TO

Jack and Laurel FROM

The Sharpe Family Jack and Laurel, We can't wait to meet the newest little addition to the Bartlett family! A warm welcome to Baby Mason! Love, The Sharpes


Welcome, Mason!


What a wonderful blessing.


Mason’s ten tiny fingers.


Sweet, kissable toes.


Chubby, cherubic cheeks and cute button nose.


Jack and Laurel: Did you ever think someone so little could make you feel love‌

so

BIG?


Jack and Laurel:

Delight in the “boy-ness” of it all.


Baby blue sleepers. Miniature overalls. Dots, stripes, and plaids.


Cars, trucks, and balls.


Jack and Laurel:

There is nothing so innocent and so heartwarming‌ r S


…as little boy playtime. r S


Chasing frogs, looking for caterpillars, and playing in anything muddy or “puddle-y.�


Mason will endear you with his crazy, colicky hair,


scrapes, bumps, and bruises,


Kool-Aid kisses and everyday muses.


Jack and Laurel:

Boys love speed.


From crawling to walking.

From running to riding.


From taking the dare‌

to being the daredevil.

Hold your breath!


Jack and Laurel: Boys are tough on the outside.


oft on the insid s o s e. A nd


Jack and Laurel: Make time for him. „• Listen to him. • ‚ Celebrate him. „• Pray for him.


Jack and Laurel: Kiss him often.


Jack and Laurel:

Hug him tightly. (But not in front of his friends.)


And love him unconditionally.


Jack and Laurel:

Teach him kindness and manners and feelings and self-sufficiency.

It shows they are complex and sensitive and not so tough after all.
