Jackson and I had a pretty quiet day today. We started out the morning like any other day...mommy is on her second cup of coffee by 8am and we're watching the Today show to make sure we're up to date with what's going on with the world.
After nap we headed out for our errands and then got home right before the rain started. Finally it felt like Portland! I heard this song on the radio and it really made me think.....
Jackson was cuddled up next to me in the big chair watching the video when we got home and bobbing his head along to the music...one of his new forms of dancing and pretty dang cute :) I started singing and when i got to the Youuuuuu part he chimed in and was actually singing the word! I couldn't believe it...I looked at him with his eyes closed, head tilted up and in that moment everything stopped and all I saw was an innocent,sweet,loving and beautiful baby with the biggest grin on his face. I forgot about how he had just hit me in the face with his snack cup and how his little toes digging into my thigh was killing me...all i could think about was WOW Jesse and I made him and all of his imperfections and at times "spirited" attitude make him so perfect and who he is and I wouldn't change that for anything in this world.
He then looked at my arm and saw a little zit i had, looked into my eyes and said "owie mommy" and with tears in my eyes I said "yes Jackson, owie" and without hesitation he leaned down and gave my zit a kiss and said "owie no mommy".
Moments like these make everything worth it.
