Happy 1st Birthday, Kempton Charles!

Dear Kemp Shmemp,

A whole year has already flown by and it has been the best year of our lives thus far because you have been a part of it.

You were not thrilled about being pulled out of your comfy home so close to mommy, kicking like a wild kid when the docs were invading. But shortly after you shocked us with being a boy, you began smiling and giggling. My heart melts just at the thought!

To this day it does not take much to get you to smile.

You are also very active. You are still refusing to walk because crawling is so much quicker. And you have places to go, people to pester. You do stop for electronics, though. You knew how to turn the TV on and start a movie at the wise old age of 6 months.

You know what you want and when you want it. Even Marie's God-given talent of negotiation doesn't work on you.

You have a lot in common with your big sis. You like to scream, for example. And you love to color right along side of her.

 While you aren't a huge fan of sleep, you are a serious snuggler which (usually) makes up for it! You already know how to wrap your arms around my neck and squeeze. And you let me squeeze you for (almost) as long as I want!

We named you after a man who committed his life to furthering God's Kingdom. He never forgot a name and remembered details about long-ago conversations. He had a passion for people. His love for the Lord was evident from the moment I met him.

Since you were born, I have felt strongly that you will change the world, just like your namesake. I pray every day for that to be true. I'm so excited about what God is going to do through you!

And I'm so grateful to get to be your momma.
