My Little Man is 3

I have alot of mixed emotions today. Three years ago today, the Lord blessed me and John with a beautiful baby boy. We had not found out the gender, so when the doctor said "It's a BOY!!" we were thrilled. Of course, we would have loved a third girl (and I actually thought it was going to be a girl!) but the addition of a little boy to the family was so special.

Today, we are not together. It hurts my heart to be away from him on his birthday, but I keep telling myself that this is where God wants us right now. Earlier, I was feeling a little blue so I decided to look back at some pictures of Aiden from the last 3 years. Instead of being sad for this one day that we are apart, I am thanking God for all the other amazing moments we have shared together.

We are so thankful the Lord gave us this little boy.  And believe me, he is ALL boy!!!  I think when we get back home there will be some un-spoiling to do after 2 months with the Grandparents & Auntie!!!
