This is My Family

Josh is amazing! He is one of the most creative people I know. He creates music so effortlessly. Then he'll decide that he wants to write something and the poetry and imagery of it amazes me. He is the love of my life and I can't imagine what I'd be without him. We have been together since we were 17-years-old and I know that my relationship with him has shaped a lot of who I am today. He has a pastor's heart; his nature is one that attracts people and they want to open their lives to him. He is my favorite!

Elijah is my baby boy and little man all rolled into one. He has that budding sense of independence that makes him determined to do it all on his own. Yet he still sleeps with his stuffed animals at night and wants to cuddle with his mommy. It's intriguing to watch as this little baby that was my first born becomes an individual with his own interests, wants and dreams.

Cora is the princess. She is a determined lover of pink and all that is girly. She is my worshiper; constantly singing songs all around our house. She is also the little mother - taking care of her dolls and her brothers. She has the most tender heart and her favorite thing is to "hold you."

Ezra is the exception. He is different in so many ways from his older siblings. He has taught me that having two children does not mean you are an expert at child rearing. He is shy where they were social. He is stubborn where they were easy-going. His personality is developing more everyday and we love getting to know who he is.

Baby #4 is a mystery. We know that it is a boy and he will arrive in June. We don't know his name, we don't know how he will fit into this crazy family, but we know that we love him and that God knows that plan and purpose for his life.
