Happy Monday! I hope everyone had an incredible Easter weekend celebrating with friends and family!

Three years ago today Mike and I had our precious little boy Cason and I wanted to take some time to honor him today! {so its gonna be a momma talking to her little boy} 🙂

It took us a while to get pregnant, about a year, but as soon as we saw that plus sign on the indicator, our hearts were overjoyed! We had been anxiously waiting that good news and when it finally came we were in shock, but the best kind of shock!

The first thing in my mind was to pick a name. I wanted your name to be something that was significant, that meant something, that would be something you could walk into as you grew up.

Cason, your full name means Godly Warrior and we named you this with purpose. This is who you are, do not believe the things that the world may tell you you are!

You are a man of strength, a man of loyalty, a man of compassion, of wisdom, a man of honor, a man who loves the Lord with all your heart, a man of humility, a man who puts others before himself, a man of mercy and grace, and a man who is fierce and will fight for what he believes him.

As you have been growing up your mom and dad have loved seeing how your mind works. You are so smart! You catch on to the littlest things and then start doing them ….. and doing them well! You speak like such a little man, have a big imagination, are constantly curious, and asking why something works. Please never stop letting your mind run free, even if mommy doesn’t know how to explain to you why there is rain in the clouds. 🙂

I love how you always want to be like or with daddy. When he is outside doing lawn work, you are outside with your headphones, wheel barrel, and lawn mower. When he is fixing something in the house, you get your hammer and nails and help. You long to be just like daddy, even to the point of being as “BIG” as daddy is.

You have such a servants heart. You are always wanting to help and be involved with whatever someone is doing. If we are cleaning the bathroom, you want a job. If we are bringing groceries in, you want to have your own bag to bring in too. Whenever mommy is in the kitchen you are my little Sou Chef, you will not let a dish go without tasting it first. {especially when it comes to cookies}

I love how you light up when you see someone you know or how you are shy and hide behind our legs when its someone you don’t know. You are cautious but brave. You are strong and manly but also very gentle and loving.

Some of my favorite memories are when you curl up on the couch right next to me, not letting any space in between, just so we can watch your favorite show. {which right now is Paw Patrol} I love how when I’m sick or have a headache you crawl up next to me, put your hand on my head and pray “Jesus, I pray for mommy. Please help her feel better. In Jesus name Amen.” The faith that you have is so sweet and precious, it helps me understand what it means when God calls for us to have a “childlike faith.” I love that you will sit in the car, sing worship songs with me and raise your hands. It melts my heart every time!

You have brought so much joy to our lives. We are incredibly blessed and honored to be your parents and pray every day that we would raise you {by the grace of God} to be the man that God, desires you to be! Happy Birthday sweet boy!

Today, in honor of Cason’s birthday, we are making waffles! This kid could live on Mac & Noodles {what we call mac & cheese}, cheese, scrambled eggs, chocolate, and Pancakes or Waffles! Can you blame him though? All of those things need to have their own food group – good stuff, right?!

So instead of making a cake for his birthday {which I am this weekend for his pirate party}, I am making waffles!

These Whole Wheat Lemon Blueberry Waffles have a slight lemony taste, with a hint of almond, and then are packed with fresh juicy blueberries. The waffles are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, basically everything you want in a waffle and more!

We love to eat them fresh off the waffle press but they are great to freeze or store in the refrigerator for the next day! Hope you get a chance to make them!
