This boy has my heart. And that heart is breaking just a little tiny bit today because he turned three. Three! I never understood why some mothers would have a hard time with their children growing up. Isn't that the point, I would think? But oh! Now I understand. It must be because he is my last, that I am holding on so tightly to his smallness.

When we have family prayer at the end of the day, everyone fights over who gets to hug him good night first. When we sit down for dinner, everyone races to get the chair next to his. His happiness is like the brightest, sunniest day.

Oh Elliot, we love you so!


  1. Happy Birthday to him! I hope he had a nice day. I feel the same about my "baby"...almost 5! *sniff*

  2. Wow, three!! I remember reading your blog when he was born. Happy belated birthday xxxx
