Happy Five Twelfths of a Year Old, Simon!!


Simon, we all adore you.  You are a happy baby.  You mostly love to wiggle and drool.  Ezra attacks you with kisses and squeezes.  I'm sorry we don't always protect you from him...he means well!!  Isaac loves to hold you and is fascinated with the ways you change and grow. Daddy loves to hold you, but he can not stand your drool.  It's pretty funny that you can cause a grown man to run simply by drooling on him...perhaps you should remember that trick when you get older!!  I love your sweet smile and your hugs and kisses.  You are becoming a bit of a mama's boy, but I don't mind.  I know in a couple of years, you'll join the big boys in their antics, so I'll take all of the time I can get!!



I thought I'd include a couple of shots of your brothers at about the same age you are now.  Everyone always has a definite opinion about which one of your brothers you look like.  I always just agree with everyone no matter what they say.  However, I thought the world might like to see the three of you all in one blog, so...


This one is of Isaac.  Of course, we didn't have a digital camera then.  We actually used a camera with film, and all of those pictures are nicely scrapbooked.  You see, I love Isaac more than I love you and Ezra, or, I mean, I had more time back then when there was only one of you, so Isaac's pictures are all scrapbooked with journaling and cheesy stickers.  Anyway, back to this picture of Isaac...it was taken with Josh and Jacki's brand new (at the time) digital camera.  I might be wrong, but I think that camera actually took 3 1/2 floppy disks, which we now use for coasters.  


This one is Ezra.  He still makes that ornery little face, and it usually means that he's up to no good.  Ezra's pictures aren't scrapbooked either, so you and he can go to therapy together some day and share about the ways your mama didn't love you as much as Isaac.  Send me the bill...we'll be rich by then because we won't be paying to buy food, clothes, diapers, and sports fees for you boys anymore.

Oh!!!! He is so beautiful! And I love how you showed all the pics of the boys together, they all look different to me :-) Great photography too!

Your little Simon seems to resemble you……… I think. While the two older boys resemble Tim…… I think. Or is it the other way around???

Either way, they're all adorable!

I agree with Shannon. They all look so different. But they all look like both you and Tim! Isn't it amazing how God does that? Regardless, they're ALL precious!
