The Baby ...

The Birthday boy.
The 6 year old boy.
The sick boy... who had to miss school again today. So sad.

He said, "But I told everyone it would be my birthday! They were going to sing to me!"
So so sad!!
But he was up in the middle of the night throwing up. Again.
Poor baby.


He was supposed to have a party on Sunday but we cancelled because he was sick.
He is such a sweet baby.
And I know... he's not a baby. He's 6 now.
But he's MY baby. And I adore him.
He's kind and soft spoken and gentle and eager to please.


He's an amazing blessing. An unexpected blessing.
Our family was complete. We thought. And then... BOOM.
Another blessing we didn't even know we wanted or needed.
But God knew better.


Happy birthday to my precious 6 year old Baby.

Could he be any cuter? What a sweetie pie. Our boy just turned 9 and he's still my baby. I don't think they ever stop being our baby.

Hope he feels better real soon!

Awww... what a sweet boy/little man! We have one of those, my 7yo. His big sibs were 10, 8 and 6 when he came along. Do you know how many people raise their eyebrows and wink at me when they hear that? It's always men too, now that I think about it! I call him the "child of my heart" cuz God knew this mama wanted 4 kids. I am thankful he still sits on my lap and holds my hand and rests his hand on my arm when we read together. Sigh.

He is very cute. I have three 6 year old grandchildren. They are still babies but entering the world.

He's six, but he can be your baby. My baby will never grow too old to be my baby. There's something about the last one, isn't there?
