"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

Happy Birthday Owen!

Owen got this jersey from his Gigi and Papa Joe for his birthday. Can you tell if he liked it?
Saturday we went to the aquarium in Jenks with my parents and Ragon (and her parents too!)
Some of Owen's cousins enjoying a little snack at the pool party. Aren't they just too cute?
My homemade "Cars" cake. I am so old fashioned about making cakes for birthdays!

Today is Owen's 3rd birthday.

We spent the day telling him what we did 3 years ago today.

He loved hearing about our time with his birthmom at the hospital.

It is so good to think back to the first time we saw him.
We loved telling him about how we fell in love with him the moment we saw him.

We were blessed enough to have gotten to see him come into this world.

Thank you God for this sweet blessing that never stops blessing us!
Cooper never quite figured out that the party and today were not about him!
I love that about Cooper, he loves attention, and Owen loves to share it with him!
