milestones

I haven't written a blog since the birth of our son for fear that all I would talk about was how tired I am. I will say this, what they say about never sleeping once you have a newborn is not propaganda. I haven't slept longer than about a 2 hour stretch since he came into our lives. I will also say I have never been so content to be so sleep deprived.

As a new parent I find I have transformed into a person I never thought I'd be. I relish in every bit of minutia related to our son. I celebrate every milestone. Even ones that aren't actual milestones, just things Luke does. The other day he peed all over the bathroom mirror. I think he was writing his name. In cursive. What a boy.

Here's an actual milestone: rolling over

Ever since the moment we heard his cry, we have been madly in love with this little boy who spends his time robbing us of sleep and requiring a lot of laundering of tiny clothes. It is amazing how much we can love another person. What they say about the love you feel for your child, also not propaganda. Seeing him and experiencing love as a parent has given me a tiny glimpse of how our Creator must love us. What an awesome and humbling thing to behold.
