Years ago when my children were young it seemed we were surrounded by girls. All of our friends had girls, our homeschooling circles were full of girls, our church even had more girls than boys. (Poor Sam. Not only was he outnumbered at with with four sisters but everywhere we went he was overwhelmed with ruffles and bows.)
Then in the not so distant past the landscape of our social circle shifted and suddenly there were boys everywhere. Sarah's class at school has five girls and something like fourteen boys. All the babies at church lately have been boys. My sweet friend Lauren has four boys. Our friends, the Culbertson's had one daughter and six boys before they had another girl. It's crazy really but the thing that is truly crazy is how cute all these little fellas are.
Case in point: Mr. B.
Not only is he just too cute for words he has got this really deep voice and the funniest personality. Last year as he was learning to talk more he couldn't say "Pastor Hadding" so it came out as "Passor Heiney". Which as you can image caused much amusement at my poor husband's good natured expense.
He turned three a little while back and yesterday he came and spent the morning with me so we could do his birthday session. He has this thing about apples so I had to use them in his pictures.
He actually was excited about having his picture taken and had requested a picture be taken with the rabbit statue in my backyard. They're buds I guess.
Happy birthday, Mr. B! "Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love."
1 Corinthians 16:13-14
