Happy Birthday Monkey!

I can't believe that it was 1 year ago today that Jet was born. To our surprise, he arrived 4 weeks early yet still weighed in at a healthy 6lbs. 7.9ozs - he was ready to take on the world! Each day since then has been such a gift with our son and we cannot thank the Lord enough for this precious life that He has entrusted to us.

Jet Matthew Sylvester, we love the way you close your eyes when you yell, how you could eat practically a whole loaf of bread in one sitting, how independent and adventurous you are, how you love buckles and buttons, how your face lights up when we get you in the morning, we love how juicy your thighs are, we love how you kiss, we love your two teeth smile, we love your pudgy hands, we love how you squat to look for your toys underneath the couch, we love your joyful and fun-loving spirit; we could go on and on, there are too many things to enumerate but know that we delight in you and all your little ways and we feel so privileged to be your Mommy and Daddy.

Sweet Baby Boy, we love you beyond words and our desire for you is that you will grow up to know and embrace Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, may we as your parents be faithful teachers and  examples of Christ to you, living in such a way that will make you want to know and love Him above all else in this life.

Happy 1st Birthday Baby!
