He’s got things to do and people to see, okay? We had an amazing day celebrating this sweet boy. Every morning I look forward to seeing his sweet face and every night I kiss his cheeks and thank God he’s my son. He is such a blessing in our lives. Oh and Anna and Noah slept in his room last night so they could see him in the morning when he woke up and they slept in his room tonight, too. I love that Eli’s older siblings know how to make a day extra special.
