One month old!!


I cannot believe my little man is already one month old! And what a month it has been :) I didn't quite remember what it was like to have a newborn, but not in the way you might think. Of course the nightly feedings, the blowout diapers, the ginormous diaper bag, that is always a little shock to your system, but what I had forgotten has been so incredibly precious. I had forgotten the perfect innocence. I had forgotten the heavenly spirit that always lingers near him. I had forgotten how my little man could make all of us better. Skylar loves him so much, and always looks out for him, making sure he is being taken care of. Kendall is having a harder time, but not with him! When she is in the middle of one of her uncontrollable tantrums the ONLY thing that will calm her down is giving her baby Britton a hug and a kiss. Everytime I am near him I am reminded of everything good and pure. I don't want his innocence to be marred by harsh words, or a lack of the Spirit. So through him, I want to be better. For all my kids I need to be better, and I am so grateful for the reminder. He is such a gift.

WOW! Thank you for reminding me! I think we all tend to get caught up in the day to day and forgot what our Father in Heaven has given us... Each breathe, each smile, each second that is filled with JOY! Thanks for that post!
