You are so beautiful.

A year ago I bought a lullaby CD for our future baby. I did not know who he or she would be, but I was looking forward to being a lullaby mama.

Yesterday I listened to this CD for the first time. Not for the first time with baby, although yes it was, but the first time I ever listened to it.

I will tell you what it is when I have more time, but I just wanted to share how overwhelmed with joy and love I am when I listen to that CD with my new son. One of the songs on there, and it is all piano music, is You Are So Beautiful by Lionel Richie.

You are so beautiful to me.
You're everything I hoped for,
You're everything I need.
You are so beautiful to me.

We hoped and prayed for this baby for a long time, and he is finally here. I will never forget the first time I listened to that CD with my sweet baby. We got some video of us listening to it yesterday, and I think if you were to see it you would likely expire.

When my friend Lara first held her baby in her arms, the look on her face was brighter than a thousand stars. I could not look at it without crying. It's my turn now to carry that look. I am amazed and how much we love this guy, who is not our flesh and blood, but who is a part of our hearts.

We love because He first loved us.
