For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. ~Psalm 139: 13-16
I often think about when Seamus was waiting patiently to be in our arms. Or was it me who was waiting not so patiently. I praise God often for the gift he has given to Ryan, Cyrus and I. I can not explain the joy we feel when we look at our precious little one. The sense of contentment I have when I hold him in my arms, or the overwhelming sense of love, devotion, peace and protection I have as we rock in the wee hours of the night. Thank you God for answering my prayers, and knitting him perfectly in my womb, and allowing us the privileged of knowing him on this side of heaven. I am in awe of how good your grace really is.
Seamus was knit together in love, as was the beautiful "woobie" in the above picture. Everyone, in our home has their very own woobie. Ryan's mom made Ryan one when he was a baby. She made me one when Ryan and I got engaged, she made Cyrus one before he was born, and now Seamus has been given his. Ryan brought this back from Boston when he was up there for the Head of the Charles. Then he forgot it at Liberty, so we just got it on Friday. We gave it a wash and dry and snuggled with it on the couch for the first time yesterday, which happened to be the day Seamus turned eight months old! Isn't it beautiful? I love the colors. It is a beautiful green and a deep chocolate brown. I can't wait to decorate Seamus's big boy room around these colors.
Thank you Nona for taking the time to knit Seamus his blanket. I love it so much, and I know he will love it as much as we all love ours. I know that he will treasure it always.
