He has my heart

This little guy came to me 7 years ago and I couldn't ever have wished or prayed for a son that I would love as much as him.  Josiah is such a cool kid.  He's fun to talk to, is developing a good sense of humor, and is so compassionate and caring.  When he was a 1 year old wild child I thought I would be chasing him for the rest of my life.  Now he can be on the slightly lazy side and not the total "all boy" that I thought he would be.

 We started the morning out right with his donut cake.
 Then in the evening we had a little bit of family over for some brownies.
He was very adament  that he did not want any icing at all.  So we decided to to a brownie and ice cream sundae bar with all the toppings.  It was a big hit.
The evening was a little cool and with 31 people in our house it was a very cozy and festive time.

Trying on his new gear.

Then we surprised him with his basketball goal!
He loves basketball.  
He has the knack for remembering stats, teams, players,  height, weight, about anything would want to know.  He just absorbs all of it, from where, I don't know.  We don't have a tv so he just picks it up from school, reading, and talking to people.  It's so impressive.

My cousin who I hadn't seen in 3 years came up with his kids.
It was so great to see them and the girls had a "fashion show" for us.

Josiah's best buddy from church.
They both have had their first overnight stays at each other's houses.  
It's been so cute to see Josiah developing a friendship.

I love you with all of my heart Josiah!
Happy 7th Birthday

Our Jo is a wonderful boy. He still laughs when I tell him "you stole my heart when you were born", which he did. So smart, kind, clever and handsome!!! We love you Jo.Have fun being 7, Aunt Christine
