Ode to Silas








My first born is 6! I can't believe it! Silas is such a smart boy. He always has been. He LOVES reading/being read to. He love building things and playing with things that can be put together. Already in his short life he's had so many adventures. Maybe that has fueled his wild imagination. We see him as a leader and we pray that God will develop those qualities in him as he grows. I never would have imagined 6 years ago that I could love a little boy so much!

He looked a lot like Millie Grace when he was a baby. I hope he had a happy birthday!

OK, now I can see how Millie looks a little like Silas. We pray that he will become a 'mighty man of God'.

He really is so cute and smart on top of it? Wow! You are lucky! Did you lighten his hair in some of those pics or is that just from the sun that it changes? Lea

I have said from the beginning that Millie looks like him - the pictures prove it!! I hope that Silas had a great birthday!

You guys are right! I've been trying to tell people that Millie Grace looks a LOT like Silas. I'll have to post some pics of each of them at the same age soon. Especially when she sleeps she looks EXACTLY like Silas!

And no, I haven't colored his hair. He was blond until he was about 3.
