Babies

A friend of mine had a baby boy this week, and he is such a beautiful baby. We went to the hospital to see him, and he was just a little guy. I haven't held a baby that small in many years. Amazing. Simply amazing. Those tiny ears. Those long, delicate, perfect fingers with teeny tiny fingernails. That tiny, perfect nose. I just marveled at him. I marveled that a week before I was able to feel him moving around in my friends tummy, and then here he was! I honestly have no idea how people in this world can say that he was not a life in the womb, but now that he is born he is now a life. That tiny, perfect little baby was just as tiny and perfect a week before he was born, and a month before he was born, and 2 months, and 3 months before, and all through his life in the womb. Children are such a blessing. Such a wonderful gift from the Lord. I am seeing that more and more each day.

Congrats to your friend. And what a lovely photo of you (I love the wispy bits you've added to your bangs). I believe a child has life - and a soul - from the very moment of conception.
