Today he is just past two months old.
I'm so glad! And also I sorrow that I cannot pause time. This - this picture taking - it's
as close as I can get to holding a moment longer than it actually lasts.
Words are not my outlet in these last few years. I have thoughts, but they don't seem
to allow for mining. At least not in this venue.
That's okay. I have pictures to tell some of the story. Maybe one of these months I can sit
down with a cup of coffee instead of heavy eyelids, and caffeine will have something
interesting to tell you :-)
I will say that Winter has been gentle. Lance Victory sleeps in my arms peacefully,
which I didn't get to experience with my last tiny person. It is a balm, and I've been
gifted the success of slowing down enough to soak it up.
This guy... he is amazing.
Who would have thought of what God had planned? I still can't wrap my mind
around ten children. Ten. Wha...?
And still, here is this little fella - he is numbered ten in the birth order, but do you
know he was planned by God's heart right along with the first one?
This was his appointed time, and I really can't wait to watch who he is.
What he's going to do. To be a part of his life feels like a privilege, and yes.
I'm certain it is!
Since my heart is full, but my words run dry, I'd like to post a bunch of pictures
with my Grandma in mind, and AJ's Grandma and Grandpa too. Wow. What an honor to
participate in such a legacy by passing on Grandpa's name to our five sons.
And I feel this way about each one of my children, privileged to have them.
Privileged to know them. They are some pretty neat people :-)
Perhaps a brief explanation of a couple of
Bryce has been disassembling some of his toys
and collecting bits of trash in order to create these awesome little robots!
Grampa has brought his guitar over a few times, and there have been eager
dancers and singers (who knew?). Also, Grama somehow finds dresses that would make
Cinderella jealous of my girlies, and paired with a hoop skirt... pure dreaminess.
Life is good. Full of books, kisses, and sleeping babies.
Doesn't get much better than this :-)
