The Baby Boy is Eight


How did my boy get to be 8?  It’s impossible that 8 years have gone by! It’s hard to believe.  He’s always been my little cuddly boy.  Thankfully, he still likes to cuddle and promises that he will forever.  I will be holding him to this.


It is so hard to believe that one minute you’re changing their diapers, the next you’re teaching them to ride a bike, and before you know it they go and turn 8! I’m going to blink twice, and he’ll be graduating high school.


Judd, You are getting so big. You are such a jokester. You love to tell us jokes. You are so full of life and fun…and it’s so adorable to listen to you. You are so smart. You are courageous. You are strong, yet gentle and sweet. Your smile lights up each day. You have so many talents that your possibilities are endless and I am so excited to see where life takes you. I love that you are so passionate about sports, about learning and you try so hard at school. You are such a blessing to your teachers and your friends.


I want you to know I’m proud of the young man you’ve become. I love the way you love your sisters (most days). I love the way you are a good friend to others and best friends with Jake. I love the way you give generously. I am proud of you, son.


I pray that you continue to follow God’s Word and look up to your Daddy as an amazing example. He is a great a great man of God and loves us deeply. This is a prayer that I have for you this year:

Psalm 63:8, “Lord, please instill in Judd a soul with a craving for You, a heart that clings passionately to You.”

Happy Birthday, Judd!!
