Five years ago today, at 10:39AM, our oldest son was born! He weighed 8 lbs 10 oz and was over 21 inches long. One of Scott’s first comments was that he had “shifty” eyes. Our little John was wide-eyed and curious about this big new world! He was a very active baby always wanting to be on his feet. He didn’t nap very well either. At just 3.5 months old he got his first teeth. And at 8.5 months he took off walking! When he was 11 months old we found out he was going to have a sibling! We were very excited! At 15 months he went horse-crazy and has been ever since! At 19.5 months he was joined by a little brother, Noah. Johnny and Noah are the closest of friends. They do everything together and get really lonely when the other one isn’t around.
John’s current interests are horses, cowboys, hunting, horses, fishing, camping, horses, bird-watching, animal-tracking and identification, horses, and the list goes on. He’s such a sweet boy and we’re blessed beyond measure to have him in our lives. God is so good! Happy 5th birthday, Johnny!
