🌿 Baby + I are both still sick and this week feels longer than ever. Wishing I was back adventuring with my two favorite guys and seeing Grey's eyes light up with wonder and excitement (Sully is a favorite around here for sure) 🐱 . . . It's almost Friday guys + gals and that's something to celebrate as is the fact that my hubs went to Trader Joe's last night and stocked our fridge with toooooonnnnns of veggies to roast. 👊🏼 One of my love languages must be food. 😂
🌿 On this day last year, we were celebrating my baby shower. Awaiting the arrival of our darling surprise boy or girl. Greyson we are so glad you're you. Our darling, sweet, funny boys boy. The recipe for my delicious gluten free and dairy free naked vanilla cake can be found on the blog. I will be using a similar recipe for Mr. Grey's first birthday! 🎈 🎉
🌿 I love that Grey needn't be held accountable for my mistakes, past, present or future... It is hard to know though, that I also can't control his future sins and mistakes. I can however, do all I can to make sure he is set on a path that models Christ to the best of my ability everyday by keeping close to the Lord and staying in the word.
🌿 Last night, the first night in many many months, this little guy wanted to be rocked and held to go to bed. After falling asleep in just minutes, I held him. I just soaked in the reminder of all those early months where he lived right in the space for hours and hours. . . And while those moments were exhausting and seemed never ending, it's funny what we miss when that phase has ended. . . So last night I just held him. And whispered prayers and love over his sweet, sleeping little self. I looked down at the feet that were once so delicate and tiny, that are now starting to walk. The face the used to look so small against my chest now fit so perfectly in the crook of my arm. Just like he was always meant to be right here. Grow right here. In my arms. Because he was. All along.
