This is about 9 months old. He was such a cute, round little baby! I just realized that he isn't smiling in this picture, or the one before it! We really had to work hard to capture his winning smile on film. Henry was at least two before we could convince him that it was a good idea to smile for the camera!Here's the sweet smile I mentioned earlier! And those blue eyes--the girls are gonna be weak in the knees!
Henry also recently learned how to hit a baseball. He is incredibly talented. He can hit better if his dad is throwing the ball to him than if it's on a tee. I don't know if it will stick, but right now Henry has a great LOVE for the game of baseball. He also has a great arm--he can probably out throw me! :)
So that's it for pictures. Henry is a wonderful child--he is full of life and love, has a great imagination, is always looking out for others, and never fails to make us laugh! Henry has a personality that draws people in. When we had him dedicated as a baby, a woman in our church came up and said that she had a word for us (his parents). She said that the holy spirit had put it in her heart to share with us that many people would be reached for the kingdom of God through Henry, that he would touch people from many countries. I don't know how exactly that will play out, but his personality is shaping up to make it happen!
I am so glad that God has placed Henry in our care, and I pray daily for wisdom in his upbringing, and thank God for the joy he brings our family. I love you Henry!
