Today has just been one of those days when I wish Nathan still was about this size:
Not forever - but just long enough to get a nice, long snuggle in there and smell his sweet baby head again. :) I held my dear friend Melanie's three-week-old son Bennett today for a few minutes and I just about wanted to cry he was so sweet and little. Nathan never seemed more huge to me!
We met Jamie, her kids and Melanie, her kids and her mother-in-law, who is in town visiting little Bennett, at Chick-Fil-A for lunch today. We had a great time visiting there! I haven't seen them too much this week with all the birthday festivities going on, so it was wonderful catching up. And Nathan got to go play in the "big kids" play area for the first time. I'm pretty sure he thought he was about the biggest kid in the world. ;)
I'm almost through with Beth Moore's Living Beyond Yourself and guys, it's awesome. Please plan a time to go through it. The lessons are a little long sometimes, but I have learned so much. I've been trying to be diligent about getting up, showering and working through a day in this study before Nathan wakes up in the mornings and so far, God has been very faithful to give me that time with Him.
But, all that being said, I'm almost done with the book and looking for another Bible study. Anyone have any suggestions?? :)
And now, Nathan's down for a nap and I've got to work on this deadline! :) I've never been more grateful for a boy who takes good naps. ;)
