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!
