Devine Nine!

Today my first born baby is NINE years old and it just simply blows my mind! There are soo many awesome things about my oldest child I decided to do a list of all things wonderful about Graham!

My oldest baby almost a year ago. I can't believe how much he's already changed!

  • Graham is unbelievably kind to his younger brother (99% of the time :)).
  • He is sweet and loving to me and his father.
  • He still has the greatest imagination and I'm so thankful that he hasn't lost this awesome quality!
  • He loves history and will watch the History Channel for hours if we let him.
  • He had ADHD and Learning Disabilities but still fights so hard everyday to achieve more and more!
  • Graham can be so witty sometimes! He has a nack for comedic timing!
  • He is always such a help to me when he sees me struggling (either with his little brother, the groceries, you name it)!
  • He's always the first to pitch in to help get a job done.
  • Graham truely tries to set a good example for his little brother. He realizes that he's always being watched and then copied.
  • Graham loves anything to do with the military and says that he wants to be a Marine one day. (so honorable yet so scary for a mother!)
  • Graham loves Cub Scouts and loves everything that it stands for.
  • Graham loves God and asks nightly for stories from his kids Bible!

This was Graham with a cake last year that we got during a visit to the Great Wolf Lodge.

Dear Graham,

I can't believe that its been 9 years since Daddy and I held you in our arms at the hospital! You were so little then and when Daddy and I brought you home we wondered what in the world is our lives going to be like!? You have added soo much joy and love to our family since then that our hearts are ready to burst with the love that we have for you! Continue to be exactly who you are. You are growing up to be such a wonderful kid and Daddy and I could not be any prouder!

Love you with all our hearts, all our souls, and all our beans,

Momma and Daddy
