I spend so much time blogging about my daughter that is not home yet, I hardly make time to blog about my babies that are with me! So this post is for them!

My firstborn - Jackson. It is hard to wrap my mind around the fact that he is EIGHT. At the same time, it seems like a life time ago that we were a little family of three.  Jackson is the sweetest, most tender hearted kid you will ever meet. He loves his Savior with all of his heart. He trusts and follows Him with absolute faith. He has a natural curiosity of the bible. Mark my words, this little guy will follow in his daddy's footsteps and will choose a career path in the ministry. He already knows more about the bible than I do! He loves his family and loves being home. He is so joyful - he laughs all day long!

My second born - Julianna. Julianna is six, going on 21  - my little firecracker. That is one spunky girl. She loves all things girly - glitter, pink, dresses, fingernail polish. As hard as I am trying to keep her a little girl, she is working just as hard to be a teenager. LOL. She has such a natural beauty. She truly is stunning. But she is just as beautiful on the inside. Her heart for others is inspiring. She has a heart for the orphan and she has even a bigger heart for the special needs children. I know that Jesus has planted a little seed in her heart and I can not wait to see what He does with it. I have said it a 1000 times here - but she loves China. She loves the people, the culture, the country. God is going to do big things through her - I honestly believe He has already started.

And my baby - Jameson. Jamey is four. I have to tell you, this child has me completely wrapped around his finger. There is just something about him that melts me. Maybe because his is the littlest. Maybe because he is a momma's boy 100%.  I am not sure, but I could stare at him all day long.  Honestly, he has that affect on Jackson and Julianna, too. He is still trying to find his place in our family - he desperately wants to be a big boy like Jackson, but he isn't quite ready to give up being the baby. He loves his siblings so much and they love him the same. He is just so versatile - he loves wearing princess dresses with Julianna (which is killing his daddy!) and he loves rough housing with Jackson.  He loves singing and dancing. Maybe he will be the only musically inclined child we have. Hehe.

So those are my children. I spend 100% of my time with them. We homeschool, we co-sleep - we are literally with them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I could not imagine my life being any different. Praise Jesus that my husband and I are on the same page as parents. He wants them with us as much as I do. We truly are so very blessed. And we can't wait to have our newest blessing home with us as well!

Beautiful children, Michele. My gosh, Jackson looks just like B-Rad!

Hey there! I got your FB request but for some reason couldn't write on your wall or send you an email. But I was saying how beautiful your kids are! Simply breathtaking!

Such a blessed lady!!! And I love that part toward the end where you said something about your husband "wanting to be with them as much as you do". Forgive me if I messed up the quote. :) That is the thing I appreciate about Andrew probably mor than anything else...he loves spending quality time with our big ol' happy family! So often I see parents trying to "escape" from their gets and that just gets to me....
