I figured if you're going to follow in somebody's footsteps, why not the steps of our lord and savior?

So I've had a kid for almost six weeks now I'm getting pretty close to becoming an expert. Actually that could not be further from the truth. It seems like Tyler is changing more and more every day and I can't really keep up or figure out what he needs. Lately I've been wondering why God created us to come into the world as a baby. Really, Tyler can't do anything. The things that he does that get Theresa and me excited are lifting his head on his own (I've been doing that as long as I can remember) and smile. Other than that he cries, eats, poops, pees, farts, burps, hiccups, sneezes, coughs, sleeps, spits up, and every couple of days he is given a bath. Really that's about it. God knew what he was doing when he created the whole baby thing. I think it's more for the parents than the children. It's hard to put into words what I mean but having a kid puts the whole God thing into perspective. Lately I've been looking forward to all of the things that I get to do with Tyler or at least teach him to do. Stuff like playing soccer, playing baseball, teaching him to work with his hands, stuff like that. I want him to follow in my footsteps, do the same things that I did. I definitely wouldn't be disappointed if he didn't but as of right now that's what I have been looking forward to. The thing that's convicting is that the most important thing that I want to teach him is to follow in the footsteps of our Lord and Savior, but that doesn't register as naturally as sports or working. It will be interesting learning how to raise a kid to love Jesus more than any of those things.

Dude, Tyler is getting big! I just saw him last night and he was in a car seat, now he has tattoos and he's helping you and brad build basements, that's freaking awesome!

Tyler's the best Mexican we've got! You should see that kid hang drywall!!! Now if we could only teach him him to not pee in mt. dew bottles and poop in drywall mud boxes we'd be set.

You have a pretty good community around you who will be great in teaching Tyler about Jesus. I think if you keep the community you have now in tact Tyler will not only hear the word often. He will see Christ in the actions of your friends and family.

Just keep him away from all of us during competitive events.

Darren said...

Oh yeah and you guys will do great even without the community. But I have always had the philosophy that it takes a village to raise a child.

"It takes a village" Darren you should copywrite that.
