Today is William's fifth birthday. I absolutely can not believe it! He came up to our bed this morning and we tickled him, loved on him and just played. And at the same time I cried the whole time. Five years ago, his birth brought a lot of healing to my life. I made major changes within me that early morning when he made his entrance. After my last birth (Esther), I had some wounds from the unexpected c-section and having my birth plan go screwy. So, with William's birth...it went so smoothly and beautifully. And I didn't want him born on April fool's day...so I believe God honored that and had him born at 1:03 in the morning on the 2nd! God is so awesome.
As for my boy-He is the most amazing child. As a baby, he was the fussiest of all my kids and he was very demanding. I thought that it would lessen as he got older...but that hasn't changed. He is just as demanding...loud...rough...tough...he is all boy!!! He talks continuously...he climbs everything...he jumps off anything he climbs...he is the picture of what you expect a boy to be. But at the same time, he is the most sensitive of my kids. He cries easily, has his feelings hurt fast, and at the same time he is so sweet. He tells me all the time that I am pretty...he loves to hold my hand and to sit on my lap. He is going to be a grand husband one day.
I love this boy so much!!! He brings so much joy to my life...from the first moment I saw him with tears flowing. I am honored that God allowed me to be the mother to him. He is a mixture of sugar and spice. I know that God has so much for him...I am excited to see the road that God has for his life. Happy Birthday William!! Yeah, Five!!!!

This girl has been caught taking selfies on our cameras. We don't realize she has taken them until we look at our phones. She is so cute...and so preteen. As we are winding down the teen years with Bryn...we are in the homestretch, we see several more beckoning. Caleb will be 13 in one month and Esther is 11...and she is just bursting to be a teenager. She still has that softness of a little girl, but we keep on seeing glimmers in her life that are totally "TEEN." The entrance of selfies is a prime example. Love it. She has always been our quiet, keep to yourself girl...but all of a sudden she is becoming a social butterfly. Lots of friends...texting them on her tablet ( you should have seen my face when she sent me her first text)...small temper tantrums. It's in the mix..and Matt and I feel a little more prepared this time. We have some experience...we know what to expect...what to pay attention to and what to just ignore. By time we are done with this load of kid…
Who knew...16 years ago this journey would look like this? Sixteen years ago these kids weren't even alive...lol. Our oldest actually took the picture, as she was on her way to class at college. Now, truth be told...this picture took several times to take. No, we weren't waiting for any babies to smile...just for my youngest, yes my 10 year old, to get himself together. He still has a funky look on his face, but I will take it. Not everyone is happy all the time. And one day we will laugh at this picture and all of Judah's antics. These treasures have made this journey incredibly difficult, but it's been worth every step. I am so blessed to be their mom. And glad that I get to be their mom. Blessings on this next year!
