Joseph is our youngest, and we can't imagine life without him. He is 3 and keeps us smiling. He gets so much attention from his older siblings. He hugs us and tells us that he loves us. When I say, "I love you more," the game begins. He says that he loves me up to the moon and he thinks that he has won. I know better. When I smile at him, he winks and clicks his tongue. He constantly is saying things that keeps us laughing.

A few nights ago it was crazy. The kids were so wound up and could not go to sleep. He kept coming into our room for silly reasons. I finally said in a rather firm voice that I wanted them to settle down and go to sleep. In fact I said, "Do not come in my room again." Joseph came creeping back and said, "Mom, do you have a bad attitude?" I had to smile.

One of my favorite stories to tell is the dentist story. I knew every dentist appointment had not been positive but it wasn't until recently that I realized just how dramatic these visits were viewed when our rabbit died. I nonchalantly asked Joseph if he thought Oreo had made it to "rabbit heaven" to which he replied," NO, HE WENT TO THE DENTIST."

Melanie thinks Oreo went to rabbit heaven. Alayna says she loves you. Josiah said he would share his toys with you when you come to visit.

Sherilyn, I enjoyed reading your blog. I will try to check back in regularly. I wish we could have gotten better acquainted when we still lived in Florida.
