The 3rd Child

A year ago, the most incredible day of my life took place and this little boy joined our family.

The feeling I get after looking at this sweet baby is the same a year later.  He is an absolute angel (and I hate saying that!), and a joy to have (I hate saying that, too). Really, after a complete anxiety attack when I found out I was pregnant, he gave me nothing to fret over. 

Deacon James is sweet, loving, calm, but assertive. He has learned, in is one year, that to be heard in this family, you have to be loud. He's also learned that life might be rough but he's loved. 

I can't believe this third boy is mine to raise. He is still waking at weird hours of the night, but I smile (after ample coffee) because my heart is so full. 

Happiest of birthdays, little man! I can't wait to see what the future holds! 

Deacon is my baby. 

My baby is ONE!

I love those newborn pictures! Happy Birthday to Deacon! I can't believe he is one!

And when are you coming back here??? I have a feeling you'll be coming back here just when we're heading to Maine. (end of July) Boo.

Looks like you're having a great time!

Happy Birthday, sweet Baby Deacon! I think even when you celebrate your 21st birthday, we'll still be calling you 'Baby'. I know Grace will be :)

You are one lucky little guy to be loved by such a wonderful family!

Oh my goodness! Those are the sweetest pictures. I love the first one with daddy's hat. Precious!
