Happy Birthday Levi!

Levi  is growing his hair out ( a little) and it is wild and crazy but oh, so cute on him.
Today my little boy turns seven years old. He is a precious gift from our amazing God! God knew his story and how he would come to be a part of our family long before we could even begin to guess. We are so blessed and thankful for this special little boy. He is a treasure!  He has made great progress in giving and receiving love. When he chooses to share his love, he gives it and loves intensely. He gives the best hugs and has a smile that melts hearts. He laughs lots, plays hard and sleeps only when he has to.  He desires to be a helper, and he is so proud when momma allows him to assist her. He thrives on praise and trys extra hard just to hear praise and encouragement. He has matured so much this year that we are astonished! He continues to make great progress in school. He is beginning to read simple sentences, has started drawing and writing sentences, and loves math and science. Levi is our natural athlete. He loves to keep up with his big brothers, wrestling and playing anything their creative minds decide on. Baseball is HIS GAME (you know his daddy loves this!), and he is at his happiest when playing tball. We are deep into the games this year, but he can hardly wait for next year when he gets to play machine pitch. It makes us laugh to see his enthusiasm and joy over this game! What a precious "baby" boy we have been gifted! I tell him often that he will always be my "baby" boy no matter how big he gets... that sends signals to his heart and a smile to his face that lights up the room. We love you, our Precious Treasure! Happy Birthday, Levi!
