Happy Eighth Birthday, Connor!

Happy Birthday, Connor!  I sit here in awe that you are already eight years old.  This last year has been such an exciting year for our family and you have shown us that you are so sweet, helpful, and smart.  You took on the role of big brother to two brothers so much better than we could have ever imagined.  You adore Paxton and you are so helpful to me every single day.

We are so thankful for you!  You are so smart.  You absorb everything that you hear.  So many times, we assume you are not listening to us, to something on TV, to the preacher or to someone else and later you ask questions all about what you heard.  You retain everything you hear!  You do such a great job at school and even more important to me than grades, you are well behaved and respectful to others.  You make friends easily and your friends at school like you and have a genuine respect for you.  You have found a love for reading and you can read through a chapter book so fast.

You are funny and you love to make people laugh!  Your face lights up when you tell a good joke, especially if you came up with it yourself.  And, you love to tickle people, especially Paxton!  You love to bring a smile to people's faces and you do it so well!  You love to be silly...especially with Kyle and Paxton!

You are now so big.  You look so much older this year than you did a year ago.  Your lost both of your front teeth at the end of 2014 and now you have big teeth in their place.  You now look like a big kid!

We are so thankful for you!  YOU are a treasure and a blessing to us!  You are the best big brother and Kyle and Paxton are so blessed to have you as their big brother.  You love them like no other.  And, they adore you! 

Connor, always know that Mommy and Daddy adore you!  We think you are incredibly special. You are smart, funny, kind, sweet, and genuine.  We are so thankful for the past eight years!  We are so thankful to get to celebrate YOU today!

Happy Birthday, Connor!
