Two years ago today, we were blessed with our fourth son, forever to be known in our family as the Baby. Hubby & I were quite certain that we were “done” after being given three beautifully healthy sons. Our hearts were full. Our family complete.
That just shows you what we knew! Ever hear the expression “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans?”

We didn’t think that another baby was part of the plan for us, which is kind of funny because we didn’t really “plan” any of our children. We were so shocked to discover that we would be having another baby. The shock quickly turned to joy, and from the very moment we found out we were having another boy, we were grinning and giggling in anticipation. At that point it just seemed so obvious. Of course we were having another son because that was the plan.
The Baby has been the best surprise ever! It feels as if he’s always been here, and we can’t imagine not having him as a part of our family. He is just such an integral part of who we are.
He is a bright light that warms our hearts. Our sweet, charming, clever, and funny little boy is two.
Happy Birthday, sweet boy!
