Nine years ago today, this sweet boy came into our lives…
…and it was love at first sight.
Today’s the day that we celebrate the birth of the ROCK STAR of our fam 🙂 .
It’s a joke around here that the three girls were so prayed for before we had them. I prayed for two years that I would get pregnant with Kensington. I prayed for over four years about adopting Ashby and then another 18 months of prayer for Madeley. But Smith? I didn’t pray one time for him. Hahahaha! #surprisebaby I didn’t know I needed him…BUT GOD DID! He was a SURPRISE in every sense of the word. I had no idea that I needed that boy, but God knew.
Smith is everyone’s favorite over here.
The three girls would all tell you that Smith is the one they want to play with. Smith is the one they want to sit by. And Smith is ALWAYS the one they want to sleep with. NOT A SINGLE NIGHT GOES BY THAT SOME GIRL DOES NOT CRY BECAUSE IT’S NOT HER TURN TO SLEEP WITH SMITH. It’s actually maddening because they have a rotating schedule of who gets to sleep with Smith, but if it’s not their turn, SOMEONE WILL CRY ABOUT IT. They all just LOVE him so much!!
Smith is wise beyond his years. He’s funny, he’s quick witted, he can be really serious and he’s always the voice of reason.
Smith is super social and loves school! He also loves playing sports and snowboarding too. That being said, out of all of the kiddos, he’s the one most likely to ask me to sit and cuddle with him.
Smith has a really big heart and loves his family and friends so much.
From those big blue eyes to his dimples, we are still so smitten with Smithy.
Always the favorite 🙂 .
Smith William Shull is NINE today!
Happy birthday, buddy!
We are so excited to watch you be NINE!! We love you so much! xo
