Dear Shepherd (8 Months)

(3. I am thankful for my Shepherd boy and the immense joy and love he stirs in my heart. The place in my heart for Shepherd is a very tender one and I am so blessed that God gave him to me.)

My Little Moose,

8 Months OLD!!!! Wow, the time flies. You really might just be the cutest baby boy I have ever seen or known in my whole life. I just want to kiss your little face all day long. I could see that becoming a problem if I don't get a grip before junior high. This has been a fun, eventful month. Here are some highlights:

  • You are wearing size 4 diapers during the day and I've put you in size 5 at night. (We wear target brand size 5 at night because mommy doesn't want to pay for overnight diapers).
  • You weigh just a few ounces under 20lbs. So you are not quite as out of control chunking out, but you sure are getting taller!!
  • You had your first haircut! Some days we style it in our fohawk and some days just messy spikey.
  • Your first tooth broke through - you don't really like anyone to see it though. 
  • I expect any day now you will start crawling. You lay your tummy and shake your arms and legs vigorously expecting that to make you move and you get very very frustrated when you do not!
  • You are wearing 12 month clothes and size 3 shoes.
  • You love to eat squash and bananas and peaches and you tolerate the green stuff.
  • You are displaying more and more boy qualities every day. You like to throw things and grunt at things and are very interested in any balls or trucks. 
  • You adore your big sasster and continue to take a lot of your cues from her. If she laughs you laugh. If she cries you cry.
  • When your dad came home from Bucharest, you were so excited to see him. Whenever he is in the room your eyes are glued to him and you follow him everywhere. 
  • You still love to jump and jump and jump in your jumparoo.
  • Tonight you graduated from your baby bath tub to the real thing. Other than getting water in your eyes from washing your hair, you were so excited to play and chew on your alphabet letters.
Every day I get to see new qualities in your personality and tender heart shine through. What a blessing you are. We continue to pray and beg and ask that the Lord would woo you to himself that you KNOW Him and SERVE Him and LOVE Him all the days of your life.
