Can I just say that I'm crazy about this man-child?!!!!!!!!
I'm really thankful for the relationship we have. He teases me a lot. He likes to tickle me and jump on my back. He can't stand to not have a sip (or 20 sips) of my diet coke. He loves to sing, brush his teeth, climb trees, and help me in the kitchen.
Today we sat across the table from each other eating our peanut butter sandwiches and tapping our fingers on the table. He is a person. Not just a baby, but a person. This growing up thing is really happening.
At church this morning I heard a phenomenal talk from a friend and older-than-me mama about raising boys. It was so encouraging and inspiring. She talked Biblical masculinity and how to nurture this in our sons. I'm so excited that this man-child will be a man one day. I have so much work to do. Or rather God has so much work to do - through me and my man-child. By His grace we can raise this little boy up to be a godly man - with a gentle and strong spirit, who loves the Lord, and lives life well.
