three months



Nearly one year ago 
you began to shine my face,
mock my stomach
and pull dark doubts from among the skeletons.

you grew
and grew within a new purpose.
draped fresh in quiet fears,
your tiny heart beat despite
heat and stress and your sister wrestling me.

my second, my son
never think the surprise
was not meant

almightiness only works in exacting
measure as it pulls, prods and
shapes its tiny pots.

You sure know how to express yourself! I love the photo with the boots. When we were there Bradie was lamenting that her old boots were too little. Grandma Janie

Wow... you are an amazing blogger. I love keeping up with you on your blog... and you make the most precious little children. I also love the toes pic! Happy three months. I can't believe it already... the time has gone so fast.
