"The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving." Psalm 28:7
The Lord has been so good to us! We are so very blessed to have our little Jakey! His smile is infectious and oh, so heart warming. His eyes are so full of love. I can't tell you how he melts my heart every time I look at him. He is changing every day. He just started putting weight on his legs a little over a week ago and now he is pushing himself up constantly while we are holding him. He has a long way to go when it comes to rolling over or sitting up, but he spent two months in a hospital bed so we'll give him a little more time to catch up. He is getting so good at using his hands to play with his toys and grab things he sees. He squeals with his brother and sister and thinks Hazel is hilarious! Hazel was the one who got Jacob to really crack up for the first time. We managed to get some video, but it just isn't as great as the very first laugh before we could grab the camera.
I'm just so grateful for all that we have. Although the last six months have been the toughest of our lives, we are lucky because it could have been so much more worse. God has blessed us with many small miracles along the way, and this journey has only brought us closer to Him.
"You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy." Psalm 30:11
