Two years ago we welcomed a baby into the world.
on Tuesday September 21 at 11:03am.
The Lord gave me the desires of my heart when a voice in the delivery room exclaimed
"It's a boy!"
Jacob is exactly what I wanted.
Yes, a boy, but even more than that,
he's the type of boy I envisioned my son being like.
Rough and tough yet sweet and funny.
Jake lights up my day every single day.
Sometimes I find myself catching my breath when I look at him.
The wind gets knocked out of me when I realize how beautiful he is, inside and out.
When I see him hold his little hands together while we say grace at the table.
When he laughs so hard that I can see every single tooth he has.
When I pick him up in the morning and he says "Where's Daddy??" every single time.
I love him more than I can even comprehend and I thank God for him each day.
I wonder what he'll be when he grows up.
It's been a pleasure to see him through the last two years.
I can't wait to spend my lifetime as his mama.
It's an honor and a joy.
Happy Birthday, Jake-the-Snake.
My cheerful baby. My happy baby. My easy baby.
