17 Months already?!?!

Jack is 17 months old today, and I just cannot believe how fast time has flown by.  We spent some time with our sweet new baby niece Brooklyn and our adorable almost 3-month old nephew Zack tonight, and all I could think about was how Jack was at their ages.  It's so amazing how much he has grown, changed, developed and learned in the past 17 months.  I cannot tell you how very blessed I feel to have such a special and amazing little man in my life.  It sure has been a fun 17 months, and I know that our future will be full of so much more excitement!

I love you so much, my sweet angel!  Happy 17-Month Birthday, Jack!  Don't grow up too fast!

Thank You God

Sent straight from heaven up above
Came an angel for me to love
To hold and rock and kiss good night
To wrap my arms around real tight

To cuddle and nurture and watch him play
To kiss his boo-boo's all away
To keep him safe and warm & count all his toes
To hold the tissue for him when he blows his little nose

To laugh at his jokes, to clap as he sings
To tell him all the joy in my life that he brings
To clean up his play dough, to pull his legos apart
To pin up his drawings and tell him it's art

To watch his first day of school on the bus all alone
To fight back the tears as I make my way back home
To applaud real loud when he's in his first play
To help him with his homework at the end of his day

To adore and cherish and watch him grow
To guide and teach him all that I know
To see him through good times and help him through bad
To share in his happiness and cry when he's sad

To hold him close and be by his side
To watch him through life as my heart fills with pride
To help him with decisions, the best that I can
To know that someday he'll be a fine young man
