2nd born. What a Joy. (happy birthday eli)

2nd born baby of mine, you came into this world weighing over 10 pounds, ready to conquer the world...or at least your bigger brother.  9 years ago, your squishiness overtook my heart.  Now, your gentle spirit and quick wit have taken over the residence.  You are excellent at whatever you try your hand, sports, bible memorization, giving speeches, winning over the hearts of all...God has definitely put His mark of favor on you.  I just want you to know that you have provided 9 years of solid joy for me as a mother.  What a (large) gift God placed in my lap nine years ago. 

Your name means "The Lord is my God."  We pray that your life will echo this truth forevermore.  We release you to be who God has created you to be.
