Jack is just about 2 1/2.. And he's just.. So sweet and so quick to kiss... And if his lips don't line up just right with yours he kisses again and again till its just right..

But my cowboy jack has a newly discovered temper...this boy is scrappy!
But when he uses his powers for good-
He loves to pretend he's "fireman" (Spider-Man) and act like superman... Loves to wear his cowboy hat and pretend to lasso the girls.

His best friend in the whole wide world is pop. And every nap ends with him in his crib just talking to his pop!

Jack loves his food. Loves to get his little snack cup and sit at his table. Or " watch a show and eat a snack .. On couch?! Yes good idea Jackboy!"

He says:
'Thank you, your welcome'
'Uh guys what are you doing guys?'
" cmere me want to show you sumpi'
Good morning mommy! Me think me will have some... Milk today....
This is tasty!

When Jackboy laughs he covers his mouth. To cute.
And frequently walks around with in hand in the pocket of his jeans.
Holds his hands while lounging.
Loves to snuggle right in.
Playing baseball with daddy is top of his list .
He's growing so fast.

Wish it could be easy-Why is life so messy
Why is pain a part of us-There are days I feel like
Nothing ever goes right-Sometimes it just hurts so much

But You're here - You're real
I know I can trust You
Even when it hurts -Even when it's hard
Even when it all just falls apart
I will run to You
Cause I know that You are
Lover of my soul-Healer of my scars
You steady my heart 

I'm not gonna worry-I know that You got me
Right inside the palm of your hand
Each and every moment-What's good and what gets broken
Happens just the way that You plan

And I will run to You
And find refuge in Your arms
And I will sing to You
Cause of everything You are
You steady my heart 

~kari jobe - steady my heart

You know that perfectly cozy moment when you wake up all warm and toasty.. Your sandmans arm is just right wrapped around you.. Sigh....

Then he slips out to go make coffee and work out..and you roll over and spread out and it's great...sigh

Then you feel delicious sleep creeping in..

Then he hands you crying Ella...
Then you hear Ava's feet running to you
Then Jacks little voice calling mamaaaaaa

And you slip out of bed into the cold ... Snuggle some babies down the stairs...
he hands you your coffee and glasses.

And then joy seeps in . Joy abundant

Yeah- that just happened. And I'm choosing joy...
