Roscoe's First Words

The doctors have all told us that Roscoe's mental development will be a little different from the normal track for a baby, but over his first 2-3 years he should be able to catch up to normal. In some ways he'll make progress according to the date when he as born (October 6th). In other ways he'll make progress according to his expected due date (December 24th). In still other ways, he'll be behind both of those due to his extended NICU stay.

In a surprising turn of events this past week, Roscoe broke the pattern by speaking his first words at just over 5 months old! He was a little bit tired at the time, but you can clearly make out the words as his mouth moves:
What a bright young man!

On a serious note, each time I pray I ask God to grant wisdom to Roscoe. It feels weird to pray for a baby to have wisdom, but I am confident that these constant petitions will pay dividends in Roscoe's life down the road. Almost every day since I was ~18 years old I have asked God to give me wisdom. Now it is Roscoe's turn.
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God,
who gives generously to all without finding fault,
and it will be given to you. - James 1:5
