It’s amazing to me how quickly the last six months have gone by. Everyone always warned me, and I know it’s so true, but even still, it feels like just a fleeting moment has gone by since baby J entered our lives. Gosh, it feels like just yesterday we saw the “positive” sign on the little plastic stick. I literally cannot even begin to imagine what I could have possibly done to deserve this amazing little boy. I thank Jesus every single night when I put him to bed for choosing us to be his parents. I ask that He continues guiding us to raise him to be the godly man He intends him to be and to give him a love and passion for Jesus. He is just the most incredible little person I’ve ever met, it’s such an honor to be his Mommy. He has brought a joy and excitement to our lives that we never knew possible.
I like to think that I really am treasuring every moment. I remind myself daily to relish the small things, for they are just as important as the big milestones.
