Happy Birthday Levi !

Today is Levi's special day. He has been so excited about this birthday and has been making plans for it since Garrett's birthday last month. His excitement at having a celebration is only surpassed by his being thrilled to turn 6. He thinks he is a "big" boy. Momma wants him to stay her "baby" boy just a little while longer. Each and every day I realize that that time grows shorter. It has been slightly chaotic planning a party time during the baseball season, but I think we have it down. We aren't having a big party this year;however, he has chosen to go out to eat seafood and we will have a chocolate baseball cake(his special request). Since we have games both tonight and Friday night, we're making it a lunch time party.
...Now about our "big" boy... It is so very hard to believe that Levi is six years old today. He has made great strides emotionally, socially and academically. We are so proud of his success at sharing feelings and emotions. Although not easy at times, he has opened up and is learning to accept our instruction and to trust us with his care. He loves so very deeply, but is a bit reserved in giving that love out to just anyone.We are so very grateful for God's blessing of this little boy. We love to watch him play with his siblings and the way he just fits in with all of our crazy clan. We have taken such joy in watching him grow into a very thoughtful and caring young man. He is always willing to serve and to do things for others. He ask often to help his momma with a variety of task. He loves to praise and be praised for his accomplishments and beams with pride when on the receiving end of a compliment, especially when it comes from his daddy. Levi is still an avid baseball player and loves nothing more than to be out on the ball field playing ball. He is growing into quite the athlete and definitely has been gifted with the talent to play baseball. Bet you can't guess who is ecstatic with that fact?
He is learning to make wise choices and to store good things in his heart. He loves to attend church and Sunday school. He continues to grow in his walk with Jesus. We are so very proud of this adorable, adventureous, active and sometimes ornary little boy. We look forward to watching him grow into the man God intends for him to be. He is just precious, and we love him so! Happy Birthday to our handsome boy!!
