Standing on the Promises

IMG_7468


I kinda wish I could have posted her naked because really, I don't give a flying fig what she is wearing right now...

SHE IS STANDING!

It is wonderful and strange and humbling and absolutely amazing to see my baby standing on her own two legs. She just looks so tall, so much older, and oh so beautiful...my heart overflows.

She may need a little help for now, but it doesn't matter. I can see it now, right there in front of me. His plan. He's whispered, painted images on my heart since we found out about our rock star, but to see it happening -- with my own two eyes -- well, it is enough to send me to my knees. Or better yet, stand in awe...with my baby.

I no longer have to imagine. It is happening.

She may always need help, but that's okay. I don't care. At least not today. This isn't about what the world thinks is "normal." None of that matters. Not anymore.

It is about what He can do. What she can do. What they will do together.

It's about seeing the miracles...whether that means beating the odds, or simply taking advantage of the medical advances our generation is blessed enough to have available.

I don't care.

SHE IS STANDING.

You're right, she does look so much older! Can you just imagine how different the world seems to HER now - she has a whole new view (literally) of life; and that is amazing!

I think we need to be prepared - he has big things in store for this lil one!
