Our little guy is growing UP! At the risk of sounding over dramatic and sentimental, I want to reflect a little bit about our first born. He is gentle, kind, slow, cautious, and affectionate. He has been this way from day one and we have relished his expressions of these endearing traits. Be it known, he is still all of those things. But, the little guy is growing up. We are beginning to see some real "boy" coming out in him as we find him catching bugs, climbing gates, and controlling his younger brother. He has begun saying funny things to get people to laugh. It is not uncommon to see him being as silly as can be. It is almost daily that he says something that makes you say, "where did that come from?" We see flashes of these things and we realize that he is growing up. Again, not that this is bad, we actually relish the sight of him developing, but there is something inside that is just a bit scared. We are daily trying to savor our time with Drew and we praise the Lord for His grace. Please dont sign me up for a session with the local psych, just pray with me that Drew can grow up to be a man who pursues God's glory.
