I am making a conscious effort lately to really enjoy Isaac and all that he is right now. Despite the exhaustion, the piles and piles of laundry, and everything else that goes with having a baby… he is such a treasure. Last night as I sat rocking him, he lay sleeping in my arms. I leaned my head down to gaze at his face up close, and whispered prayers of thanks to God for giving him to us. I prayed for him and us, and kissed his soft little cheeks until he stirred and I had to hold myself back in order not to wake him. I rocked him a few extra minutes, drinking in the sweetness of his eyes, his lips, his nose, his cheeks.

I’m so in love!
