last fall was pretty different. i was pretty pregnant. we were barely parents. i mean we were, but we didn’t really know what that meant yet. we talked about what our baby boy, still unnamed, would look like. what our birth would be like. what life would be like with this new little person. we were excited. we were scared. we were looking forward. we were holding onto the moments and wanting time to stand still.
fast forward to this fall. we are so in love. this little person feels like he has always been here, always been a part of our lives. we had a beautiful birthing experience, thank the Lord, and we have a healthy and happy little man. i’m even beginning a new career because of the amazing things i learned during my pregnancy, birth, and short amount of parenthood i’ve had under my belt. we are still excited. we are still looking forward. and we are still holding onto the moments wanting time to stand still.
God never ceases to amaze me. we get what we need when we need it. whether that is abundant blessings, or countless struggles. those struggles are turned into joy as His plan is revealed. the abundant blessings are experienced as true joy when we realize they are from Him. it’s really beautiful the way He created that order.
and i must say, keaton is a bunch of blessings all rolled into one.
