I blinked...

and this amazing little boy turned SIX! It's amazing how each one of our children are so different... I could make a list a mile long of each of their unique and wonderful traits. It is so obvious that each one of our boys have been wonderfully and beautifully made and we have been blessed with the privilege of raising them and knowing them so deeply. I cherish each moment I spend with our boys and hope that I will be able to remember all of those special wonderful times. I know there are certain things I will never forget... like how genuinely caring and thoughtful Vance is. He is always willing to lend a hand, be a friend, listen, tell you your special, give you a big hug and let you know you are loved. He is so sensitive and peaceful. You can just look into his eyes and feel special. His artistic talent is a gift and he uses it to bless his friends and family... always making a card, picture, or craft for someone. I have 3 'love' notes hanging on my bed post from him right now. When Ozzie was born Paul and I both felt that he was a gift for Vance... that there would be some special bond between the 2 of them. We didn't know what and we didn't know why but it is so obvious now. From the moment they first saw each other they were hooked. Vance needed someone to nurture and watch over and Ozzie needed a loving big brother... but it goes so much deeper. I can't wait to watch their relationship blossom through the years. I love thinking how perfectly God has laid out our family and the special relationships and bonds that have been formed through the years. I could go on and on...

Vance I LOVE you FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER... you are my sunshine and I thank God for you everyday!

Happy 6th birthday big guy!
