It's amazing to think just a few weeks ago I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy. And it's also amazing to think that he's already almost a month old! By spending every day (and night) with Courage these last three and a half weeks, I'm becoming more accustomed to his cute mannerisms and personality as he grows. It's like getting to know a real person! I'm constantly reminded that he's a real little boy!

I have to admit it's been wonderful staying home all day with my son and getting used to life as a mom. I can't help but create 'To Do' lists in my head, such as "make pumpkin bread this week," and "start scrapbooking my maternity photos," and "play piano," (none of which I have actually accomplished), among the other usual tasks of laundry, dishes, cooking, cleaning, paying bills...etc. Nevertheless, I feel at peace and accomplished in my daily life, and I'm even looking forward to going back to work, as shocking as that may be!
As we approach November, I choose to cherish my last month as a "stay-at-home mom," and relish in watching my lion-heart boy grow into a two-month old. I don't want to miss a thing. So I praise God every morning and choose to live each day to its fullness!
