Happy Three Months, Morrow!

Morrow Isaiah is three months old today. It's more exciting for the other five people in this house than it is for him! We all love having him as part of our family and we are finding joy everyday in watching him grow and change.

Given the meaning of Morrow's name, I thought that Spurgeon's Morning by Morning devotion from yesterday was fitting to celebrate Morrow's three months.  The scripture reads "The Lord has done great things for us; we are glad." (Psalm 126:3). And Spurgeon expounds, "In looking back it would be wrong to deny that we have been in the Slough of Despond and have crept along the Valley of Humiliation, but it would be equally wicked to forget that we have been through them safely and profitably; we have not remained in them, thanks to our Almighty Helper and Leader who has brought us out to a place of abundance." 

God brought us out of the sorrow of night and into the joy of the morning. He brought us out of the "slough" and the "valley" to a place of abundance.  A morning and an abundance which include this sweet babe (and his siblings, of course). 

GROW! And grow some more. It seems to be the theme with this "little" guy. Morrow weighed in this morning at 18 lbs 7 oz.  Last month, at his two month check-up, his height was off the charts. He is wearing 6-9 month clothes most of the time, but I can still squeeze him into a 3-6 month outfit if I'm desperate for a clean outfit!

We love having this chubby baby. He laughs and smiles the whole time he is awake, which still isn't very often. But there is something about a laughing fat baby that is so jolly. Morrow likes to eat and sleep, a lot. His favorite activity after those is bath time or watching his siblings - he is definitely well entertained around here.

The Lord has done great things for us; we are glad!!!
