Joy

Spending time w/baby Zac.

In five days baby Zac will be 3 months old. Emafe has done most of the work in caring for baby Zac and her Mom has helped a lot too. In the mean time, I have been a little lost in thought after spending half of my life ambitioning for a “bright future”, safety and security. But whenever Zac laughs or giggles I feel a sense of joy sprout from the center of my chest and it spreads throughout my body. He has the cutest little laughs and I’m so happy that he’s experiencing joy at such a young age.

Living in the present moment is one of the most difficult tasks there is. Especially as an adult and after spending most of my life living for ideas about the future. This is the gift that I want to give Zac. I want to show him the magic of living in the present, living for today and living in the moment. I haven’t mastered it yet but I know that it is one of the most important aspects of being human. And it is what humanity desperately needs.

Thank you baby Zac for coming into our life, laughing, and of course crying when your hungry so that we can meet your needs. I love you baby Zac and I’m so happy seeing you grow.

I love spending time with you and your Mom too.

Baby Zac is enjoying our time together.

I love Zac's legs and feet :)
