Happy 5th Birthday Gideon!

My little man is FIVE!

You are so excited to have mommy start teaching you when school starts! My newest Kindergartener :)

You woke up this morning talking about birthdays and balloons. You chose caramel chocolate cake and caramel ice cream for your party!

You were born in the wee hours of the morning after a very quick delivery. I can still remember holding you in the dimness of our hospital room, rocking you, as you slept on my chest. I remember your smallness and your sweetness.

I love watching you grow and learn. You are always full of surprises and there is never a dull moment when you around.

I love watching you sing hymns to Jesus...and I love hearing you sing your loudest "Holy Holy Holy". It doesn't even matter if you don't know all the words...cause you just want to sing!

I love you my Gideon, and mommy couldn't imagine her life without you in it! I thank God for you every day. I pray that through the working of the Holy Spirit, your heart be transformed by His grace.

You are a very special boy, and I hope you enjoy your special day today!
