What I love about you

Posted by Stephanie on 8:13 AM
I've decided to keep this blog to document the first year with Moriyah.  This will be a series for a keepsake that I will combine with the pregnancy entries to form a book I will order for her first birthday.  Thanks to Michelle for the wonderful idea!

Birth- 2weeks

Mommy made this shirt for you which will go in a shadow box

I love...

  • that you are finally here!
the moment Daddy placed you on my chest
  • our first family picture with you in it

  • the newness of your tiny cloth diapers and cord

  • the way you looked in Daddy's tallit at 6 days old

  • how peaceful you look when your sleeping in my arms

  • that your cord came off and we can dress you up now

your sisters picked out this jumper to put you in first

  • watching all the tenderness shown to you

  • seeing you stroll the garden with Daddy your first time outside

  • how good you were for our first outing. Slept entire time.

  • the feeling of carrying you in my newborn sling

  • all the visits, meals and gifts from loved ones because of you

  • snuggling with you in our bed at night and nursing you to sleep
  • the way you smell 
  • how only nursing can truly comfort you
  • how tiny you are
  • that you look a little like each of your brothers and sisters
  • how you have changed our lives forever
  • how you've already brought so much blessing

I can't believe your first two weeks went by so quickly. I have richly enjoyed our time together while Daddy has been home taking care of everything for me so we can have our special time during these early days. I will miss our babymoon but I'm going to try and drag it out a bit longer!  Our first and only outing was to see Debra for your two week check-up.  You are back up to your birth weight at 8.8 pounds and very healthy.  All the children adore you and want to hold and kiss you ALL the time. I love you so much and can't imagine our family without you in it.  You are so precious and we are all so incredibly blessed and thankful for you.

    Scripture and Quotes

    "Children are a heritage of YHWH; the fruit of the womb is His reward. As arrows in the hand of a mighty man, so are the children of youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. " Psalm 127:3-4

    The Scriptures teach that debt is a curse and children are blessings; but in our culture, we apply for a curse and reject blessings. Something is wrong with this picture.
