Grady's Mama

Well, most of the time I get on here and blab about things that are somewhat related and at times not at all related to our son who will be born in late June/early July!

Today I'm breaking the mold!! I know, it's scary, but just follow along. I want to write about something that is directly related to Grady.... his mom... my beautiful wife.

As much as I feel my love for this little guy growing and welling up inside, I feel so much more my love for her growing. It's growing for her it seems in proportion to her belly :) Sometimes it seems like I kiss her goodnight and wake up in the morning feeling like Grady's grown even more and my love for her has grown right along with him. Everything seems to be accellerating, moving so fast, but I think it is so beautiful that love is not lost in the midst of everything; it hasn't fallen behind. In fact, it is not only keeping up, but it is living, breathing, thriving, beating more than ever.

I know that many of you already believe this, but Jen is going to be the greatest mother. She is so deeply passionate and full of love and kindness. It is the greatest gift in my life that I get to experience this as her husband and soulmate. I can't wait for our sweet baby Grady to know this love too.

I could go on and on, but I'll sum it up with this: I think I've only seen the beginning of Jen's love and beauty. The best is yet to come!

Grady, you are truly blessed! Your mother's love is an extraordinary gift.

WOW!!! Jen, you are so blessed. Aubrey, you are such an amazing person and I am so thankful that my sister has a man that loves her so dearly. You guys are an amazing example of what Gods love really is in a culture that has somewhat forgotten how to love. I love you guys so much and cant wait to be a part of this little mans life.

Just you wait...the best IS yet to come! The toughness that our wives show during labor and childbirth take your love for them to a whole new level. It is amazing, and there are no other words to describe it.
Great post as always!!
Hip, Hip, Hooray for the wives! :)
