Samuel Frederic is three years old today! He rocked our world by being a boy, finally, after three girls in a row, and he has been all boy every day of his life. He is mellow, he is sweet, he is affectionate, he is funny–he brings so much joy to our family. He throws things, he makes sound effects for almost everything he does, he loves cars and balls and superheroes. He doesn’t like to be dirty or sweaty, though, and those are two aspects of “boy” that I’m happy to not deal with yet. He is completely his daddy’s boy, although he does say now that Daddy and Silas are his best friends instead of just Daddy. He has stolen many hearts already, and I pray that his sweet spirit remains intact throughout the path God has for him.
Happy birthday, my firstborn son! I look forward to continuing the learning process of “boy” with you as my first teacher! I love you, Samuel.
