Ford is THREE!


Oh my gosh I am not gonna lie. My heart is all over the place as I type this post. I am so excited and happy to celebrate my big 3 year old boy but kind of mourning the fact that baby hood is GONE. I mean, Ford really hasn't been a baby for a long time... he's been potty trained over a year, talks like  5th grader, and isn't exactly baby sized but something about 3 feels so different. So old. We are in a really good stage with Ford right now. Terrible 2's didn't hit us too hard so I am hoping that the Three-nager in him is mild too. If you have ever been around Ford in real life your heart was probably stolen in an instant. He is so kind, gentle, sweet, emotional, funny, goofy, and lovey. He is such a typical first born which I love. He follows the rules, listens, and obeys (I know I'll be singing a different tune with Lucy ha!). He is sensitive and snuggly, sometimes I hold him and just think about how happy he will make a woman one day. He is starting to become a lot more imaginative, which is saying a lot for him because he is very literal. He has such an engineers brain. He loves building things, fixing things, solving problems, and helping us do every day tasks. We got him this kids service car station for his birthday where you can change brake pads, oil, flat tires...I know he and Jon are going to have a blast! 

Ford is an incredible big brother and I've always thought that he'd be perfect for a bunch of little sisters... God is cool. He talks about his new baby sister all the time and tells me he wants to feed her bottles all by himself. He loves doing things by himself... brushing his teeth, going to the bathroom, showering. Gosh I feel like I am going to blink and he'll be helping me reach things in the tall cabinets. I can't even put into words how much I love my son. Something I pray for him every day is that God would use him to do something big. It is a scary prayer to pray because I know there will be a day where Ford leaves the nest but I trust Him. Ford was named after Nehemiah who was brave, dedicated, and obedient to God's calling on His life. Will God call Ford to go on mission in a 3rd world country? Or will He call him ministry? To book writing? To adoption? To justice for sex trafficking victims? 3 year old Ford has so many talents and such a big voice that I know 23 and 33 and 43 year old Ford will be incredible. 

Today we plan on going to Chuck E Cheese and then out to dinner with our family to celebrate our big boy. Oh I just love him!

Now for some fun, Ford over the years.

Ruthie,

As a longtime fan of your blog, you simply amaze me w/your birthday presents for both Ford and Lucy. Your intuition shows how close you and Jon are to both of your little ones. I hope you're still around when we become grandparents; I'm going to need your insight and knowledge. You're awesome! Bren

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
