|It doesn't seem like that long ago that my Second Babe came into our arms. But it was seventeen years ago today!|
He was a little big raggedy looking as a brand new infant, wasn't he!
Poor kid, we both had a rough time of it.
boundaries were meant to be crossed.
He was not supposed to climb on that box, since it was the official first step in swinging from the ceiling fan.
We've watched him grow and change. Looking up into his face instead of down, while still, every fleeting now and then, catching a glimpse of his little boy smile.
That smile from the top of a putt-putt course piece is my favorite little boy smile of his. There are several versions, but this one was rare and so sweet. It only appeared at moments of ultimate boy bliss.
I've seen it pass over his face a very few times since it became covered in whisker bristle.
He's becoming a man in front of our very eyes!
What a crazy, amazing trick the Lord can do with those tiny bundles of joy that land in our lives.
