Precious Memories

Today, my baby turned 4! I can hardly believe how quickly the time has flown by. It seems like just yesterday he was born. As we hit this milestone and he gets ready to go to preschool for the first time, I look back and remember what an absolutely beautiful baby he was and what a handsome young man he is turning into!

One thing that popped into my mind this morning as I thought about my baby turning 4 (yes I can't get over that!!) was how incredibly happy I was that my mom was able to be there for his birth. With Emmah she was there too, and that was a fluke that turned into a blessing. It is so special that she was able to share in the amazing miricle of their births. Now especially since she is gone, I cherish that memory. I have been having a hard time lately, with my mom being gone. Summers were always our time, to hang out, do fun things with the kids, and just make memories. She was such a wonderful Memah and I can only hope that Jake remembers her. I plan to keep her memory alive as much as possible, she was a truly remarkable woman and I can only hope to be half the mom she was to me.
