Elijah just passed his one month birthday. He and his mama are doing so so well. He is unbelievably cute and sweet tempered. He eats, sleeps, and grows. All in our home love him like crazy. Especially Anna. She has great concern whenever she hears him crying or doesn't know where he is. She holds up her hands and says, baby? And Ren, well she is an incredible mama. She loves him so deeply. It has been such a joy and treat to watch her be his mama. She is patient, adoring, prayerful. She is adjusting, as we all do when babies come, to the emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual changes, joys, and stressors in her life. She makes my heart happy. What a blessing to have them in our lives. We could have never imagined this road for our family but we are so thankful to be on it, journeying through the joys and sorrows together. Holding on to Jesus and seeking to point all in our home to become more like Him. We say often in our home to our children that we want them to love well. And that is also what we strive to do. Love well. Both in and out of our house. Because God first loved us, because love doesn't change based on what we do or don't do, and because love draws us into God's presence and character and allows His love to flow through us. Enjoy some Elijah cuteness!
