my beautiful boy
It's the simplest of things that make me smile. Today was special to me in the fact that it was just me and Jacob for a few hours. Maiya was napping at my parents' house and it was a gorgeous sunny day so Jacob and I walked to the local mall to buy him a sticker book and some new sneakers. To walk hand in hand with my little guy chatting away beside me was comforting and familiar. As much as I love both my children, I crave alone time with my oldest since Maiya, being the baby, has demanded more attention, and Jacob, always the understanding child, found ways to be busy with Daddy. I love the fact that my husband has been so hands on with the children, but I often find myself envious of not being able to give Jacob the attention he needs and deserves as well. So days like today mean the world to me. I don't realize till we spend time together like this how much I really miss him. He, like all children, is growing up much too fast.
