Henry P. Turned 3

It is hard to believe that my baby boy has turned 3! 
He had a  "Despicable Me" cake.  We have only watched that movie approximately 200 times!! The sad thing was that he was just getting over a terrible virus and didn't eat a bite of his cake.  But he was well enough to tear in to his presents.

For those of you who don't know, Henry was our "surprise" from the Lord.  When Ty was one, we started the adoption process.  When we found out that the wait time for China had turned into years, we decided to try to get pregnant again.  After a year of trying, no baby.  So, we thought we should stop trying.  After all, we would be adopting soon; or so we thought.  Well about a year later, I was all of a sudden deathly ill.  I was weak, dizzy, and so sick.  That was the beginning of Henry P!!!  For me to say that he is a joy would be an understatement.  All of my children are a gift from the Lord but my sweet Henry is our special surprise.  He loves the outdoors.  He dreams of tractors and mud. He is so stinkin' cute and he knows how to work his mommy.  He always says, "I just want to snuggle you", and "I just love you".  And honestly, he "just" grips my heart and reminds me of the Lord's goodness.  I am so thankful that though Henry wasn't "planned", he was always God's plan for our family.

Proverbs 16:9 A person plans his course, but the Lord directs his steps.

  1. He is precious! I love that he was always part of God's plan too! He is super cute, if I do say so myself. And you know...he was worth the wait (you know, of another post....)!

    Love you and Happy Easter weekend!
