Yesterday, my husband observed Gabe taking his baby reindeer to bed, cover him up, and then kneel by the bed and start saying prayers for him. I love that little boy. And I am so thankful that God is answering our prayers for a soft, teachable heart that loves Jesus.
Gabe's little brother or sister's personality is starting to show, too! I predict this one will be much more active, strong-willed, and less of a cuddler. The Lord has used Gabe to teach me so much, and with another child who is so different, I am sure I am in for some very different lessons. Am I up for this?
I am a bit nervous about labor and the weeks that follow. But more than nervous, I am excited to hold this little one and kiss some soft little cheeks. Maybe this is weird, but I am looking forward to breastfeeding and those night time feedings alone with this new child.
I will be needing so much grace. I'd better get out my knee pads and follow my son's example!
