Please Say It Isn't So...

My first born child turned 8 last week!!! I can't believe that he is old enough to get baptized...which he did last Monday the 15th. We had to have his baptism the day after his birthday due to my parents being gone, and since they had a part on the program they kind of needed to be there:) I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around the fact that it has been 8 years since he was in my belly, 8 years since I was anticipating his arrival, and 8 years since this little blond hair, blue eyed, boy changed my life forever. Here are just a few reasons why we love our Porter 'John' Wayne Martineau...
#1...His awesome laugh!
#2...His corky sense of humor...He's SUCH a tease!!
#3...His tender heart.
#4...His ridiculously long eye lashes!
#5...He's a straight 'A' student
#6...He LOVES to work with his dad!
#7...His love for learning!
#8...He accepts everyone!
Porter...We hope you know how much we love you! We are SOOOO grateful that our Heavenly Father trusted us enough to allow us to be your earthly parents. Thanks for making us laugh everyday!!! We will love you forever!!!

I feel the same way about Tyra. It seems like we just took them on walks last summer in strollers. He is so cute and so sweet.
