Asher — “happy, fortunate, blessed”
Oh, little boy, you are truly your namesake. Your first year of life has been nothing short of beautiful, busy bliss and I am awestruck at the gift that God has given us in you.
I remember when I found out I was pregnant with you and the fear I felt about being able to do this “baby thing”twice. Henry was only four months old, and I was filled with anxiety about my abilities as a momma. I was living the realities of what it took to steward a life so precious and innocent and was overwhelmed with the responsibility of doing that again. All I ever wanted was to ensure that you knew only love, comfort, and safety from me and I was scared that I wouldn’t be able to deliver that twice.
That’s the funny thing about fear though, little one. Fear lies to us and attempts to rob us of the immeasurable joy and gifts that God gives us.
Once I got over the initial shock of your life growing inside me, I quickly began to fall in love with you. I fell in love with your little flutters, your strong, quick heartbeat inside my belly, your jostles that eventually turned to somersaults and full-on ninja kicks. I fell in love with your force and knew that you were going to be someone so special, so ordained, so strong — and that you were going to teach me to be strong myself....
