8 Years Ago Today

Our family welcomed

Josiah Israel

whose name means: Fire of the Lord, Prince of God

and since the day he was born he has been doing things his own way

and defining his name

crawling at 5 months and climbing soon after

walking at 8 months and then running.

This kid does everything with such intensity

I believe he can do ANYTHING he sets his mind to

and boy does he have a mind of his own

he has always had a wide variety of things that he has

"wanted to be" when he grows up

in the past it was Plumber and Architect

This morning I took him to breakfast and over our donuts

we talked about what it was that he wanted to do and be

can I just take a minute and say

This boy NEVER ceases to amaze me

Here is his list.

What he wants to be:

A Paleontologist
an Inventor 
A Scientist 

Things he wants accomplish:

Invent a car that runs on water
Make a teleport device
Make a DS (and other electronics) run on water
Make up his own video games
Make his own TV show

One thing he would really like to do:

meet miyamoto (the creator of Mario)

Thank you Josiah for teaching me so much about mothering and for having such a tender spirit and a loving heart.
