One Year Old:

Today marks the one year anniversary of my dear sweet little boy's birth. Over the past months L. has grown and changed remarkably. Every parent watches with mixed emotions as their little one gets bigger and becomes more independent. I too feel a lump rise in my throat when I dwell on it. But I look for the joyous moments that Yahweh blesses our little family with, and realize I most definitely am not loosing anything but gaining an inquisitive, strong and sweet little boy. We are very excited about the coming months and years as L. continues to develop a personality, wishes and dislikes. Our goal is to train him to be obedient to us, his parents, and to Yahweh, so that it is well with him. He is a quick learner!

Over the past two weeks L. has picked up a few more things to note:
He says 'bah-bye' and waves
He says 'Bahhh' which is translated Ball
He says 'Heah' for Hey
He signs for 'more', sometimes 'all done' and the itsy-bitsy-spider-- sort of!
He loves to play the drum on anything
He weighs just under 20 lbs and is about 27 inches tall

None are crystal clear, but all have been verified with outsiders! (I'm not making these things up!) I praise Yahweh for giving him to us. I love you, baby boy!
