Jonathan is 5!

Where does time get to? It's so hard to believe that Jonathan is 5 already! Nearly 5 years since they showed up at my door with a 7 month old baby who needed a home? He was slightly malnourished, and definitely behind... couldn't do anything himself except hold his head. He was sick when he came, and since he was the oldest of any of my babies when they came, I was glad for the chance to bond with him while he was sick... he was more than glad to just be cuddled and held. I had been a little worried about that, because I already had a month old baby, and I didn't want to lose the chance of bonding with Jonathan just because I had a young preemie that still took a lot of time! It wasn't long before he learned to sit and do more on his own. Today he is such a sweet little guy, very quick to be a peace maker, and he is just the opposite of Kenneth - he definitely prefers to be inside rather than outside! He has an extremely good memory, and loves to sing. 
Happy Birthday, Jonathan! We are so thankful that God brought you into our lives and I can't wait to see what all God has for you! We love you! Blessings on you, little man!
