Happy Birthday To Jack!

Today is Jack's 4th Birthday and I am wondering where all the time went. It seemed like Max was little for so long, but with Jack the time has just flown by. At the same time, I think I have enjoyed being a Mom with Jack more because I had a little more confidence with him and a lot less time to obsess over everything. I was stressed a lot with Max because he was in the ICU for a week after he was born, so I worried a lot about him. I didn't even get to hold him until he was almost three days old. But Jack I got to hold right after he was born and it made such a great difference. I even remember some nights being excited to get up with him in the middle of the night instead of begging and pleading with God to make him stop crying like I did with Max. So, I guess I learned a few things by the time I had Jack, and I sincerely apologize to Max for being my guinea pig.
One of the things I love most about Jack is his silliness and his amazing smile. No matter how tired, cranky, or down I may feel, I see his smiling face and it all goes away. I feel so lucky to have him, and hope I can be at least half the Mom he deserves.
