My Baby Is Four


I wish I had words to explain to you what this boy does to my heart. He melts it. He is such a joy...so fun...all boy even with having 4 older sisters who adore him! He could be spoiled but isn't, he is just loved. He is secure in his little world. He loves to have adventures.

He is learning what it means to be a man...a gentleman at that. He loves to help and be by his Daddy's side. He loves to hold the doors for us - everywhere we go.

He helps us by emptying the bathroom trash and replacing the bags in the trash cans.

He likes animals and the outdoors. He loves to throw rocks, fly paper airplanes, jump off stuff...
He climbs everything he can, loves trucks, can tell you parts of vehicles by name...

He loves sticks...he loves his family. He has a great memory - he has the whole of Psalm 23 memorized! Plus John 1:1, John 3:16-18...

Have I ever told you about his sweet freckles across his nose?

We are so thankful for this sturdy little boy that the Lord has entrusted us with. I pray for the wisdom to know how to raise him for His glory!

Happy Birthday Kyle!

  5. Happy Birthday to your cute Kyle!

    Love your pictures of him.

    I don't think I commented on your sewing post but wanted to tell you how much I liked your projects. The nightgowns turned out so well.

    Climbing the hallway looks scary to me-but makes for a really cool picture!

  6. He is indeed a delight. I love to hear him recite his memory verses. I wish I could do that. He is so precious to us and we love, love, love him. It was so fun watching him have such a GREAT day. He was so happy it was his birthday.

    Love you Kyle

  7. Happy Birthday Kyle! Happy Birthday to you. Isn't he just the most precious thing you ever saw? I tell you I have two grown boys and three grandsons and they have all kept me hopping. So different from the girls. You see the world through a whole other set of glasses with little boys. Love the pics. Love the blog. I have signed up to follow I will be back. Please stop by and say hi. I would love to have you visit and sign up to follow as well. Country Hugs, Sherry

  9. Oh Lidy! I know how quickly it goes! My oldest is 20 - the age my dad was when he and my mom married 50 years ago! It goes by in a flash....I am savoring this little guy!

  12. Happy Birthday Kyle! Kyle is a blessing not to just your family, but to those of us blessed enough to know your family. He is so cute. I love that Kyle will be able to help our little foster son learn some things too, just by the example he sets.
