Jack Turned 4

So much has happened since I last blogged.  It's a constant frustration that I'm sure many moms experience.  I so want to document every day of our lives, after all this is our living journal.  The problem is that if you really want to live every day there is hardly any time left to actually sit down and write about it.  Until I figure out how to find a balance, or hit the jackpot and hire a full time assistant, I'll just keep doing my best.

Jack turned 4 in September.  We celebrated by doing what he loves most.  Playing in a bouncy house on a wide open field with lots of room to run and be wild.  12 of his sweet friends came to play and we celebrated in Optimus Prime style!





Oh, this precious boy.  There are not enough words in any language to begin to express how much I love this child.  I still find myself questioning the timing of his birth, so close to Lucy's diagnosis and after we had tried so long to have him.  Even though I wonder I know in my heart that Jack was sent to be a source of love, purpose and sometimes a distraction at such a hard time in my life.  I am so grateful to be his mother.  He is so full of energy, determination and love.  Jack gives the biggest and best hugs and when he sets his mind to something there is no stopping him.  I joke and say that I always wanted a house full of boys but clearly God knew best.  This one keeps me on my toes every minute of every day.  I'm quite sure I couldn't have handled more than one of him!






I'm not sure how I ended up with no pictures of Erik's parents but I promise they were there.  The birthday weekend was so chaotic that I couldn't have made it without them.  Jack wasn't too worried about his family being at his party but it meant the world to me.  We have been blessed with two wonderful sets of parents and amazing siblings.  Being all together makes any birthday more special.  

Until next time...you can find me living life and loving this little boy named Jack.

  3. I can't believe Jack is 4 years old! Started reading your blog when Lucy was sick and didn't realize so much time had lapsed! So glad everyone is doing well and you have 3 beautiful kids.
