Tonight my hubby and I were staying SO on top of things and ahead of the game shopping for Jacks birthday gifts. (Did I mention his birthday is tomorrow?? I think my procrastination is rubbing off on the fam!) The stroller was at home while we were at the mall; and dont you know we are too cheep to spend $5.00 to "rent" a stroller that looks like a little car!! Jack would have loved to drive around in a car! But no, we had to carry him all over the mall (we were in a hurry so we couldnt let him walk...the kid moves at a toddlers pace...but then again, hes a toddler.)
Craig was carrying him and I swear, the kid gets smarter every day! He says, in his broken English, "I sorry. I sorry. Daddy tired. Too big. Heavy. Mama carryary you (meaning him)" I mean, did he really put those thoughts together?? Does he really understand that he gets heavy?? Hes not even 2!! I can still claim that until tomorrow. Craig wasnt even complaining...I think he was just shifting Jacks weight around. Wow...he amazes me. He is SUCH a cutie! I cant imagine my life without him. And he will NEVER be too heavy. I love having him in my arms!
And also today, he got to be a big helper. He always helps the midwife turn on the doppler and he helps find the babys heartbeat. Before we start, he says, "Listen Sophies heart" and when he has the doppler on my belly (with a little help from the midwife) his face lights up and he says, "Sophies heart. Sophies heart." He is getting so vocal, and so clear with his words. The midwife today asked how old he was and stated his speech was very clear for his again. I think I mentioned in a previous blog that hes advanced....I think it was the potty training post. Ahh, what a proud mama to have a son so advanced...I did mention he is starting first grade didnt I??
