Happy Birthday Wilson!!!


You are 2 years old today! How quickly it has passed. You are my firecracker - the life of the party! My Little Man. You came out screaming and wiggling, you rolled over at 4 weeks old, and you haven't stopped since. I hear all the time - "I have never seen a child quite like Wilson, does he ever stop?" I just shake my head, laugh and say "you have no idea." You are the first to run to someone's arms and give them a big hug and big smile! You are my monkey - nothing stops you or holds you down. We never quite know where we'll find you next! You constantly have the biggest smile and that "I am up to something" look. You are my strong-willed child - you can be smiling ear to ear one minute and fiery mad in the floor the next - together we are working to control this and use it for your good - I know this is how God made you, but hopefully you will use it for the good of His Kingdom - you will be a leader someday! We are making big strides, I know, but we still have a long way to go.
Silly and Cute!
Always up to something!

Laughing one minute, screaming the next!


Always hanging off of something!
You are my non-eater - this has been especially frustrating for me, given I am a Registered Dietitian, but that, too, we are working on and progressing slowly. I learned early on I could not MAKE you eat anything - you would gag and throw up peas as a 10 month old - nearly every time I put them in your mouth - and medicine, OMG - gag and throw up, gag and throw up - I am glad we have finally came to the conclusion that you are "just genetically small" and are no longer going through a battery of tests and procedures and medicines to try and get you to be bigger, this too is how God has made you - wonderfully! {All this said before our 2 year check up, at which time we may begin again the battery of tests and procedures!!!??? =( }



Cute as a button!



You and your cousin Mills celebrating his 2nd B'day only a month ago!

I love you Wilson and pray that you will grow to be the man God wants you to be, to love Jesus and share your Joy in Him with everyone you meet. That you will spread your enthusiasm and love for life to all who see you. I pray your sister, Emma Claire, and brother, Henderson, will be your very best friends as you grow up. You are all so close in age and I hope that closeness will bond you for life. I pray you will love each other as Christ wants you to love and not feel any jealousy or envy. I want you to know that there is no one that loves you more perfectly than Jesus. Your family loves you, but in an imperfect way, oh how we try, but oh how we fail, every day! I pray, as your sister prays, "that Jesus will come into your heart and you will stop knocking over her toys" (don't you love it?) But really, that is my prayer for you, that you will love God with all your heart, and strive to please Him in all you do.

Happy Birthday Wilson! I definitely think Granger and Wilson would be great friends. If we ever decide to bring Granger for an Alabama game, I'll look you up. Kelli, thanks for letting us get to know your children.
