am grateful every day to God for the pleasure to care for.
