Happy Birthday Nate.....

Six years ago today, God blessed us with our second son, Nathan John. This post is dedicated to one of my most favorite people in my life.

.....when you woke up this morning, you expected to be taller also thought that your front teeth would be loose are constantly making me smile are the only one of my lovies who has freckles eat peanut butter Capt'n Crunch every morning for breakfast are usually the first lovie up in the morning are addicted to building lego houses get so excited when your Daddy comes home from work love to wrestle with Noah have made so many friends since we have moved to Indiana love it when someone chases you like to jump off of your swing like Noah (which makes me nervous) are emotional...just like your mama tell me that you love me more than anyone else still love to cuddle play your V-reader every day are very good with computers can't wait to plant a garden love to ride your bike

.....your favorite color is green and Lauren play cars and blocks together think the music at church is too loud....but you like the songs

..... our family's  homemade strawberry jam is the only jam you will eat have never eaten a hot dog or hamburger in your life kiss Luke at least 400 times a day are a chocolate lover get so excited every time we go back to PA to visit family love our daily reading time

.....your favorite book is "How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food" by Jane Yolen get annoyed when Noah whistles around you are a very visual person

.....your laugh is one of the most wonderful sounds love to swim no longer have a phobia of dogs have a sweet sense of humor and are a literal thinker are the most ticklish person I know, as well as the only person who can tickle himself

By God's grace your Daddy and I hope to succeed in the   immense responsibility of raising you up to be a godly man. 

I love you more than you will ever know....



  1. The beautiful pictures, the beautiful words - all bringing tears to my eyes - probably because I feel I can relate to so many things you said {so well} - even though I've never met Nate IRL. Happy birthday to you Nate. You are blessed to have such a wonderful family.

  2. Happy Birthday to you sweet Nate! We are SO blessed to have met you! Hope your day was filled with all things wonderful!
