Growing Up

They say that when you have another child, you look at your first born and can't believe how big they seem. Boy, are "they" so right on. From the minute we brought home our little girl, our "little boy" slipped right into "big brother" mode. He has been an amazing big brother from the minute he laid his precious blue eyes on his baby sister. He started to do more Big Boy things around the house too....

Hans, we love you so much and we thank our Lord for you every day. You have a great big heart and such a strong, energetic spirit. You are kind to others and love getting a good laugh out of everyone. You are very outgoing and love to greet people when we're out during the day by flashing your beautiful smile and an enthusiastic, "Hi!".
We look forward to raising you up to be a man of God. We pray that you will always know how much He loves and cares for you!

We love you, Hans!
