The Sweetest Sound

So, yesterday, I was fixing lunch after church, and John had Henry in the living room, playing with him. As I'm standing over the stove, I hear John making crazy noises and then Henry starts laughing, so then John starts laughing, so Henry starts laughing some more. And around it goes. It was the sweetest sound ever! Hearing my two main men laughing together and having fun was the best Mother's Day present ever!


I got to thinking this morning about my life, as I was sitting on my couch feeding Henry.

When I was in elementary school, I wanted to be the first female astronaut to go to Mars. I wanted to be the first female president of the United States. In kindergarten, I declared that I was going to be a teacher, and whatever grade I happened to be in at the time was the grade I wanted to teach. In high school, I wanted to be a pharmacist or a brain surgeon or a doctor.

Mother's Day

Mother's Day is this Sunday, and it's my first Mother's Day with my precious baby in my arms, not just in my tummy! I have to admit, I'm pretty excited. I know Henry won't have a clue about it this year, and probably for several years to come, but it's still going to be sweet. My mom sent me a Mother's Day card from her and Daddy, but she also enclosed one from Henry. It was really cute.

Laughter is the best medicine...or is it?

Henry is 4 months old now. It is so hard to believe! It seems like just yesterday John and I were struggling with infertility, and now here we are with this beautiful, bright-eyed, curly-haired little boy. He's started laughing, and it's the most beautiful, pure sound in the entire world. Full of glee. Innocent. I love it! I would do just about anything in the world to hear him laugh.
