Ezra at 10 Months


I am daily struck by the thousand little perfect details God orchestrated in the making of my beautiful boys. The first year of life is such a treasure to behold even as it stings with all of the cascading changes. Ezra's long eyelashes; his wispy golden hair; his sleep wrinkles on his cheeks; his duck lips as he mimics drinking in his sleep---all of these tiny flickers of the complex and incredible soul that's housed in this little body. I can't hold on to these gems for more than a moment before they've been swallowed up with something new. It doesn't matter that I snap photo after photo; I'm always grasping at smoke. Why are you so big, my little Ez? Slow down.
