Dear Jack

 
You remind me a lot of your Daddy.

I think you got his gift of always knowing the right thing to say.

It's a great gift to have... because as the saying goes,

"...people will always remember how you made them feel."
-Maya Angelou

Yesterday you asked me a lot of questions about my pregnancy with you.  

You asked how I knew you were in there and I explained what a pregnancy test was and how you pee on a stick.

Two lines means you're pregnant, one means you're not.

You laughed a lot.  You thought I was joking.  

You rolled around on the queen bed while we all slowly woke up together (you, Jude & me). 

You asked how you got there, and I told you God put you there... that getting pregnant is a lot like magic.

I told you that you were a special gift from God.

I told you I was lucky that God chose me to be your Mama.  And you told me you were lucky too.

I confessed that I remembered the exact moment when I found out I was pregnant with you.  I remember feeling every emotion in the book, excited, nervous, scared...

"Scared?"  You asked me.

And I said, "Yes scared... I'd never been a Mama before.  I wanted to be a good one."

And then you said it... typing it out makes me tear up all over again.

You said...

"And you was."

                                                         My first born and the one who made me a Mama,
                                                          You will always hold a very special place in my heart,
                                                                                     Love you always,
                                                                                           Mommy
