Eeee!! I love him!
Our Asa boy recently had his 8 month birthday. His seventh month proved to be quite the month developmentally. Some notable events:
* his hair has grown back. It's actually a little lighter than the color he had when he was born.
* He started saying "mama" (and he knows it means me!) Later in the month he added "dada," "baba," and all sorts of other babbles.
* He's mastered crawling.
* He's pulling up to stand.
* He crawl-climbs.
* He pretty much skipped the whole pureed food thing and went straight to soft solids.
* Still no teeth.
Dear Asa Trust,
I am convinced you are the sweetest boy. Your happiness and smiles are absolutely infectious. You are constantly wooing people with your charm, wooing me with your charm. I just can't get enough.
Already, I can tell you are a determined little soul. Whenever you have a goal in mind (these days usually involving physical feats such as pulling up to stand or climbing) you go for it with a smile on your face. Whenever you reach your goal you get so proud of yourself and always start giggling, especially when you look back at us for encouragement and we are cheering you are on.
My sweet boy, I will always be cheering you on and hopefully this family will always be a source of encouragement for you. You will have many goals in this life, but I pray that you your ultimate goal will be to know and to be known by the One who has always seen you as the joy set before Him.
"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race set out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith. For the joy set before him, he endured the cross, scorning it's shame, and sat down and the right hand of the throne of God." Hebrews 12:1-2
I am so proud of you.
