Well, it’s been a little while now but Captain Obvious had another birthday and I had yet another moment of realization, “I am grown up!”
How does it happen?
No one can say. But I was picking dandelion bouquets one day and filling little vases with my children’s beautiful weeds the next.
I love this first picture of us as parents. You might not be able to tell except the red face but Captain was taking a breath in the middle of a good cry and Matt and I are laughing.
Who would have known that this little screaming baby would turn into a boy?
A boy who loves the Lord.
A boy who helps with his siblings.
A boy who loves animals.
A boy, whom a the ripe age of 9 is already passionate about truth and faith.
Where do they come from?
I am certainly nothing special.
After all, wasn’t I nine just last week?
No one has ever been able to describe it and mother’s will forever say, “I can remember my childhood like it was yesterday.”
I am in awe at the wonder of God’s creation!
Beautiful, unique, challenging, growing, child of mine.
Side note – Captain Obvious has requested a nick name change. I haven’t decided yet if I can bear to give up my “authority”. He would like to petition the blog for the name Doolittle instead of Captain Obvious.
