It's 4:00 somewhere...

Lately Jackson's new "thing" has been asking me "Mommy, how much do you love me?" It's too funny and we play the game of holding my arms [and his arms] out as far as they will go and I'll tell him that I love him as big as an elephant [which is ginormous to him right now!!] and funny things like that. So today we play this new "game" of ours in the car and I ask him how much he loves me. He answers "As big as the moon!! Sometimes..." WHAT?!? Sometimes?? So I ask him "Jackson, what do you mean? You love Mommy all the time, don't you?" To which he replies... "No. I don't love you at 4:00 Mommy. All the time but 4:00."

I think I almost had to pull the car over I was laughing so hard. This is SUCH a fun stage to go through right now where we can talk and have conversations. Everyone always tells me that he talks so well for his age and he communicates great and I think it's because I will sit and have conversations with him. I refuse to talk baby talk to him and talk "down" to him. I love just chatting with him and he really does listen great and has an amazing heart. When I've been down these past few weeks, he gives me hugs and rubs my hand. It's amazing. My favorite thing right now from him is snuggling. He loves coming up to me and laying down next to me and snuggling. "Hold me tighter Mommy" is a great phrase to hear. It's really hard to know that in a few days, I will have to share my heart with another baby. I never thought I would doubt myself of this and I know deep down that I'll be fine but how am I going to make sure Jackson never doubts how much I love him while I'm loving on another baby? Hard stuff!

I've been talking a lot to Aaron about the baby. We keep wondering what she's going to look like. Will she have light hair like Jackson? Dark hair? No hair? What if she's really ugly but I think she's cute? Will people still tell me she's cute? If you're my friend and she's ugly, you better let me know for real! ;-) I'm so excited to meet her. I can't wait to see her and snuggle with her too. I have to keep reminding Jackson that he can't pick her up without help and that she won't be able to play with him for a little while. We'll see how well he understands...

I'm happy to hear that Jackson is such a comfort to you. It sounds like he's quite the smart little cookie.
You'll be fine... you've made it this far, right? You'll be in my prayers, as always.

I can remember those same feelings when I was pergent with Alyssa. Wondering if I could love Chastity as much as I did Alyssa or how I would be able to give Alyssa all the love that I did when it was just her. Once Chastity was here there was never any question and I also thought to my self how could you even question that? It's just something that happens without being able to explain it. Alyssa also was so involved with wanting to help so that made it a lot easier. Your family is still in my prayers.

That little Jackson is such an a sweet and funny little guy! I remember the first time i met him..he made me giggle instantly! He has such a sweet soul. He is quite a bit like his mommy. You're a strong woman..you will make it through this, I just know you will.
