7. 8. 9

Because 10 is almost here!!!

7 Months
OK, this photo shoot was supposed to take place in the ginormous pile of leaves in our backyard.... but as soon as I set Josiah in it, he freaked out...he didn't like how it felt, he didn't like how it sounded, and no manner of cajoling was going to change his mind! So into the swing he went....
and he even smiled after the leaf trauma!

Of course December birthday pics always have to be taken by the favorite on I put in the Christmas post, but this first one is just captures perefctly the sweet disposition of our little treasure!
And he is all smiles for daddy!

I just love baby pictures in their jammies! Jeepers, creepers, I just love those peepers!

I can't resist a few smoochies!

Just this week my littlest prince went into size four diapers. Sniff, sniff. It just goes too fast, doesn't it?!?

What makes the birthday boy happy?
A lot of this...

What makes the birthday boy's momma kind of sad...
Last birthday:

This birthday:

Is all that growth really possible in just 365 days? I wonder what the next birthday will bring?!?!

Until then, here's to another year of enjoying the blessings that come from having this fabulous kid in our home! He's growing into a stalwart man before our very eyes, but while we've still got him we will continue to enjoy his quirky sense of humor, easy going personality, delightful big brother skills, and developing talents! We are blessed by our Christian Eli!
