Our Birthday Boy!

I'll never forget the words of excitement that came out of my husband's mouth eight years ago when the doctor held up our precious little baby - "It's a BOY!!"  Coming from a family of all girls, those words scared me to death, but, oh, what a joy that boy has been to our family! 

Just a few hours old! 
Kieran has grown-up so much this past year (physically, emotionally, and spiritually).  Yesterday, he was teaching one of his new Mexican friends how to play a game on Wii.  As I sat here listening to him translate the instructions from English to Spanish, I was reminded how much he has changed.  When we first moved to Mexico, the transition was difficult for him.  Now, he looks forward to meeting new friends and learning new things.

Right now, Kieran is into everything Lego (especially Lego Wii games).  He loves telling jokes and doing magic tricks.  His favorite subject in school is science especially when experiments are involved.  If he disappears for a while, you can usually find him reading somewhere.  We can't wait to see how God will continue to work in his life. 

We love you, buddy!  Happy Birthday!
