This morning I woke up early because Josiah was having "fetal hiccups". It was intense. :) This little tiny person is shaking my uterus with gusto. It just gives me this image of his personality. I think he's going to be a mix of his father and my two brothers. He's going to be a band-aid magnet. Cameron will teach him how to play baseball. I will teach him how to appreciate literature. Cameron will teach him how to put a worm on a hook and I will teach him memory verses. I have a feeling he will move constantly and wear out shoes like nobody's business. I'm going to pray that I have enough energy for him. I was watching Penny (our dog) last night and thinking "These two are going to make quite the pair". I want so much for him but one thing that I truly desire is for him to be the quintessential little boy. I have no desire for him to know things too soon. I want him to stay innocent until he has to know. I want to strike a balance of shelter and knowledge of the world around him.
By no means will he be left in the dark, but I won't force him to grow up too soon. That's not fair either.
More than all of that with his personality I want for him what is written about his namessake in 2 Kings:
2 He did what was right in the eyes of the LORD and walked in all the ways of his father David, not turning aside to the right or to the left.
