Josiah is THREE!!

3 years ago today, i gave birth to the sweetest, cutest little man EVER!! our "bubba 'siah" is quite possibly the brightest little boy i have ever met! he was counting to 10 by 18 months, by 2 years old he knew all of the sounds that the letters make. he could also write every letter of the alphabet (both upper case and lower case) as well his name and both of his sister's names. a couple of months ago he was sounding out/spelling some 3 letter words (cat, hat, bug...) and he completed his first ever 65 piece jigsaw puzzle by himself in less than 10 minutes!! i know that i am a bit biased... but this kid is smart!! :) he would much rather play with some puzzles in a corner somewhere than run around kicking a ball acting rough and tough. josiah is almost ALWAYS laying in bed at night with his magna-doodle "working on his wetters (letters)." he LOVES to learn.. we are so proud! he definitely did not get his "brightness" from his momma and daddy:) we were never very studious and could have cared less about school, but he has a lot of the same characteristics of my dad, poppa. ever since josiah was born, everyone has told him that he looks like his poppa... big blue eyes, straight nose, tall and stick-skinny!! josiah is pretty quiet.. a man of few words:) every once in a while he will get a burst of energy and feel the need to talk non-stop... but those "talking timmy" episodes only come once every couple of months! he is a big eater, an even BIGGER drinker, has the sweetest manners and the warmest hugs! he loves playing with bill's "hi-pot" (ipod), he loves "buzz year" (buzz lightyear), loves to swim (and is our bravest one in the water!), he loves donuts, and would drink milk all day long if we let him:) we are so thankful that the lord blessed our family with this little guy!! we love you josiah! happy birthday, buddy!!
