Night time wishes.

I should be sleeping.

But I can't stop staring at one of the three most beautiful faces in the world.

Brennan and I have been bed-mates since the beginning of our Michigan vacation.   Although I'm a bit sick of getting kicked in the face several times a night, I've thoroughly enjoyed staring at his sweet face as I drift off to sleep at night.  As I'm sure most mothers do, I often stare in amazement at the perfection I was able to create (with maybe a teeny bit of help from God.  Oh, and Brian). 

I stare at that sweet peaceful face, complete with eyelashes for days and newly acquired scar over his eyebrow and wonder what God has in store for him. 

I wonder what kind of boy he'll grow into - will he like sports or be more studious, class clown or class president, or maybe just blend in with the crowd.

I wonder what kind of man he'll grow into - will he be outgoing like his Daddy or more introspective like his Mama?

I wonder where life will take him - if he'll stray far from us or stay close to home, wherever that may be.

I wonder who he'll choose as a partner in this crazy moment in time we call life. 

I wonder if he'll ever know the intensity of the love I have for him, and I'm certain he won't until he brings his own children into the world.

More than anything, I just hope for happiness for him.  If I could give him the world I would, but ultimately what's important is guidance, wisdom, and my unending love.  And I hope and pray that it's enough for not only my oldest baby, but for all three of them.

I write for me. 100%. BUT it definitely makes my day when someone tells me that they enjoy reading my blog. Or that they hate it. Whatev.

So don't spare me your words of wisdom, encouragement, or mindless babble. I enjoy it all :)
