|He loves dress-up!|
|with Sadie and Sawyer on July 4th|
He is kind. He is loving. He is fearless and brave. Thais often describe him as naughty and busy. We are thankful to the Lord that he is healthy and has gained a whole pound this year! He keeps us laughing, busy, tired, but full of joy. And we remain incredibly grateful to the Lord for creating and sustaining his life and choosing us to be his parents.
