Happy First Birthday Travis!

It was so wonderful walking into get Travis today. I sung him Happy Birthday and he smiled and made cooing noises as if he knew it was a special day. We finished getting ready and he took his first nap....then it was off to the park for some swinging and sliding fun. Of course the most fun came in the form of a cake. A first birthday cake....nothing can compare to the moment your child tastes cake for the very first time! What a moment, what a day it has been. Thanks to everyone who came and for all the wonderful books we received to donate to Texas Children's Hospital in his name. Knowing that his day will warm the hearts of sick kids is the best present our family could have received. So we offer many, many thanks. He will have other birthdays to open gifts from friends but this year we felt it was necessary to brighten another persons day.

So my dear boy your day is almost done as dinner is approaching. I can hear you busily playing with your sister and my heart is full of joy. This year has been even more special because you were in it. Thank you Lord for such a wonderful gift! We truly love our son.
