ON THIS DAY WE CAN CELEBRATE OUR SON WHO WAS GIVEN THAT LITTLE SOMETHING EXTRA, WHAT AN UNBELIEVABLE BLESSING JONATHAN IS TO OUR FAMILY! OUR FAMILY HAS A MUCH DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE ON LIFE, HAPPINESS, AND LOVE DUE WALKING HAND IN HAND WITH JONATHAN ON A DAILY BASES...IT'S A MUCH RICHER LIFE BECAUSE OF HAVING HIM IN OUR FAMILY.

Jonathan learned to swing himself this year, he loves to be outside with his brothers.
Swimming is his all time favorite thing, he swims like a fish!
By the way do you see he now has braces? Yep, he has braces on his top teeth :)
And he is truly a Goof!!!!
