A Life of Grace

I took this shot the other day at the park. I love Theo’s little expression of sweetness and curiosity, it totally captures so much of his personality. He’s nearly one now, just a few short weeks away, and somehow it’s taking me this long to realize he’s really, truly a part of our family and not some extra little person that lives with us. Maybe it’s because I have a hard time seeing myself in him at all: he’s so good natured and easy-going and I can relate a little more to Titus’ fire-cracking, head-butting self. It has been a joy to have a baby around the house again, even with the inconsistent sleep and sibling rivalry. I’ve come to appreciate the fact that babies don’t argue.

I could really relate to your sentiments about not fully realizing that Theo was part of your family… that’s a bit how I feel about Adia sometimes too. I think sometimes it’s that Steele is such an obvious part of our family – always talking, playing, doing something new – and sometimes Adia is just there quitely, sweetly – not fully participating yet. I love seeing their little personalities come out and getting to know them as people. What an unexpected, lovely part of parenting.
