Are the sweetest days really yet to come?


I heard from many parents (both moms and dads) when Jack was born who told me that each stage of his life would better than the one before. I didn't comprehend that at the time, because how does it get better than my downy-cheeked little sweet snuggly boy? Enter the boy that acts like a parrot and has his own little sense of humor.

He'll be 16 months in 5 days, and while I haven't been the best at documenting his life on a month by month basis here, I felt compelled to write down some of the sweetness today. Mostly, it's his speech that is just slaying me.

Last week he started saying ah-men at the end of our prayers. I mean, I thought I was going to buy him a pony right there on the spot because it was so adorable. Every day there is something new: bunny, dog, "oh Jack", "I don't know" (tossed up hands and shrugged shoulders included), overly dramatic "oh nooo!". The list just goes on.

He's got a lot of rhythm. I can't keep him away from the piano, and he sings while he's banging. I need some video, but about the time I have the camera rolling, he notices I'm there and stops. Clearly, I need to work on my mom power of stealth. We can't figure out where he has seen someone play and sing at the same time. At church they use a cd, so it's not there. (You know what that means: musical genius.)

These are such sweet, blessed times. I hope I never forget them.

  4. He says amen?!?! That is too cute for words!!! Love that!

    Thatcher isn't very verbal yet (poor kid couldn't hear until February when he got tubes), but he did shrug his shoulders at me this morning which was so cute!
