As a friend of mine recently put it, "When we become parents, we are so excited to teach our kids new things. But really, God uses parenting to teach THE PARENTS new things!" Since becoming a mom, God has been working on me. The number one lesson he wants this control freak to learn, is that I am NOT in control! I am having to put Colt's needs infront of my own, even if it's not convenient for me or doesn't fit into my schedule. Even though I am responsible for my son, some things are simply out of my control. For example, this week I dropped my son on the floor. He is fine, but it scared us both. From this I am learning that I can't control everything. There will be accidents (probably more to come, especially having a curious little boy on our hands :) and God can use whatever happens for the good of those who love Him! It is never easy for a stubborn person like me to learn a lesson (usually I have to learn it the hard way). So when I do learn something new, I am humbled that our GRACIOUS God would take the time to repeatedly try to get through to me. Unfortunately, it took me dropping my son for me to finally realize my control problem. Fortunately, God is in control and HE protected Colt!
Now onto this week's pictures :)
Colt is starting to laugh! It's adorable. He kinda goes, "He. He."Colt and Molly during "tummy time"
