Today this cutie turns 6. And I can’t stop crying.
How can my itty bitty baby boy be SIX?!? Before I know it, he will be 18 and not wanting me to hung and kiss and snuggle him. Pretty soon, he’ll have a wife of his own to snuggle with, and a couple kids…
Thinking like this makes me want to cherish EVERY SINGLE MOMENT with my boy. Every little second when he drives me nuts, I need to remember that I’m going to blink and he’ll be gone.
Today I keep thinking about that little baby that was handed to me on January 18, 2007, at 2:15 PM. He had a little old man hair-do and a wrinkled up face, but he stole my heart…instantly. There was no doubt that God had something great in store for him. Thinking back over the years, I see how God used Jake to change me…make me a better person, and see HIM in everything in life. Yes, I believe with all my heart that God used Jacob to help me understand our Heavenly Father’s love for us. It’s powerful how He does that.
So today, sweet baby boy, as I make your birthday dinner and cake, I will be praying for you. I’m praying that you give your whole heart to Jesus, that you let Him guide you in this terribly confusing world and that you know with all your heart…without a shadow of a doubt, that your mommy and daddy love you with everything inside them.
Happy Birthday Jacob Brandon Wollmer Miraflor. You Rock.
