Hello Sweet Readers!
Today is David's birthday. He is 9. Wow. Almost double digits, but not quite! Happy birthday, sweet David!
I love these photos from our little impromptu photo shoot. Last week, after I picked him up from school, we made a run over to Sur La Table. They had a Peet's coffee right next door, so David and I got to enjoy some yummy warmth. These photos are of him thoroughly enjoying his hot chocolate with whipped cream. He is such a willing participant. I love watching him enjoy. Warms my heart.
I just love his smile. I love how he looks with the high contrast look of this photo. One problem is that he looks so much older here..with the brick wall, the jacket, the contrast. Too old! It would be so nice to have them little just a bit longer. But alas, I love him the way he is and and I love who he is becoming. He's a smart, creative, witty, athletic boy who loves the Lord. What more could I ask for? Well, I know I ask for much more certain days, but that is just my human nature. I pray he sees how much I love him each day. And more importantly, how very much he is loved and cherished by the God who created him and knows his inmost thoughts.
