parent commitment

Well baby boy you are 9 months old.  Your dad and I want to dedicate you to our heavenly father
and promise to always raise you in a Christian home, learning about Jesus.
We picked this verse for you from the Holman Christian Standard Bible:
Philippians 4:4-7
Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your graciousness be known to everyone.
The Lord is near.

6 Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.
7 And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
but I also LOVE this translation of the verse:
Philippians 4:4-7
The Message (MSG)
4-5 Celebrate God all day, every day. I mean, revel in him! Make it as clear as you can to all you meet that you’re on their side, working with them and not against them.
Help them see that the Master is about to arrive. He could show up any minute!
6-7 Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.
Jamison you are truly coming into your own, and it's amazing to watch you take shape into the little boy you are going to be. I can't get enough of you and I feel like every single day you do something new. It's astonishing to watch you grow and develop, and I'm always so excited to see what you'll do next.
This Month You:
love music so much and will "sing" along in the car
are all smiles, all the time
would stay in the bath all night if I let him
are very ticklish - especially the front of his chest, thighs, and under his arms!
starting to say "mama"
can go all the way to the top of the stairs (17 steps) without help
are learning new sounds and testing them out
are fascinated by ceiling fans and lights
love to yell and scream
are the fastest crawler ever
sits in the front of the shopping cart
love books and will crawl over to us whenever we open one - your current favorite is If I were an Owl
blows raspberries on my arms and face
have 6 teeth, 3 on the bottom and 3 on the top
aren't walking on your own yet, but you will cruise and walk along furniture and with your Lighting McQueen car.
It's really just so hard to believe that you will be one year old so soon!
Man oh man.
Happy Baby Dedication Day Jamsion, we love you so much!
"I praise You for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, Wonderful are Your works." Psalm 139:14
