Who are you?

Will you be outgoing, reserved, artistic, athletic, blonde or brunette?

What is your name?

Why is it so difficult for us this time? What is it about you that wants to remain a mystery?

What will you teach us?

So far you’ve already shown me to “be still and know,” the importance of names, savoring the moment, and the necessity of connection.

In a few short weeks we’ll get to hold you, kiss your nose and smell that new baby smell.

But it will take years for us to discover the answers to these questions and so much more.


This week, in honor of Mother’s Day, I’m writing a series about my kids.

Monday was about my oldest, Elijah.
Tuesday was about my princess, Cora.
Yesterday was about the baby, who’s soon to be the big brother, Ezra.

    love that sweet pic!

    1. Oh Keli! I just clicked over to your blog and loved what you had to say about being mother. It really is a different experience with each one…and the more I have the less capable I feel and the more I realize that I need to rely on Him.
