nine

IMG_3540

Yesterday was Ford's ninth birthday! He celebrated this past Saturday with a paintball party.  Only boys were invited, so I wasn't there, but apparently it was pretty epic.  All of Ford's friends want to have paintball parties now.  Last night we had a simple family dinner celebration with chicken nuggets and cake.  

We are so thankful for our sweet Ford.  He is our deep thinker.  Always processing, evaluating, and thinking through everything.  He hates nothing more than being in front of a crowd, but with people he is comfortable with, he's super silly.  He is a seeker of justice and has a deep need for everything to be fair.  I can't wait to see how this plays out when he grows up.  Once you're in with Ford, you're his friend for life.  He will stick by you through thick and thin.  He is incredibly sweet with Tyler and his cousin, Ever.  He is SO ticklish.  He loves to be active, but is also happy to zone out to a tv show or two.  Ford is just one of those people, that it takes awhile to get to know, but once you do, you love him deeply.  We are incredibly thankful to be his parents!
