Happy 3rd Birthday, Eli!

Sons are indeed a heritage from the Lord, children, a reward.  Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the sons born in one’s youth.”  -Psalm 127:3

Happy birthday, Eli!  You are most definitely a reward!  We treasure every day getting to be your mommy and daddy.  You are a precious son in whom we are so proud.  Here’s just a few of the reasons why we love you:

  • You are the most resilient person we know
  • Your long smooches
  • The most contagious smile in the world
  • How you change the dynamic of a room whenever you enter
  • Your easy-to-please nature
  • The way you whisper “soccer balls” in our ears
  • The way you look in the mirror and say “I’m handsome”
  • Your ability to always repeat Obie’s statements louder and higher
  • Your love for trucks and trains
  • Your intense running to and from destinations
  • Your cool shades that you prefer to wear upside down starting a new trend
  • Your long, detailed, specific prayers
  • Your rockstar face
  • The way you say “stinky hiney”
  • The way you shout-sing like Daddy
  • The way you like to follow Mommy all over the house
  • Your tickling nature for your brother
  • Your observant nature in how you don’t miss a single thing

We love our Eli, “the uplifted.”  We are so thankful for the 3 years God has given you, and we cannot wait to see all that he does through you in the years to come.  Happy birthday, lil’ buddy!
