Luke, You're 11 Months Old

Luke, you are 11 months old.  Every month you get sweeter and sweeter!  You're little personality is emerging more and more every day.  I am enjoying the blessing of being your Mom and the opportunity to be home with you observing first hand every time you try and learn something new.
I can't believe how much you have changed this month.  You are literally learning something new everyday.  Here are some of your firsts this month...
*You got your top two teeth.  You now have four teeth, two on top and two on the bottom.
*You self weaned yourself
*You drink milk from a cup
*You eat only table food
*You sleep through the night
*You crawl
*You pull yourself into a standing position
I am amazed that you learned all this in just one short month!
I'm totally biased, but you are the cutest little boy and I'm beyond grateful that God chose me to be your Mom.
You are loving your new freedom to explore
and we are learning to live with a house of gates again!
In one short month you will reach a milestone.  Our last baby will turn one year old!   I pray constantly that God will direct your path.  That you will be protected spiritually and that your Dad and I will honor God in our parenting of you.  That we will be an example daily of His amazing love for you.  That you will be confident in God's love and accept Him readily into your heart.  That you will seek to know and follow His will for your life and that you will honor Him in everything you do. 
I love you more than words can express. 
Happy 11th Month
"Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen."
Hebrews 13:20-21

For the peace of a decision made
For spring rains that bring new life
For empty laundry baskets
For Brett
For the blessings of being a Mom
For fresh smelling flowers
