I Feel Special...

This little jacket, hanging by the doorway... makes me feel special...


This binki, in my purse... makes me feel special...


When I am holding Jackson in sacrament and he starts smiling and laughing at the couple behind us, that makes me feel special... mostly because I used to be the person sitting behind the cute babies at church and now I have one of my very own cute babies.

Adorable Story: So lately Jackson has found his voice and my little man just talks and talks all day. At church on Sunday when we started singing the first hymn, so did he! He hadn't made a peep before that and as soon as everyone started singing so did he, it was SO cute! And, tonight when I was singing to him he popped his binki out and started singing with me! It seriously metls my heart!

Jackson is SO funny- he loves his hands in his mouth...

I have always loved Jackson (obviously), but I am really just falling in love with him more and more everyday. We have this gorgeous big picture of the Temple on our wall and Jackson was looking at it a little bit ago and I was telling him all about the Temple and how he'd get to go there one day before he goes on his mission and yep, you guessed it- I started crying! I can't imagine not seeing my baby for 1 day- how could I do 2 years?!?!?

And, my cute friend Whitney put this song on her blog called Never Grow Up by Taylor Swift and yep, you guessed it, I cry literally everytime I hear it! This song makes me want to just snuggle my baby all day long (I do anyways), but seriously makes me realize how tiny and precious this time in my life and Jackson's life is. I honestly would do anything for my baby boy and I hope he will always know that!

Here is the cutest video you'll ever see- it'll probably win an award soon... Don't laugh at me in the background- if you have kids you know you do anything and everything to get them to laugh and if you don't have kids, you just wait- you'll sound like an idiot in the back ground of all your videos too, I'm sure of it!



Go ahead, watch it again- I know you want to- I won't judge you...

I thank the Lord everyday for giving me the privilege to be his mother and know that it truely is the most amazing blessing in the world!

I hope you all have a great week, if you watch Jackson's video I'm positive you will!

LOVE YA!

I also love his thumb-sucking picture. Of course, I'm partial to thumb-sucking, it's so freaking cute, how can you not be?
