tashalynnegregory From the very first moment I breathed you in one year ago today, you have entirely captured my heart. There has not been a single minute over the past twelve months where I have not been overwhelmed with gratitude and indescribable awe that I have been chosen to be your mama. You, my sweet boy, have eased yourself into every fibre of my being; into the deepest places of my soul, the corners I never knew existed. Your laughter and love have lightened the darkest places of my life. I sat beside you yesterday and watched you sleep and I couldn’t help but weep. I wept for the beauty that is wrapped up so purely in the innocence of your blue-grey eyes, at the thought of you growing up and changing so quickly, for the time we have had over this year, and for the person you have allowed me to become. I thought of all of the moments for which I have been there to hold you, laugh with you, comfort you, nurse you, and to think of you and only you, and I wept. You are the very best parts of your daddy and me, the heritage and legacy we have been blessed to receive. There are promises buried deep within the layers of this life that God has set out just for you. There are purposes and plans and wonders and adventures that await your discovery. As we dance together to the rhythm of this one wild and crazy life, I want you to know that our hearts will always hold you. Those places and spaces that you have captured and opened and gripped will always be yours. No matter where this life leads you or where God calls you, we will always be a safe place. With one year down and lifetime to go we pray that you always know you are exactly enough, perfectly imperfect and the joy of our lives. always. happy birthday little one xo 2w

tashalynnegregory Yesterday you turned eleven months old. I can not even begin to describe how my heart has grown to love you. So wholly and completely. I've spent every day of your 11 months with you, watching over you, nourishing you, laughing with you, crying with you, holding you, and tucking you in so closely beside my heart at the setting of each passing day. Silas you never cease to amaze your daddy and me. You bring the greatest joy we have ever known and you've taught us to slow down and discover the wonder of the world around us. You've shown us how to open ourselves up to the possibilities that come with each rising of the sun. You've taught us that humble beginnings can bring forth monumental journeys of life, love, and faith. Your laughter and 8 little teeth overwhelm us with happiness. The way you wave goodbye but only on your terms reminds us of your growing independence and will. The way you watch with wonder as your daddy builds a tower out of your blocks and then mischievously look over your shoulder at him as you knock it over reminds us that things may not always go as we plan but that out of the biggest messes a new tower can be built and we can always begin again. We love you sweet one. Our prayer for you is that as you establish your growing will and independence that you would find strength in Him whose words spoke you into existence. That your independence would be formed by being dependent completely on Him. We pray that your will would always concede to His will on earth as in heaven. We pray that you would know that you know that you are forever a joy and treasure. We will always build you up dear son, praying that even if the world mischievously knocks you down you would use the fallen pieces to simply smile and begin again. xo #silasezra #11months #sweetboy #mamasboy #myheart @agreg88 1mon

tashalynnegregory I often wonder how I got so lucky. How the God of the universe would care enough about me to give me this man. Not a day has passed since we first met that I haven't given thanks for this greatest gift. @agreg88 I love you. What an incredible honour it is that you call me wife. #sappy #hothusband #marriedup #lovehim #mywholeheart #doesntgetbetter 2mon

tashalynnegregory In the stillness of our reflection we find that we are image bearers of the One from whom all beauty flows. Though our days are but a mist in the light of eternity, the choices of today become the ripples that echo long after we have parted. So I pray for the courage to speak truth, the strength to live it out, and the grace to find redemption within the moments defined by my failure. Everyday I am grateful for so much but without the sacrifice of my Saviour it would all be meaningless. #truth #reflection #grace #thankyouJesus #hope #onearthasinheaven 2mon

tashalynnegregory Oh sweet boy... my heart can hardly fathom that ten whole months have passed since you entered this gloriously broken yet breathtakingly beautiful world. You've grown so quickly since our last monthly post and though I know your moving forward is good and lovely, my mama heart wants to stop the rotation of the earth to breathe in your sweet baby scent for just a few extra moments. Never before has time seemed so unusually cruel, yet as quickly as it passes it also yields itself on occasion affording us the momentary realization that we are truly alive. In those sweet moments of living and loving, you have learned to crawl and to pull yourself up to stand; arms and hands firmly planted on the surface of stability you've found between the couch and the table. Your world is shifting slowly from dependence to independence and we know the day will come when you will fight as hard as you can to go your own way and forge your own path not needing your daddy or me or the table or couch to support your wandering heart. We know that as you move forward in this life you will be faced with challenges that seem as difficult as the coordination of your two 10 month old feet, mountains that appear as tall as the tops of the tables appeared to your ten month old hands, and trials that may knock you to the ground in a mess of your own tears as did the many tumbles and falls your ten month old body endured. But Silas we also know that there is no mountain too high, no challenge too great, no trial too difficult that you can not overcome. You are, after all, meant for amazing things. And when the doubt creeps in as it is bound to do, you reach those hands up and you will find that His strength was there to carry you all along. And when you're out there going your own way, we pray you will always know that home will be exactly where you left it last. We love you little one xo 2mon

tashalynnegregory He is more than we could have hoped for, prayed for, dreamed of... He is the truest example of God's goodness, love, and sacrifice I've ever known. We are blessed because he is ours to walk with, look up to, fall into, laugh with, dream with, and love. He is the most gracious and forgiving. The most fun loving and carefree. The most gentle and giving. He is my best friend and Silas' favourite person on earth. He is father, friend, and lover of us. He is our greatest gift, our anchor & our light. Happy Father's Day Aaron/daddy. We love you more than you'll ever truly know and we hope you feel honored, respected, and appreciated - today & everyday. xo 3mon
