Happy Birthday William

William turned 8 today,  and I find it very bitter sweet to see my kids growing up.  On one hand I’m excited to see how far they’ve come and what they’ve accomplished, but there is a part of me that always misses the 2 year old version of them.  🙂

Lately I’ve been thinking of just how amazing William and Erik and even Sophia have been through our whole journey with Ava and Sarah.   I’ll be honest, Ava gets most of my attention around here.  And then there is Sarah with her diabetes and all the time that we put into counting her carbs, checking her blood before meals and giving her insulin.

And through it all William hasn’t complained once.  Not once.   I’m so greatful for that.   I remind the boys often that things won’t always be like this and I hope they understand, and so in light of that, it certianly felt good today to focus on William and celebrate him and his 8 years, he is such a neat kid.

willbday

Happy Birthday William!  We love you so much!!
