Soul Snack: Happy Birthday T!

Today is our oldest son, T's birthday. He is a big, old, and wise (at least he thinks he is) 9 years old! I refer to him as “T” on here but that's not his real name. His real name is like the most super cool name in the universe and used to be unheard of even on google – until, that is, he had to go make the Honor Roll and get it published in the paper – I'm not complaining about that :-)

Anyhoo, this is when he was a little bitty:

This was his first Christmas pic when he was around 5 months old! He and Andon look so much alike, dont' they (just like their daddy)?

And, this is his cute, blonde, hazel-eyed self today – all 9 years of him!

Over the weekend at Granny and Pappy's – she made exactly what he wanted to celebrate his birthday!

I cannot believe my baby – the one who made me a mother – is 9 years old! He is so handsome, isn't he? Sorry, I am so biased when it comes to my kids because they are like the cutest (of course, every mom thinks that though, right?!)! But, more than his super cuteness, he has a heart for God! He accepted Christ last summer and I pray that his love and inquisition continues to grow as the years pass by.

Here is a conversation we had the other day in the car about Heaven:

T: Mom, will we all have our own mansions when we get to Heaven?
A: Yeap, we'll have mansions and any other thing that our hearts desire.
T: Well, mom, if we all have our own mansions, we won't really need them because we could just live together since they're mansions and all.
A: Yeap, babe, yes we can. We'll have to tell Jesus that we only need one mansion for our family!

I was so surprised at this conversation, because half the time he doesn't want to spend time with me in our house, let alone a mansion in Heaven. Maybe he's not gettin' the whole eternity thing. Oh well, when we do meet up in Heaven, I'll be sure to remind him (as any mother would) of this conversation!! :-)

So, T, I know you'll see this (because I'll show you and all) and yo momma wishes you a Happy Birthday, babe! You are the cutest, sweetest, most loveable little man and you make your momma and daddy proud everyday! We love you! And, so do Caleb and Andon too!! :-)

Now, go blow your nose :-)

    Happy Birthday T! I was all worked up thinking I was going to learn a new cool “T” name….and bam!!! Nothing…Just a ‘T’!

    I have a T as well, and he will be 7 soon!

    Anyways! Hope you had a great day!

    Miss Dawn says Happy Birthday Big Boy!!! Saw you hustling on that football field last night. Have a great day and a wonderful vacation. The Williams clan will miss you guys. You’re right Andrea, he’s a dead ringer for Andon and Paul. Lost 2 pounds this week. See you when you get back!
