Three years of Steadfastness!

It is hard to believe that our little Patton Lang Johnson is now three years old! We celebrated yesterday with cupcakes in the morning, a special lunch with Travis at Hot Dog King (Patton's choice), a rowdy dinner at Moe's (kids eat free so there were lots of kids!), and a bright blue car cake at home. This morning, Patton woke us all up extra early so that he could have time to play with his new remote control train before preschool. He also enjoyed riding his new Spiderman scooter in the morning, afternoon and a mile loop tonight. Needless to say, he is a happy kid!

Patton continues to be a joy to us. Though his birth was fast and furious, (Travis almost delivered him on the side of Highway 25, but did end up catching him as soon as we arrived at the hospital as my midwife was not there yet!) Patton has continued to live up to his name's meaning...Steadfast. He has a funny little sense of humor, is a cuddler, loves to play with his sister, enjoys reading time, has a caring heart that apologizes for things that are not even his fault, and feels his emotions deeply. I am grateful for his place in our family and feel privileged to watch him grow in God's grace.

"Therefore, my beloved Patton, be steadfast, abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain." 1 Cor 15:58
