Nine years ago I held this sweet baby boy in my arms for the first time and was completely enraptured with this tiny human. His constant cries and needs both overwhelmed and humbled me. I reflected at the time how much I do the same with God. I cry out for my needs as if they were never coming and was calmly comforted with the tender care and faithfulness of God's ever present help and providence.
This kid makes motherhood look easy now! You can catch Josiah with his nose in a book, coloring and always drawing. He is so helpful and compassionate. He will never let you squash any living creature in his presence. And WOAH be to you if he ever hears about such a tragedy!
He has got the greatest laugh and smile. It is our great joy to parent this kiddo.
Happy 9th Birthday to an amazing kid!
