Happy Birthday

Jester is 16 years old!

Here he is at one day old...with The King and I who were 16 years younger.

He was the fastest baby we had. He tried to enter the world with no doctor or nurses in the room, but we were able to hold him back until help arrived.

Who would have known sixteen years ago that he would become the comedian of the family? He makes me laugh every day. He never gets overly excited about anything, is pretty easy going and laid back, and never in a hurry. We must have stifled him when we didn't let him enter the world with a bang like he originally intended.

He is such a helper, especially with the younger children. People near and dear to us tell he acts like a third parent, always helping with and correcting the younger children. When The King is out of town, he steps right in and helps me get the little ones ready for bed, reads to them, prays with them, and tucks them into bed while I finish tidying the house. He knows that the reward will be an enjoyable quiet evening. That is really a blessing to me after a long day as a 'single parent'. I know he will make a wonderful father one day. He has had plenty of practice.

We love you Jester. Happy Birthday!
