Happy 3rd Birthday, Jude!

Dear Jude,

I cannot believe that this is the fourth July 16th that we've celebrated you!
July 16th, 2010 - sweet newborn Jude

July 16th, 2011 - one year old Jude

July 16th, 2012 - two year old Jude

July 16th, 2013 - my precious THREE year old Jude! So big!

Every year, we love you with all of our hearts, and then the next year we somehow love you more. I have no doubt that this will continue to be the case forever. You're the sweetest, happiest, most loving, full-of-personality, expressive little boy I've ever seen. You bring so much joy to our family, and we're SO glad you are ours. Your daddy and I spend a lot of time talking about how cute and precious you are and laughing about the funny things that you say, and we can't even talk about you without smiling.

I thank God that He saw fit to bless our family with a little boy. And not just any little boy -- with YOU, Jude Anderson Howie! We love you SO much!!

Happy Birthday, sweet boy.

I know all the pictures (except the first one) are from birthday parties, but it kind of cracks me up that he's eating in all of them. Like he's a constant eater.
