This guy.

He loves:
- water
- cars
- dirt
- Sophie
- our plants
- cheese
- apple juice
- hugs 
- kisses
- school
- coloring
- Little Critter books
- sleeping with mama
- chalk
- jumping on daddy
- facetiming with mimee and popo
- super heros
- talking

He is my best friend, the best hugger, gives the best kisses, and loves his mama and daddy. He is genuinely the light of my life. I cry when I leave him with his grandparents, which we do every single work day. He says bye to us and waves. He also tells us to have a good day and sweet dreams. It's the sweetest thing ever and makes me tear up! I'm such a sap. He says please and thanks when needed. He listens, for the most part. We've tried really hard to not say NO to everything and let him figure things out on his own. Of course, we say no when needed, but not everything requires a NO. He's started hitting a little, but we're working on teaching him that it hurts and that it's not fun. He's gone to time-out a couple times for it, but we explain it every time and he says sorry and gives hugs. He's pretty sensitive and usually cries when he realizes that it hurt us. 
Jack is the sweetest little boy.

Mother's Day.

From the moment that I knew I was going to be a mom, my heart has been so full. 
All the little kicks and hiccups while I was pregnant filled every little hole in my heart. 
Jack brings something to my life that only he can. He is an amazing little man.
He's so big now and talking so much. He's growing up fast and I'm loving every minute of it. 
 I am the mom I am because of this lady.
She has taught me how to be a great mom and is still teaching me every day. 
She is the best mom anyone could ever ask for. 
Happy Mother's Day, mama.
I love you very much!! 
This morning I woke up to beautiful roses, a card, and donuts from my love. Then Jack woke up and told me "happy modder's day!" 
Best Mother's Day yet. 

Happy Mother's Day to all my mommy friends out there! I hope you all have a great day full of love!
