Not A Baby Anymore

My baby, Micah Paul, is 2 years old today...

It's been two whole years since I held him, exhausted but glowing, having given birth to him at home, in my own bed...

It's been a year since we last made birthday soup...

And now, Micah is 2, and he's going to be a big brother in just a few short weeks.

He's not a baby anymore, so I suppose it is time that I stop seeing him as one.

And so, I took Micah to the Barber--the same Barber that has cut his father's, grandfather's, uncle's, and brother's hair--for his first haircut.

Yeah...he's ready...but am I???

He sat so still, and so quiet...

Good-bye, curls...sniff...sniff...

Hello, big boy!

Suddenly, Micah looks so much like his big brother... grown up...Father, give this mama grace...

"Don't I look handsome, mom?"

A sweet reward...

...and the end result! Take a look at all that hair!!!

"And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature,
and in favor with God and man."
Luke 2:52

Father, thank-you for continuing to grow my little boy. My he mature in all ways as your son, Jesus, did, and may he walk in your ways. May he love, serve, and follow you all the days of his life, and may he dwell in the House of the LORD forever. Amen.

Happy Birthday, Micah!!!
