1, 2, 3, 4

How we love this precious little boy, our fourth.  Do they grow any less special or somewhat common the more you have?  On the contrary, I think our hearts have been stretched through parenthood and we cherish him, them all the more!  He brings such joy.  He is talking, talking, talking, and doing everything to keep up with his siblings and cousins.  I'm not sure what an easy-going child looks like? (ha!) as I think each one of ours are very determined.  His big brother just started reading, Little House in the Big Woods at 5 years old.  His oldest sister has taken it upon herself to plan out jobs and work for herself, and carefully write it in a planner the day before.  His dear friend, and partner in crime, Jules, has always been so very capable and committed to mastering new things.
I am proud of them and love them more than I can say.
He is a ham with lots of cheese!

David has mentioned bunk beds for the brothers; this will be the first time in eight years that we haven't had a crib set up.  This Mama is feeling a bit sentimental... these happy golden years!
Thank you to my sis for the pictures of him and I!           


  1. My goodness, you are getting more beautiful all the time, and motherhood really makes you radiant! Your family is just precious; I love seeing little Saltwater sandals on sweet feet!
