How is it possible that he is my size? How? We just went to the doctor because he had Whooping Cough (yes, he is vaccinated) and he measured 5'2". I am just shy of 5'3". My attempts at keeping him little have failed. We are coming into a new stage. The pre-teen years and it has been a trying couple of weeks. We are moving through uncharted territory and I am struggling to keep my head up, but at the end of the day, I will always love this boy no matter what. I know that he has such a kind heart and that he loves Jesus. I know that all of this "stuff" is just part of growing up and we will move through it. Somedays, I might not be moving through it with a lot of grace or patience, but I am thankful for a God that shows me grace and patience.
