Today you turned 3! We feel like we haven’t stopped moving in three years. You are the biggest bundle of energy we’ve ever met. We are so proud and excited about the little boy you are becoming. It makes us curious about who you will become as you grow up. Right now, you want to be a fireman and we can totally see that happening. Of course, your reason for wanting to be a fireman right now is so you can have a big, red truck with a siren, so that might change as you get older (although you never know).
Our prayer for you, Joe-Joe, is that you grow up to be a man of integrity. A man who knows and understands the love of the great God Who made you – formed you, created you, carved your name in His hands, and wrote out your life before you were born. You are special, precious to God and we hope that you realize how much He loves you while you are still young and that you live your life for Him alone, no matter what you end up doing.
Right now, you are the friendliest, happiest little boy. We hope that never changes! Don’t let anyone steal your joy for life. Since you have so much of it, don’t forget to spread it around, too.
We love you, Joseph Christopher. Happy 3rd Birthday!
Love, Daddy & Mommy
