Warning - Sappy Mom Note

Happy 13th Birthday to our beloved teenager!

As I sit and look back at your sweet baby pictures, it seems as if the time really has flown by. As cliche as that sounds, it truly seems that just yesterday we were bringing you home and wondering if the hospital staff was crazy. Did they not know that we had no idea what we were doing?

You have brought your father and I so much joy and happiness. We have loved watching you grow, and we are honored that God has allowed us to be your parents. We look forward to these years to come. We couldn't be more proud of the fine young man you are growing into. Stay close to God, and He will guide you as you follow His plan for your life. Know that you always have our undying love and support! We love you Joshua.

Oh Amy, he's so cute, especially with the braces! Our oldest is named Joshua too. And yes, I remember going home with him from the hospital thinking, oh man, we don't have a clue.

Oh my! I can't believe you have a teenager. Has it really been that long? We too remember feeling like we didn't know what we were doing when we came home...even after reading all those books!
