This is a picture of my son Josiah at 4 days old. He weighed 10# at birth (and was born at home). He looks like a 3-month old baby here and is wearing a 6-month size t shirt. He had loooong arms & legs, and big hands and feet to grow in to.
Today was his birthday. He’s 13 now. He hasn’t hit his growth spurt yet, but he’s on his way to becoming a man. Suddenly needs to use deodorant.
He’s smart. He has a good sense of humor, and a good head for useless facts. He takes good care of our animals. He bosses his little sister, because she’s the only one in the pecking order who is below him. I am glad to have him in our family!
Today the girls made and decorated special cupcakes for him (since I suddenly and unexpectedly had to start work) to take to his small group at church, to share his birthday with the guys his age.
In an unsupervised moment, two of the boys took his cupcakes and threw them at the walls and floor of the room.
