Happy 7th Birthday Monkey!

We got woke up this morning to the phone ringing though we didn't get it in time it was Aunt Virginia and Isaac calling to sing Happy Birthday to Monkey. Then he got a video on the computer from J who had to leave for work at 6am. That was really sweet. I just can't believe my oldest boy is 7 years old! If you are interested in reading his birth story click here.

Let me tell you about this little boy! He has the best imagination out of anyone I have ever met. He could entertain himself in his room for hours upon hours. I like to sneak in and listen to what he is saying it always puts a smile on my face. Though at times he can be deafening LOUD! He has always had a very gentle spirit and it has become even more so the last week. Though I'm not sure how to help him anymore. At bedtime, now mind you he is VERY tired for a long hard day of play, he starts crying. When we ask him why he is sad he tells us that he feels bad for all the wrong things he did that day and then he lists them out. It is terrible for him to carry around all the guilt of sin. We have been talking to him in length of how once you have apologized those wrongs are forgotten. How God doesn't want him to carry guilt because he is forgiven. His heart is just so precious. I am so grateful for having him in our family. I love you little man!
