The past 6 months
Josiah, every day I thank our good God for blessing me with you. You are the sweetest little baby, and I tell everyone that you spoil me and daddy- you sleep so well, and are ever-ready with a big smile that just lights up your entire face.
I will always remember how long daddy and I prayed to have you- and for that, you will always hold a special place in our hearts.
I pray that you will continue to grow in the grace of God and become a great, thoughtful, caring, man. In fact, I hope you become like your daddy, and maybe even more. But for now, I enjoy you one day at a time. I love your babbling and blowing bubbles, and I marvel at how strong you have become already- rolling around wherever you want to go. You never were a snuggly baby, but the past couple of days you have taken the time to nestle your little face into my neck, and suck your thumb, and are content to be like that for a short while. What a wonderful thing to cherish!
Tonight I sang to you, nursed you, and brought your cute little head up to my face, and I smelled your amazing little baby smell, just before I gently placed you into your crib, where, as I said goodnight, you flashed your shining smile. I hope to always remember every moment like that one.
Happy 6 month birthday, baby!
With love, always, from your mommy.
