I have been a mother for six weeks today. My son has stolen my heart with his tiny sneezes, gigantic farts, little coos, big smiles, wiggles, cries and squeaks. It is amazing to watch your child change, learn and develop every day. You take so many skills for granted until you watch this little person slowly work through learning something as simple as a smile. Babies remind you of the simple beauty of humanity and the complexity of creation.
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
the fruit of the womb a reward.
