Finally 15

It really does seem like just yesterday…

And whereas I could go back and find a hundred pictures to showcase those precious baby moments, I’ll share only just a few.  Because while a big part of me does miss those baby days, I’ve learned that life moves forward whether we want it to or not and for the most part these days, I’m good with that.

All that being said, today, our baby turned 15.

And we celebrated the fact that he had finally caught up to his classmates in age, even if just for a little while.

He unwrapped presents and cards from family and friends all over the country and then opened presents from us and his sweet sister.  We enjoyed lunch at the Diner, just the four of us and then spent the day preparing for a little party.

Christian at 15 mostly just wanted to hang out with friends and eat his favorite foods, so that is exactly what we did.  And I just have to note that we truly are thankful for this group.  We’ve watched them grow and mature and look out for each other and most importantly do great things.  And having them continue to be so awesome is a huge blessing both to our boy and to our family as well.

And I’ll conclude this post by saying Happy Birthday Christian, you are finally 15.  Your life these days is well balanced and focused and we are so proud of you.  Our prayers are that you would continue to work hard and play strong while being surrounded and supported by your family and friends.  Remember that God has a great plan for you and keep pursing that truth.  We love you and we are so glad that we got to celebrate you today!
