    A first birthday party for our little man

    One year ago we met our Julian for the very first time. This wild, sweet hearted boy with the firey hair and everlasting smile, who laughs like crazy and never stops moving. We threw a ‘Manly’ bash for our little man to celebrate his first birthday. Here are a few pictures of his day:

    We are so blessed to be this boy’s parents. What an overwhelming gift to see him grow and learn and to be able to introduce him to our great God and His beautiful world. Our hearts burst with love for you Julian Richard, you have filled every corner of our lives with love.
