Happy Birthday Son!

I can't believe you are another year older! It seems like yesterday that our lives were changed forever... far better than we could have ever imagined!


We are so proud of you! You bring us more joy than we deserve! You have made our family complete!


These last few years have been the best years of our lives! We are so blessed to have you as our son!


It has been a joy to watch you grow! You are so smart and funny and sweet! You have an amazing personality and we know you are going to do great things! You are a blessing to so many people! You are loved by so many!

I can't believe that you are not this many.....


or this many....



but this many!!



My sweet little baby is so big! But... you will always be our baby!

We love you more than words can express!

Thank you God for such a wonderful gift and blessing! We thank You for keeping him safe and for giving him to us... to raise for You! We pray that he grows to be a young man and an old man who loves You above all others! We pray that You will help us, as his earthly mother and father, to be the example that we should be so that all eyes, hearts and hands point to You!

I love this post - but especially the picture of Michael and Carver sleeping together! He's a sweet little boy for sure! Lilli sang happy birthday to him today while she was supposed to be napping (imagine how much we missed out on before we had baby monitors!) Happy Birthday, Carver!!! You've got a great mommy and daddy!
