I am amazed at how fast time seems to pass by these days. When I was a kid, a day seemed like a year but now a year seems like a day. My son is 2 years old today. He is growing and learning every single day. He has been communicating with us for a couple of weeks now and it is nice to be able to do so. We celebrated his birthday yesterday with his grandparents in the village. He was so excited about blowing out his candle. I believe that we had to relight it about 10 times. He got a couple of books for his birthday and a nice rocking horse (he loves horses, his favorite movie is Black Beauty). I am just so grateful to God that he is a healthy little boy. God teaches me how to love like He does everyday, how to have patience like He does, how to care for someone the way that He does. Emmanuel Christopher means “God with us the Christ follower” and he is a reminder to us every single day that God is with us and we need to follow Christ in order to be an example for him. Have a happy birthday Emmi, daddy loves you very much and is very proud of you.
