Today you are 8! I am still asking myself where the time has gone! 8 years ago today, you entered the world...a 6 pound, 11 ounce bundle of love and joy. Daddy and I gazed at you with wonder and I kept saying, "I can't believe he's ours! Could anything be more perfect than him?" I remember endless hours spent with you in the wee hours of the morning, and I'd look down at you, this tiny infant, and marvel at the amazing gift God had given us in you.
Cody, you are a still a bundle of love and joy. I am so honored to be your mom. You are a wonderful boy...caring, empathetic and loving. You are filled to overflowing with grace and forgiveness and you care deeply about people.
Your little brother Caden looks up to you. I see him emulate you often. Nobody can make you laugh like him! The two of you are such great buddies and I love hearing you play and roughhouse with each other. Thank you for always looking out for him.
You are such a talented boy. I love hearing you play the violin, piano, and sing. God has gifted you with an ear for music. You are also highly creative and can turn something that I would normally toss in the trash into a masterpiece!
You are a quick learner and you absorb information so fast. You have a hunger for learning that I appreciate so much. It's amazing to me....the way you memorize your Awana verses, learn facts about things, and even teach your little brother. What other three year-old can name all the planets in the solar system or identify rocks and minerals? : )
Thank you for allowing me the privilege of being your mom. You have taught me so much and God has used you in my life in many ways.
I love you, sweet Cody! Happy 8th birthday! May God bless you with a wonderful year ahead and may you draw closer and nearer to Him as you grow. Thank you for being a wonderful son.
"I thank my God every time I remember you." ~Philippians 1:3
