We had a special breakfast of eggs, sausage, and cinnamon rolls to begin our day of celebrating. Hadassah helped prepare everything for the birthday boy. Later we headed to Chick-fil-a for lunch and playing in the playground. When we got home, Grandma arrived for a visit. She was headed to Florida and stopped by to help celebrate! We played games in the afternoon and rested a bit. Then, we had dinner, dessert, and opened presents! The next day Grandma went swimming with us and we had a picnic at the pool. It was fun!
Barnabas has amazed us all with his natural love and ability for learning. Over the summer, he really excelled in reading! He was doing great last year in Kindergarten, learning sounds and reading words. Then, all of the sudden, he was reading chapter books! He just started reading everything he could get his hands on! We are so proud of him!
Barnabas is such a sweet, little man. He loves to talk and has a vivid imagination. He is a big help at home with his chores, and he is gaining more responsibility as he proves he can handle it. He and Jeremiah are best buddies and love to play for hours in their room with cars and roads. Barnabas also loves to join in with his older brothers and play games, when they allow him. ;o)
We just noticed a couple of weeks ago that he has his first loose tooth! He is excited, but doesn't like to wiggle it! So, it may take forever to fall out!
Barnabas is playing soccer again this fall. He is on the Mavericks, and really seems to enjoy himself. It appears that he likes the social part of being on a team more than the physical part of playing soccer! There is a teenage assistant coach on his team, and he seems kinda sweet on her. It's cute....for now. ;o)
Our family is so thankful that God blessed us with Barnabas! He is such a little sweetheart, and lives up to his name of "encourager".
I found this link to a labor day post and it talks about all of our first 6 deliveries. Barnabas was so content with staying in my uterus, he was 12 days late! He was worth the wait!
I'm really behind in blogging! It's my goal to get caught up on some birthday posts...soon. We've had 4 since I last posted! Here is a preview of the first birthday post. (Mobile blogging for the first time)
