“Children are not things to be molded, but people to be unfolded”
Happy half birthday Gummy Bear,
I know I say this a lot, but I love you so much! You are such a sweet, sweet baby. Anytime I watch someone with you, they are beaming from ear to ear. There is something about your spirit that is so gentle, but also dynamic at the same time. One of the gifts that I believe God bestowed upon me at an early age was the gift of hearing his word. When I have quiet time with God and you, it is so clear to me that he has placed you on this earth for a very specific reason. This reason is currently unknown to me, but I can feel it in my gut that you are going to do something very instrumental in your life time; knowing this makes me so honored to have been chosen to be your guide during your childhood, but it also makes me want to protect you like no other! I write this in your half birthday message because birthdays are often a time of reflection and celebration. Never question your purpose on this earth, in people’s lives, or in what you decide as your career. You will ALWAYS be enough.
One of THE most amazing things that happened this month was how much you and your sister fell in love with each other. I know sissy has loved you from the day you were born, but to see how much you two love interacting makes my heart smile. I have the best video of your sister trying to change your diaper. When you two get older please have me show you this….it is THE best.
Another big moment was trying your first food this month! It was a family affair (like most things in our family) with Grandma, Auntie Rae Rae, Zoe, Daddy, and Mommy all in attendance. You tried avocado and really liked it….and then NEVER ate it again ahahhhaha. You literally HATE food. I have tried so many things this month and you refuse everything. In your own time….

Always with love,
