Today you are 6 years old!
You were overdue with Hurricane Rita heading for Houston. I was a total mess thinking about having a baby during a hurricane. Thank goodness you waited to be born until two days after the storm. However, when you decided to enter this world and meet us, you did so very quickly!
Your birth represents your personality so well. You take your time and do things on your own time. When you do something you do it with your whole heart! You are 100% whatever you are doing....playing, talking, watching tv, crying, laughing, and the list goes on and on!
Jonah...your Daddy and I are so proud to be your parents. Your wonderful smile warms our hearts each day. Your hugs are some of the best ever. Your silliness makes us crazy (maybe me more than Daddy)! Your blue eyes penetrate my heart each day!
You are such a blessing to our family. You are an awesome big brother to Elena and Samuel. Even though you are Emma's little brother, you do a wonderful job of taking care of her.
You love tacos complete with refried beans, meat, cheese, and sour cream. No veggies for you!
You like dessert just like me!
You like to bake.
You do not like to color and crafts are "not your thing!"
You can move your body in crazy, contorted ways that amaze my mind!
You still love to cuddle and I am thankful for this.
You like to sleep with Dino and many other assorted animals.
You like to play computer games and watch dinosaur shows. You become intensely focused on these things.
You like rules and structure (sorry...you get this from me!)
When you are sad, you are really sad.
When you are happy, you are really happy!
You love God. You are our little theologian.
You are super special Jonah!
I know this year holds exciting things for you....Kindergarten, gymnastics competitions, learning more about God's love for you....
I cannot wait to watch your wonderful expressive face learn, love, laugh, cry, fail, and try again!
Happy 6th Birthday Jonah
We love you!!!!
"Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path." Psalm 119:105
(you love to have this sung to you at bedtime!)
