Just a little photo shoot cause I’m an obsessed mama & it’s Friday 💁🏼♀️ also he’s the only one that will hold still soooooo.
Sometimes, when it’s just him & I during nap time, I let myself wonder. Wonder what it would be like if he were my only. Would I be overwhelmed? Would I be hyper-cautious? Would I venture out more or stay home? Would he be on a strict schedule? Would I push him to grow up too fast? Would I have this special first-born bond with him because we spent so much time just us? In some ways, it’s hard to fathom life with only one baby. But I believe that he will grow to be tough, patient, kind, and also able to stand up for himself because of his big brother and sister. Navigating these waters of adoption will only get harder as they grow up, but they will only ever know life with each other & that is a special thing. So maybe I am a different mom than I would have been, but I pray it’s exactly the type of mom they all need.
We’re hoping that this week brings our big answered prayer for their case. It has been a long, trying road and we are just thankful that the end is near. ✨ I continue to pray for peace over their little hearts. They have gone to through things that they shouldn’t have to at any age, let alone their young, fragile ones. They have taught us so much about loving with reckless abandon. The gospel is being lived in our living room. What an immense honor it is to be their mama. One that I hope I never take for granted.
Okay where has the time gone?? That hairrrr 😭 I miss those newborn snuggles, but this stage of him rolling and grabbing his toes all day is fun too 💛
My cookie making helpers. One may or may not have snuck an entire ball of cookie dough into his mouth faster than I could blink. 🤢
Either wants a “nack” or Alexa to play Baby Shark. She’s a hoot. 🙃
