Matt had to hold Judah back while we sang Happy Birthday to him. He wanted to blow out the candles so bad!
My favorite picture of him. His face is so happy...and he looks so sweet! Gosh, I love him so much!
And I actually caught him blowing out the candles...puffy cheeks and all!
My title is just quoting what the kids have been saying for the past few days. Today, Judah turns three years old...yes, I said it...3!!!! Can't believe it! Today, we had a wonderful celebration at the beach with friends and family. Sadly, nobody brought a camera and the camera we bought had the batteries die. So, there aren't any pictures marking the event....just lots of great memories. We spent five hours at the beach...swimming, sunning and just hanging out. The kids built a million sand castles and ran from the water to our spot over and over again. What a perfect day. I am posting the pictures of him as we had a bit of cake this afternoon when we got home. We love you Judah! Happy Happy Birthday!!!!!

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!
