Yesterday, Jon walked Cameron down the street to his cousin's house to play. On their way back, Cameron spotted some little yellow wildflowers in someone's yard, and he ran to pick them. "Mama! Mama!" Jon said that he yelled. My sweet little boy picks flowers for me! When they walked in the house, Cameron again yelled "Mama! Mama?" trying to find me. I greet him at the door and he hands me the flowers. Such imperfect little flowers, yet so perfect.
Most kids I know go through phases on which parent they prefer over the other. Right now, that's definitely me! I'm really trying to soak it all- I'll admit that I tend to get a little sad knowing Cameron won't be my "one and only" in a few months. Jon has been working long days and hours lately (which is great) and it leaves us spending a lot of time together. There are days (like 6 out of the 7) where I'm exhausted beyond belief and I can't wait to put him down for the evening so I can sit down and enjoy a little bit of free time. A lot of times though, I want to get him right back up and play with him and love on him some more. I love this boy with all my being!
He is really going through a word explosion right now- he talks non stop. Anytime we get in the car to go somewhere, it's constantly "car! truck! bus! mail man! airplane!", over and over and over.
In other exciting news, we find out what we're having this Friday! I'm so excited; some days I want another boy, and other days I really want a girl. Either way, I'm ready to know! =) I know I've been terrible at updating lately, but I'll be back as soon as I find out!
