Beautiful Boy

Since Jackson was only a couple months old I've sang this song to him. He's always had such a precious face to me. He's such a Momma's boy. He's spoiled beyond belief, but I think he's perfect to a T! LOL

He loves his mommy and his na-na's! LOL He gets excited to see Daddy come home from work everyday and always runs to greet him, and adores his big brother. I'm blessed beyond belief. I don't know why GOD found me worthy enough to give me Jacob and Jackson, but he has for some crazy reason.

Tonight I'm thankful for my baby boy who's growing too quickly for my liking. He's closer to a year and a half than a year now. He has his own personality that's for sure, and boy is it strong! Tonight he got out the wax paper and I told him to put it up,and he did. I stood there in awe that he "knows" this and follows directions. He still seems like such a baby to me. I think because Jordyn had died before Jacob was born, I never got to view him as the "little brother " that he also is. I feel like I've parented 2 "oldest" children and now with Jackson parenting him is so different, because Jacob's here to be that big brother. He's a wonderful big brother. He loves Jackson, gets annoyed with him at times, but loves him with such intensity. It humbles me beyond belief to be a mother.

Tonight I'm thanking GOD for not my 1 beautiful boy, but for both of my beautiful boys (always loving my beautiful girl)...so with that I will end with John Lennon's beautiful words about his beautiful boy, that has been sung by many mommy and daddy's in love with their own:

Close your eyes,
Have no fear,
The monsters gone,
He's on the run and your daddy's here,

Beautiful,
Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,

Before you go to sleep,
Say a little prayer,
Every day in every way,
It's getting better and better,

Beautiful,
Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,

Out on the ocean sailing away,
I can hardly wait,
To see you to come of age,
But I guess we'll both,
Just have to be patient,
Yes it's a long way to go,
But in the meantime,

Before you cross the street,
Take my hand,
Life is just what happens to you,
While your busy making other plans,

Beautiful,
Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,
Darling,
Darling,
Darling Sean.

JOHN LENNON - "Beautiful Boy(Darling Boy)" lyrics

I LOVE this song!  It's just one of those "always makes me cry" songs (then again, everything makes me cry!)

ROFL! Robin! I definately understood! Trust me that boy gets tons and tons of kisses everyday!
He's that perfect mixture of sweetness and orniness!
