Jude is 3!

Dear Jude,

Today is your day.  You are 3!  We blinked somewhere in the last 3 years and when our eyes reopened you were no longer our little baby but our little boy.  Daddy and Mommy are so proud of you.  You are so thoughtful.  We love how you are always aware of our feelings and longing to please us (well, maybe not at bedtime, since you always say that you are awake and you don't need a nap *wink face*).  It is also pretty neat to hear you say your prayers at night and try to call all of the names of your family members and your friends.  We enjoy your passion for the outdoors and all things transportation.  You are the epitome of a boy.   Thank you for always cheering us up with your kisses, hugs and constant words of affirmation {e.g. "I want to see you"(aka I want to be by you) , "I want to hold you" (aka I want you to hold me)}.  We also appreciate the fact that you have a love for things that we like, for example...drinking coffee, going to church, going to Target, getting new tennis shoes, eating sweets, and spending time with family and friends.  You are learning to be polite and share, and we think it's pretty cool when we see you using your manners.  We notice how smart you are, too.  You often know how to operate apps before we do and you love to hear books read aloud and completing puzzles.  We are so blessed that God allowed us to be your parents.  We pray for you and know God has his hands on your life.  We love you, Jude.  Happy Birthday!

Daddy + Mommy
