Major is now 4 months old. He's a thriving, beautiful, big baby. At his 4 month check, he is right on the 87th percentile weight line for boys, but he's 2 lines above the 97th percentile for height, so I guess he is going to be one TALL man. We wonder if he'll be even taller than his uncles. Both my sons are over 6 foot 5 inches tall! Anyway here are some recent pics...
Waiting to go to Church, see how blonde his hair is getting
He loves reading with Gran
But the best part of reading is in the tasting of the book! His great grandmother, Nana Jarden, bought him this cutie, winter outfit
As one gets older the days rush by faster, I still remember waiting to become a teenager, it was so embarrasing being 5foot 7inches tall at age 12. No matter how much I stooped all the kids around me still never reached even to my shoulders. And getting to 21, well that took an absolute age - I was old before I got there it took so long!
Then suddenly the years started to speed up, at 22 I was a mum, at 24 I was married. By 30 I had 3 children, by 40 I was raising them on my own, by 50 I was the most slender and fit that I'd ever been in my life - some things are just too good to last though, for the past three years I've been plagued with health problems and loosing the battle of the bulge.
But along all those fleeting years I've racked up some jolly fine experiences, experienced triumphs and tragedy and best of all I discovered who I am, why I'm here and where I'm going.
I've learnt what mothers love feels like. It's overpowering and all encompassing but yet, it's nothing compared to the absolute wonderment of grandmothers love and even that is miniscule compared to the love that our Creator has for us.
I've spent three quarters (maybe more) of a lifetime learning stuff; trying to get wise about how to be a great mum, trying to remember that my body is the temple of my soul so I should be careful about what I put into it, trying to harness my thoughts to keep them confined to uplifting and enriching stuff and looking for the humour of it all along the way. Of the battles - I win a few, I loose a few and here's where I ramble about the journey.
Most noteable achievement: Raising 3 terrific kids who have all turned into contributing adults and so far produced 2 adorable grandchildren to enrich and bring delight to my life.
