The end of an era is coming
We knew it would happen, but when Jack was a baby it was impossible to imagine him being anything but a baby. Then Sam came along, and it was impossible to imagine that Jack wouldn't always be a yammering toddler. However, after 2 years of outstretched arms and a declaration of "Hold you, Mommy," Jackson said "Hold ME" this week. We're just going to have to accept that he won't be a baby boy forever and the glimpses we keep catching of him as a "kid" are coming faster and faster now. His legs are longer and leaner. His sentences are more complex. His thought processes are more detailed and thorough. His problem solving skills are developing. And he actually told me to "Get out" last night instead of staying to snuggle so he could read and go to sleep. SIGH.
