Josh had another celebration yesterday with our extended family. Josh is one lucky man to have so many people who love him! He had chicken (his favorite!) for lunch, then bowled and ate pizza and french fries, then went back to Mamaw and Papaw's house for cake, ice-cream, and presents. It was all very exciting - and as soon as we got home - Out went the lights!!! Thanks everybody for a FANTASTIC day!
As we get ready for Josh's birthday party tomorrow what's he want to know???
"Is the band gonna play?"
Josh and I talk a lot about the two of us being a team. We've had that recurring conversation since he was small. He seems to gain confidence in himself knowing that I need him sometimes and it also makes him feel safe when life gets a little scary. Our birthday celebration today was a "team" effort, just the two of us here physically, but he got lots of love from friends and family elsewhere. He loved having family members call his cell phone to sing "Happy Birthday" to him and when I read comments from his Facebook page to him he got a big laugh! He also knows there's another celebration scheduled for Saturday. It was a great day all around. Thanks everybody for helping me make him happy. There's nothing more rewarding than seeing him smile and hearing him laugh - even when he's laughing at me!
