This is the exact question I have heard almost everyday since the day after his birthday last year. I love this little boy!

I honestly used to believe that if I was only a mother to little girls I would not care. That was before I met this beautiful baby boy! He has been such a joy in our lives. He is constantly on the go and I used to think he lacked the ability to touch anything without destroying it.
I know I spoil him and he knows he has Mom and Dad wrapped around his little finger. There are many times I am trying to get angry with him for something and I find myself having to look away so he can't see me laughing!This day at the beach when he was 18 months old he crawled around with his face in the sand, with his mouth wide open to scoop up as much sand as he could. We don't know why, but then again we don't know why Joshua does a lot of the things he does.
He really would be happy riding around with Kris like this all day. He idolizes his Dad and I am so glad he has such a great guy to look up to. A few years ago Kris spent 2 months in Texas doing rotations for Medical School. When he returned Joshua would not leave his side. He was always holding onto his leg if he was standing or climbing into his lap if he was sitting. He was not about to let Kris go again.
How could you not love this face?!? He makes us all so happy everyday and I am so grateful I have had the chance to be his Mother for 5 years!
Happy Birthday little man! We love you, and yes the next day is your birthday!!!!!
