Joy and Praise
Judah and his friend Mateo
In the jogging stroller
Judah is changing so much everyday. I just want to take all of him in. So many times I just hold him and cuddle him and kiss his neck and breathe him in. He is making so many new sounds - clucking his tongue, lots of different vowel-constanant combos, blowing raspberries. It is so cute and he is encouraged to continue whenever we do it. He can also feed himself cheerios as of today. It is too cute!
Our neighbors have twin baby boys who are 2.5 months old. The little baby with Judah is one of them, Mateo. He was very curious about the baby, but didn't want to get too close. I think Judah was just thinking "Finally, another boy!" All of my friends have girls, so Judah is used to being the only boy!
When I was pregnant Eric & I listened to tapes that talked about prophecying over your baby in the womb. We loved the idea and so Eric printed out all the verses with the words "joy" and "praise" in them. Everynight in bed before we went to sleep he would put his hand on my big belly and pray these verses over the baby. God has definitely made this baby full of joy and praise. He loves to smile and laugh! We have videos of him laughing hysterically....I'll just have to figure out how to upload them.
