Yesterday, Aiden attended church for the first time. Hurray, hurrah. And according to tradition, we gave him back to God in a ceremony of dedication. God's in charge of his life, and that helps me to relax a little bit.
Here is a picture of him taken yesterday, wearing the sweater and hat that Aunt Liane made for him (picture taken by Penny).
I haven't been posting a whole lot recently, mainly because most days are pretty much the same - consisting of feeding Aiden, burping Aiden, changing his diapers, eating, sleeping, and laundry... Not very exciting material... but I am very happy, nonetheless. One smile from him makes my entire day. And it's real to me that even though, according to the world's standards, I am not being very productive ( I am not contributing to the Gross Domestic Product or anything like that), I am sustaining a new life and that is of tremendous importance. Even though it appears mundane, I am doing God's will for me right now; it is God's will to feed and burp and change this child every bit as much as it is God's will for some people to go be a missionary to China.
And I love Aiden so much, it's almost scary.
