dear rider,

23 Jan

I am already learning so much about you and your sweet little personality. You are SO different from your brother! Everyone laughs at how different you two look, and I am loving every minute of it. I love that you both are so different. You are special and unique and so incredibly loved by this family. You are a lot more laid back than your brother. You are content to just hang out and watch him run around you, showing you his cars and other various toys. He’s learning how to ‘share’ with you, even though you aren’t quite ready to play with him yet. You have such a sweet demeanor and are happy to smile at anyone who asks you too. You are serious most of the time though, and I always wonder what you are thinking about.

You’ve only rolled over one time and prefer to stand as much as possible, with the help of a saucer obviously. Your doctor said that wanting to be able to stand is a pretty big milestone for a 4 month old and I know you are just wanting to run around with Cruz. Your teeth are coming in and despite the fussiness that that naturally brings, you are still happy and content.

We are so blessed by you. And we can’t wait to learn more about you and see who God created you to be. I can’t wait to learn about more differences and similarities between you and Cruz. It’s just such a fun dynamic and keeps me on my toes. When I think about how much you’ve changed and blessed our lives, I am forever reminded of this passage:

I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them!” Psalm 139:14-17

You are special, sweet boy. You were created for us and for this family by a God who loves you more than you could ever imagine. We love you more than you’ll ever know.

I love you,
