Wow!! 8 Years already!

Yesterday was JT's 8th birthday. It is truly amazing how time goes so quickly. It seems like just yesterday I was calling Nancy in a panic LOL. Oh the time we had for awhile. I could NEVER have imagined what a wonderful sweet boy I would get. I am excited to see what the future holds for him and watch how God works in his life, but yet a little sad because my sweet little baby has definitely in the last few months grown up to be a big little man.

From 2001

My darling boy at 7lbs1oz and 18 inches he was SO tiny.
