Joseph entered the world five weeks early. He did remarkably well and only spent one night in the NICU.
A highlight of his birth was that my Mom and Mamaw were able to be with me in the room when I had him. This was a pretty special gift because it was the first birth my Mamaw had witnessed. She adopted all three of her children and then later adopted her granddaughter.
Shayla was beyond thrilled and adored Joseph.

HELLO Two, let the fun begin!!!!
Joseph you are not saying a lot of words but you always seem to be able to get what you want. You can say eat, light, Jesse, mine, more, ball, sissy, no, DaDa, MaMa, out (outside) cookie. I know there are more but I am tired:) You also love to skateboard and text deck. You are pure joy and delight to my soul. I am so thankful that you are in our family. How I will always miss seeing you grow up with a close baby brother. That's why I love this last picture, the bear represents Jonathan in our photos and when we ask you to carry it to us you flung it up in the air over your head. I had to smile thing of you wrestling Jonathan.
You are a good boy JO JO and we LOVE you so much!!
You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.
~Psalm 16: 11
