My Boo

As I did for Maddox, I am going to take a stroll down memory lane and also let you get to know Braxton a little better. His 4th birthday is coming up!
Braxton Matthew weighed in at 9lbs 2oz and was 21 3/4 in long. He was such a pleasant baby. He rarely cried, hardly fussed, just along for the ride. He was the perfect baby for his daddy and I. We were SO blessed.

Here he is a few days after he learned to walk (11 months).

He was the funnest, cutest, and all around best 1 year old ever. That was the funnest year. Still, at 2, he was great. The "terrible twos" were rare in our house. We started potty training in August and he was completely trained (day and night) by November. He learned quickly and behaved properly. I was SO blessed.
He got a baby brother a month before he turned 3. From day one, he has been accepting, loving, and has never had a jealousy issue. I am SO lucky, SO blessed.

This past year has been the hardest. The attitude, and the "testing," and not listening, and the whining has really shown up in our home. It is not fun to deal with. But, once again, I am lucky. He behaves at school and church beautifully and he really isn't as bad as I have seen.

Here he is throughout the years.
1st birthday

3rd birthday

And now he is turning 4. WOW. That's one year from a kindergartner. He amazes us everyday. He is so smart....and FUNNY! This kid loves to make us laugh! He is active and loves to play any sport. He is great at Tball!

He loves his family and his best friend is his brother.I am so glad to have a big brother like that for Maddox to look up to.

He loves God and tells me all the time that Jesus is in his heart. His sweet little heart. He has the sweetest smile and the cutest laugh.


We are looking forward to his Toy Story 4th birthday party next Saturday and his actual birthday next Wednesday.
Thank you, God, for sending us a most precious gift. WE ARE BLESSED.
