One Month Old!
This has been the busiest but happiest month of our lives. It’s been chalk full of emotions and adjustments but even through the sleepiness and the chaos we can’t imagine life without our little Isaiah. On March 21st I got a message that changed my life forever. A message saying there was a woman needing to find a family for her son. We decided on it in 3 days. We were told we had three months. And before we could even blink he was here. We didn’t have the usual 9 months to prepare for him so while his nursery is yet to be finished he is so loved. I can honestly say that this is the most exhausting but honorable job out there.
Every night around 10:30 I get him lotioned and jammied with a full belly and all five of us (us and the dogs) pile onto our bed. This is my favorite part of the day. It’s my favorite because it’s quiet and relaxed. Whatever got done got done and whatever didn’t will wait till tomorrow. We’re snuggled up with him in between us, listening to his sweet baby noises. It’s a great time to reflect. Bedtime reflecting. I hope we keep this tradition for a long time.
This was the bed that we starting praying for a baby. This is the bed that I lied awake in wondering if we’d ever be parents. And the same bed that held us as I cried for what seemed like a lifetime, begging for a child to love. And now here we are with a little munchkin snuggled between Chris and I thanking God for granting us what we asked. I could lay there forever just staring into those big gorgeous eyes. He knows he’s ours, and it’s amazing.
It’s been one month and no matter how tired I am, I’m ready for many many more!! Happy one month birthday baby boy. We are so grateful that God chose us to be your Mommy and Daddy. We love you so much!
God is so good, all the time. And oh how He has blessed our lives with Isaiah.
