Jophie Mark is 3

We celebrated Joseph's 3rd birthday yesterday, although his birthday is today. All his family were here, except Uncle Nate and Aunt Erin and his older cousins. He had been looking forward to his birthday since September, Bethany's birthday.
Joseph wanted a "bue" cake, with "bue" icing and "bue candles. we made it and he was so excited! As soon as he blew out the candle's he asked, "Mommy, can I tasted it?!"
I took a few pictures of him sleeping at nap time because I thought he looked so cute!! I can't believe my sugar boy, Jophie, is 3.
He had a blast at his party with all his cousins. It was quite the party. They all had fun. The train table and Thomas track were a hit. Not that we were worried! Joe and I have been excitedly awaiting his birthday. I don't know which is more fun, turning 3 or watching your child turn 3.
I marvel how good God is to us. Joseph was our surprise. I found out I was pregnant with him, when Bethany was 5 months old. I am so glad God knows what we need better than we do. His timing is perfect.
Joseph is such a sweet, gentle boy. He blesses our lives everyday. I don't know what we would do without Bethany's "Bud" and "Buddy". Joe's "Buddy" and "Hoss" or my "George" and "Sugar Boy". What is Jenna gonna call him?

Happy 3rd Birthday Joseph Mark! We LOVE you!
