Happy 9th Birthday Daniel!

Oh my has it been 9 years? Where has the time gone? I can't believe my baby is almost in the double digits. Daniel, Daniel, Daniel...what can I say? He was born just a few short months before our country changed forever. He has never known life without war in it. He has had to endure so much in his short life, bidding his daddy goodbye time and time again. He is so resilient and strong and such an example.

He is your typical youngest sibling in that he bickers with his brothers, he still cries when he gets hurts and he loves to snuggle when the mood strikes him.

I love to kiss his forehead because it still feels like a newborn baby forehead, so soft.

We continue to feel blessed year after year with Daniel in our lives. To think that at one point in time, we though we were content with two little boys. I feel grateful that Daniel was determined to join our family because I just can't imagine him not being here to make me smile day after day.

Happy Birthday sweet boy!
