happy birthday, david!

July 4th | david, jewelry

it seems impossible, but david turns NINE today! nine years ago, this little boy came into our lives, turned everything upside down and changed us in beautiful ways.  he has taught us how to love and how to let go of pride. he’s taught us how things don’t always go the way you plan–and sometimes the harder road is so much better. so much more beautiful.

david, you are silly, determined, full of cuddles, naughty, adventurous and you’ve stolen my heart. i love you!

shop our silly monkey wall hanging–a portion of each sale goes to the cdls foundation. david was diagnosed with cdls when he was one day old and the foundation has been a huge support to us! click here to shop.

happy birthday, david!!

    What a cute baby he was with all that hair! I love the way you talk about David and the life lessons that you share … children are such a blessing and they shape our character in ways we would never experience without them. Happy Birthday, David!

    I didn’t remember that our sweet little boys were the same age and born just days apart. Blake was born on July 2nd and our world was turned upside down too….with beautiful blessings we could have never imagined.

    hi lisa,

    such sweet pictures – i am not surew which one is my fav; asleep on the cart (so dang cute); at the computer (priceless); the one wrapped up in the towel (too stinkin’ cute) or the sweet ones with you and/or Steve – you capture such love in all your pictures.

    happy birthday to David – may his year be blessed beyond measure!
