Happy First Birthday Joshua!

Happy first birthday Josh!  This past week we celebrated Josh's first birthday twice!  One amongst our neighbours and friends and the second with family and friends.  We couldn't fit 30 people in our home and so we decided to have two parties instead, this also meant double the preparation and cleaning for Elen and I. =P

I can't believe it's been 1 year to the day that Josh was born into our lives.  I can still remember the day well, it was definitely one of the most memorable moments in my entire life to be able to see the birth of my new born son.  Elen and I have truly been blessed to have received such a wonderful gift from God, we feel priveleged and honoured that God has entrusted us with the care of his perfect creation for Josh has been a wonderful addition in our lives.

Watching Josh grow and witnessing him reach various milestones of his life has brought lots of joy into our lives.  From his first tooth, his first laugh, his first hair cut, his first crawl and his first step has been a real joy to watch for both Elen and I.  Our boy sure is growing up fast, hopefully not too fast for we want to remember and cherish every moment of him in various stages of his life.

As I look back in the year I can't help but feel sentimental.  The year 2013 has brought a lot of things into my life, Elen and I finally able to live together under one roof and the year that Elen and I became a family with the addition of Josh into our lives.  I thank God daily for blessing me with both Elen and Josh, and I look forward to sharing more of life's wonderful moments together as a family.

To Josh, Happy 1st Birthday my son, we can't express how happy we are to have you a part of our lives, you bring so much happiness to us.  We are excited and look forward to the next chapters in life with you.  We love you so very much!
