Yesterday morning we all got to get up and celebrate this happy face! What a joy Hampton Grey has been to our family for the last 5 years! and what a joy it was for me, the mom, to see his siblings celebrating him!
What is it about the last child that sparks love in everyone. It’s unusual. Infectious. I find myself pondering if we had more kids would he still be THIS loved. If he wasn’t the baby? Is that why everyone, even his big brother, tackles him down and tickles him until he cries, happy tears. No matter the reason, he is deeply loved in this household, there is no question about this.
And so everyone was anxious to have a part in the prince’s birthday party! Sam was in charge of the games, Emili the crafts, Gwyneth the decorations. Mom and Pop prepared the food. Everyone helped everyone, everyone celebrated, everyone was full of joy. The girls helped to make
sure that the parents understood my broken Slovak 🙂 and translated to the little guests as well. It was a great day. There was so much laughing and giggling it made my heart smile. And As we all cleaned up together, we laughed at how the little girls liked Sam so much that they sat in his lap!
Exhausted and legs aching, I tucked the little prince into his bed at night. Sleep came so quickly. Quietness. Peacefulness. What a blessing these children are to us. The Lord was not mistaken when he said in Psalm 127:5, “Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.” Thank you Lord for these precious gifts you have put under our care We are indeed blessed.
