Turning 7

Look at that cutie face. No, the lil guy, not his papa.  That’s newborn baby Jessup, meeting the world for the first time.  Only hours before he was tucked in his comfy previous residence in the womb.  His daddy was pretty proud of him that day, and we were instantly in love!  His momma presented us with one of the greatest gift that day.  Our lives have never been the same!

Thank you, Megan Hoose!

Today, Mr. RJHH turns seven.  How can it be?  SEVEN!!!  It seems like we have known him a life time, and at the same time, not nearly long enough.

This boy is the gift I had been waiting for since I was fifteen. I always wanted, above anything else, to be a gramma.Family Photo

We’ve all changed since that lil package of joy came into our lives.  Some of us are smaller, some bigger, all older, and all filled with wonder as we’ve watched that lil babe develop into an infant, a toddler, a pre-schooler, a kindergarten-er and now a first grade Lego assembling, art producing, giggle factor of heavenly blessings.

How cute is he?  No, not the bald one on the left; the bald one in the center.  When my hair was red, there you were, J.  I love you!

Some of the best of the best of J’s life are shown below.  Well, those pics I have of moments passed, anyway:

SEVEN!!!  It’s hard to believe.
