Just as I was finishing my little photo shoot with baby under the Christmas tree Jonah came in the room, and did what he always does when he sees Isaac awake and accessible. He is totally in love with his little brother and I'm reminded of it daily when I catch glimpses like these or I hear him extoll the babies virtues once again. Oh, we are busy, the laundry is amazingly piled up, the dishes are often unwashed, I've been wearing unmatched socks and I feel so tired, but this is what I want to remember from this time. We are all falling in love with this new one in our life. I want to hold this awe and learn from it. This is the kind of love and awe I want to carry into our twelve days of Christmas every year - all of us slowing down and falling in love with the newness that salvation has come!
