Happy Birthday Deacon!

Happy 3rd birthday to my precious boy Deacon!

Baby boy, you have brought so much love, joy, laughter, and excitement to our lives over these past 3 years... You have taught us about patience outside of ourselves, constructive and creative discipline, and the importance of consistent follow-through. You have showed me how to slow down and enjoy each moment... You have taught me that life is always beautiful through the eyes of a small child and you have exemplified the biblical principals of trust, honesty, innocence and unconditional love. You have showed me that forgiveness is necessary and amazingly simple. You have taught me more about the art of negotiation and fighting for what you want than any school class or work experience ever could. You have demonstrated a wonderful ability to be able to laugh at yourself and impart that laughter to others.

You are a fun-loving, feisty, competitive, compassionate, gentle, sincere, honest, friendly, outgoing, laughter-filled, playful, crazy-dancing, train-truck-plane-loving boy. You love to say the blessing at dinner, to pray for your friends and family at night (especially baby Faith), to learn, dance and sing at church and to tell God that we are so thankful. You talk often about your baby brother Maddox, "in Heaven with Jesus," which absolutely blesses my heart and you are getting very excited to "be a good big brother" to baby Faith Clare.

You are our precious first-born and we are so thankful for all that you bring to our lives... you are an absolute treasure! Thank you Lord for the blessing of our big boy... for our Deacon!

"Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him."- Psalm 127:3

I've been following your blog for a while, but I am not sure if I have commented before.

I wanted to wish Deacon a happy birthday and tell you that he shares it with my son, who is also THREE today! Can you believe our boys are three?! I sure can't. I am going to do a big post tonight for his birthday- if you are able, please check it out.

Have a blessed day!

You are such a happy and handsome young man! What a wonderful big brother you are to your little Maddox and new baby Faith!

May the Lord continue to bless you and know that He listens so carefully as you say the blessing, give thanks to Him, and pray to Him.

Please tell Mommy thanks for the wonderful slide show that really allowed us to watch you grow into the amazing little guy you are today! I know you are helping to take care of her while she rests to help Faith grow. We all thank you for that.

Praying in Michigan for your whole family!

Thank you for blessing your parents so much and being such a bright light in their days. You are one special little big boy and loved by so many. You will be such a great big brother to baby Faith just like you are to baby Maddox. Have the best birthday today sweet boy.
