Birthday Boys!

August 14 -

Jonathan is 3! We are so thankful for our precious second-born! He has blossomed verbally the past few months and loves to join David singing and quoting Psalm 100 in churches as we travel. He continues to be our friendliest child who doesn't know a stranger! Our little lefty determined to learn how to write his name in time for his birthday and it's been so neat to see his love for learning grow! He enjoys sitting in school with David and learning along with him as he does Kindergarten! He has mastered potty training in record time (way faster than David did) - I am shocked at how amazingly fast he learned!
One of the things I love most about Johnny is his sweet, loving personality! Many times a day, he will stop what he's doing and just run up to me, give me a bear hug and say, "I love you, Mommy!". It melts my heart every time! God sure has blessed us by giving Johnny to our family!

September 20 - 

My firstborn is FIVE! There are so many things I love about David! He loves to learn, he is fired up and passionate about everything he does, he has an amazing imagination, he has a gentleness and kindness for his siblings that I KNOW I didn't have at his age! He is SO smart - he loves to memorize passages of Scripture and quote them in churches. He is musical (loves taking piano lessons with Mommy and loves to sing as we travel, either by himself, with his little brother, or with Daddy and Mommy)! He is mature, respectful (most of the time!), responsible, and loves to help out. But what I'm most thankful for about David is that he has made the greatest decision of his life this year by trusting in Jesus as his Savior! So now my son is also my brother in Christ! God is so evidently molding and working in his life since that glorious day on June 30, and I can't wait to see all He has in store for this little guys life this coming year!
