just snuggled up next to me in the hospital room? That snowy December night he was born couldn't have been 4 years ago already?! I just started calling him Bubba and Bubba just turned one, this can't be!
I'm late blogging about his birthday because we had internet issues for most of December, glad to be back. And, since I've slacked at blogging I'll go ahead and confess that, yes, his present wasn't wrapped. Oops!
The next morning, after I'd wished him a happy birthday and hugged him up and he'd eaten breakfast, I was sitting nursing Laynee. He came over and sat on the arm of the chair like he does often. I mentioned how big he was, being 4, and he said, "Yeah, and I still fit in your lap!" I agreed and he said, "Joseph told me, I'm not too big to sit in your lap!" I realized something had happened so I agreed and said, "Why did Joseph tell you that?" "Because, I was crying last night, because you said I couldn't sit in your lap anymore." My heart sank and I asked Joseph about it and he said, "Yeah, he was crying and crying last night because he thought he was too big to sit in your lap." I clarified that he will never be too big to sit in my lap, he can always sit with me. It was such a sad thing to know I had caused him to cry about that, but it was really sweet that he was that upset about it too.
He is just the brightest blessing, love him inside and out. I can see that he is really growing and changing, so quickly. I'm trying hard to savor and soak him up. He's a busy boy, he's rough and loves to wrestle with pretty much anyone who will play with him, but especially Joe. There is nothing gentle about him, his love is fierce.
He is precious. He tells me he loves me multiple times a day. he gives me kisses on the lips multiple times a day, per his insisting that I have to give him a kiss. He tells me I'm beautiful at random times. His heart is even bigger than his giant smile and it's filled with so much love.
I thank God for this BradyBoy of mine. I can't believe I get to be his mom, 4 years, flying by!
