Being a mother is more amazing than I had imagined. Hunter is 10 weeks old and full of life. I love to watch how he experiences the world. It seems like every day he has a new experience - a first time for something. God gave us a happy and energetic baby boy. He entrusted us with this child, and I consider being a parent a privilege. It is taking me longer to type this blog, as I watch Hunter kick his busy little legs, smile, laugh, and blow bubbles. Everyone says that they grow so fast, and I am taking in every moment.
His full name is Jesse Hunter. Both Clayton and I thought of the name Jesse and mentioned it on the drive to church (we rarely agreed on a name). This was December and a few days before Christmas. At church, we sang a hymn and read a verse that noted Jesus as the root of Jesse. The name Jesse means "God's gift" or "God exists." How appropriate as we consider this child a gift from our God who loves us dearly, and He does exist!
