CTW and I have been in WJC's life since hours after he was born. Oh, How I love this little boy(we are kinda fond of his parents and grandparents too)! He melts my heart with those big brown eyes. He has had hold of my heart since the first moment I saw him. As he has grown, I have watched his huge personality develop. He is one of the funniest kids I know. I would like to take a little credit into making him who he is, but he has two wonderful parents that have taught him all of the basics. I can remember the first time he said lawnmo(lawnmower) and when CTW taught him Mamacita(excuse the spelling). I cried while walking in the mall when he turned to me and said BeBe. He is one incredible little boy. He helped lay the foundation that I use as I care for OKW. Thanks to his mommy for all of the advice and prayers.

When we told him that I was pregnant, he was so excited about the baby in my tummy. He told us all along that it would be a girl. I do think I remember him saying that her name would be Fred though. I hope that he will be the big brother that OKW will never have. I hope he watches over her and protects her from the bullies. He is a little bit older so he may just think that she is dumb, but I hope he has a special place in his heart for her. Growing up one of my best friends was a boy and he took care of me.

I look forward to being around for the next 50 years of his life. I can't wait to see him give his life to Christ. I can imagine him playing baseball for RHS. I see him driving a car similar to his mom's 'Fritz'. I see him dating and going to his first prom. I hope to be front and center at his wedding(when he's 30). There are so many wonderful things in front of him.

We love him and his family so much. Attached is a picture of OKW and him at his house. He loves to make her laugh and just recently started to want to hold her. She follows him around the room with her eyes and waits anxiously for him to return when he runs out of the room. What admiration already.

Congratulations to the Crenshaws

Several months ago, one of my best friends from college called to let me know that they were expecting their second child. They have a beautiful daughter and I think their being around OK made them want another. CC is one of those friends that will be there always. We can go weeks without talking and pick right up where we left off. She is an amazing mother, wife, and friend. So now that I am crying, they called a couple of weeks ago to let us know that their new little bundle of joy will be a "HE"(no name decided on yet). She sent me the ultrasound picture of his beautiful profile and okayed it for me to blog about it. Congratulations, I can't wait to meet this little man. We love you guys!!!
