So, it's been a while since I've written anything on this blog, but I've been thinking about writing on it for a while...here goes.
These days, these hours, these moments are so very precious! Kaiden is almost six months old. Time is flying! Every day I fall a little more in love with my sweet boy. He is growing, and learning, and advancing in so many little and big ways day after day. This week he popped two teeth. TEETH!!! This means soon he'll be munching away on food, REAL food. I'm a little sad to see our days of simple breastfeeding change to morsel cluttered chair trays and food covered floors. But, at the same time, I'm excited for Kaiden to experience new flavors and textures as he learns a little more about this big ol' world. God has been so good to us. We are blessed beyond words to have such a wonderful little boy. What joy it is to embrace life with this little one and see things through his eyes.
Lord, thank you! Thank you for Kaiden. Thank you for his sweet face. Thank you for 10 fingers and 10 toes. Thank you for happy screams and "Feed me please!" whimpers. Help us to raise him in a way that casts all the glory back to you. Show us how to bring him up in a balanced, healthy way, spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Teach us to rely on the Spirit - cultivate in us the fruits of the Spirit...love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Bind the enemy in all things concerning Kaiden and our family. We love you and trust you. Be glorified in and through us each and every day, hour, minute.
