Joseph, you are the best son that a Mother could ask for. I love every inch of you. You make me laugh, you make me smile, you make me the happiest Mommy in the world. My favorite thing in the world is being with you, Presley and Daddy. Thank you for being so obedient to your parents. God has put a heart of pure gold inside of you, and I am so thankful.

you have my heart in your little hands,

Mommy

Only a mommy could have such insight and memory for a year full the details of a child's life. Jill it is good you are writing it down, I regret that I didn't journal on you & Ang. I should have made time. Thank you for being thoughtful, kind, funny, talented, loving and most of all a God filled women who seeks the best advice from the Lord.

He is such a precious child! It's exciting to see what plans God has in store for him seeing as he is so faithful at such an early age. Could there be a sweeter child? He not only has your heart...he has a big chunk of Aunt Angie's too!

ps. You accidentally left Royce's name out of the first group picture, leaving those who don't know Royce or Joseph to wonder which kid in the back is Joseph :)
