“Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him. Children born to a young man are like arrows in a warrior’s hands. How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them! He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates.”
On Theo’s birthday morn I was searching for something of comfort and came across this verse from the book of Psalms. Speaking to my aching heart and wet eyes, it gave me the gift of gratitude.
This is my man, with his little man. Sean and I celebrated Valentines tonight since I have class on the actual holiday. To the naked eye, this man and baby have little physical resemblance (Theo had my blonde hair, green eyes, fair skin, everything!). But the most important feature daddy and Theo had in common, matching hearts.
Theodore’s heart held his easy nature, peaceful simplicity, and radiating love. Valentine’s 2012, I am ever so grateful to the man that gave our son this beautiful heart. Forever be mine, sweet baby Theo and daddy.
(Also, this photo shows a great example of Theodore’s favorite spot to be held in. Chest to chest we called it. He would nearly purr.)
