Who would’ve thought that I could love this little man so much? I tell Ella all the time, “Momma’s got a new man”! I’m in love with a fat little bald cutie named Sam. He is my absolute delight. What’s even greater is sister and daddy are equally taken. Brandon has said many times who would’ve known this little boy would be such a heart breaker to us. I can’t tell you how many countless hours we’ve all spent gathered around him, making faces, laughing, smiling and kissing on Sam.
I have laughed on many occasions when people have asked me “is he a good baby”? I wonder what are the options in answering that question? Have you ever heard someone answer “no, he’s a bad, bad baby”! All baby’s are good-but I must say Sam is sweet natured with a few quirks! He goes to sleep angry but wakes up happy; he loves getting a bath but hates being dried off. We spent the first few weeks of his life holding him ALL the time-even at night-now he won’t let you rock him to sleep. Of course we love him, quirks and all.
He is a long awaited gift from the Father and we are thankful for every day with him. He has been healthy and a delight to the Cox and Kirk families. Best of all he has made one little lonely girl the happiest big sister around. For years with every prayer out of her mouth, Ella asked God to “give us a baby”. God’s timing is always perfect and Ella is at an age where she is able to enjoy Sam in a way that she may not have been able to at a younger age. She delights in him-her heart is bonded to his and I know they will be life long companions.
Sam is more than we could have ever hoped or dreamed of. Scripture is clear that as much as we love to give our children gifts; how much more the Father wants to lavish his blessings on us. Sam is clearly “heaven sent”!
