I can't believe that my little Bear is turning 3 years old today.
It really doesn't seem like it has been 3 years since I delivered him!!
I love that little boy so much.
He's so full of life and energy!!!
He is all boy... I mean all boy.
He hits, spits, kicks, karate chops just about anything and everything...and everyone.
Yet, he can be so sweet and tender...
One of my favorite things is hearing him laugh with Bella...they are so silly together. And in true sibling fashion, they can be hitting and screaming at each other one minute and then giggling and hugging each other the next.
It really is a special relationship that I love to watch develop more each day.
It definitely falls into the category of, "I can hit my sister, but you better not lay a finger on her..." We have have already heard him defend her before...which was awesome!
He also has a wonderful relationship with his little sister.
He can also make Breelee laugh with just about anything that he does.
He also can be soooo tough with her...but I love when he starts singing to her to calm her down.
It really is precious to see how much they care about each other and are concerned for each other.
I love that my kids love each other.
After hearing a sermon by Brad Bullock in Louisiana a while back, Lee & I decided to come up with a few things that we want our kids to have deep in their hearts...
For Brennan, we have these statements for him - and he finishes them for us::
We say, "You are my..." he finishes with - "Bear"
We say, "You are so..." he finishes with - "strong"
We say, "And you say..." he finishes with - "I can do all things through Jesus!"
We feel honored that we have been entrusted to raise a strong, mighty man of God.
My prayer for him is that he grows up desiring to have a relationship with God for himself...not because he feels like he has to...not because he knows that we want him to...but because he wants to himself.
(And I know that will come from how Lee & I show him our relationship with God now.)
I pray that Brennan is covered by God's hand of protection and provision.
I pray that Brennan will continue to love to learn.
I pray that Brennan will enjoy life - and help everyone around him enjoy life as well...just like his daddy...
Loving God and loving others...that is what I want for him.
My heart is full today as we celebrate the first 3 years of his little life!!
The best is yet to come!!!
Here are just a few highlights of my baby boy!
I'll have more pictures of the superhero birthday party that we are having this weekend!!
