S: RYKER THOMAS CLOBES THE FIRST YEAR
FC: RYKER THOMAS CLOBES | THE FIRST YEAR | “Every good and perfect gift is from above.” – James 1:17
1: Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother's womb. I thank you, High God -- you're breathtaking! Body & soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration -- what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth: all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I'd even lived one day. Psalm 139:13-16 | 8 weeks | 5 months
2: December 23, 2008 | 8:14 A.M. | 19 Inches Long | 6 Lbs. 2.6 Oz. | I will praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14
3: FIRST FEEDING WITH DAD
4: A Mother's love for her son is pure and special. It can not be broken or reckon with. It's a kind of love that softens even the hardest of hearts. Love between mother and son is strong and visible from the sea. It brings peace of mind and drys sad tears. It can bring a man to his knees and make him weep. A mother's love for her son is not hidden or shy, but is everlasting that grows stronger each day. | MEETING MOM | Meeting Mom
