"Lonely" Tater Tot

This handsome guy is our boy, Tater. He was welcomed with grateful hearts on May 27, 1995. Thirteen years ago, today. He weighed 8 lbs. 10 ozs. We just could not believe how much you could love a little baby. He was a great baby, who we adored. He has been a little lonely up til now, being the only boy with 4 sisters. But that is all about to change!

Tater has officially reached teen hood, and I don't like it! I want him to live with me forever, this growing up business is for the birds! He has been such a joy! He has just been so easy! I often say that if all children were like him, we'd have a dozen. It looks as though we may make that mark anyway!

Tater loves chicken nuggets, Mountain Dew, books, the Presidents, drawing cartoons, playing video games, hanging with friends, and playing with his sisters (ummm.... most of the time). He is even tempered, and easy going. He can be in the house all day, and you'd never know it. He is quiet, and a little shy, but will talk to you if you try. He is very active in our Youth Group, which I love. He is a peaceful presence in our home, and we love him so much! Happy Birthday, Bud!

This is one of my favorite pictures ever. It speaks volumes about Tate's loving nature. This is him and Little Bean when she was about 2 weeks old.

Tater's Life Verse:
The Lord will keep you from all harm-
he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forever more.
Psalm 121:7,8
