What can I say? I'm hopelessly in love with this boy we call Nash. He is delightful in all ways and absolutely makes my life so much richer! I never imagined that I would find him so scrumptious! His never-ending giggle, his clapping and singing, his smiles, the lovey eyes he gives, the hugs and kisses, his tinkering and discovering...the list goes on and on.
Daily my heart melts as I watch him take in the world around him. I find him irresistible!
Watching this wonder of delight choose to mimic his daddy and I brings me to a lot of constant reflection in my own life. Am I modeling what I need to be for him? Am I choosing to love those around me deeply and genuinely? Does he know that I'm totally and completely in love with him? Are my words and actions something I desire him repeating someday? The thoughts are never ending in this realm. Being a mama is a big job!
Choosing to be who Christ has called me to be, in someways is easier now that Nash is in our lives. It's amazing how a small infant can change your perception on life in so many ways. I am so thankful that God chose Nash for our family and us for him! I know full well that there will be challenges in the midst of raising him, but I also know that this is where I will grow and develop even more towards the character God desires in me.
He is a priceless gift -- one that I'm eternally grateful for!
