A Visit With Papa (on Jamin’s 7 mo Birthday!)

today jamin turned seven months old. i can’t believe it. 🙁 🙂 such mixed emotions! i had to go and look at jeremiah’s and josiah’s 7 month birthdays…they were crawling already. jamin is close, but he’s still not anywhere near where they were. josiah was even pulling to stand and doing a bit of cruising. jamin also can’t sit up on his own yet. he can for a few seconds, but then he topples. i know he’ll catch up, and part of me is glad that he’s more on the “normal” side of the developmental scale!

sweet little jay-bug,

you are getting so big, my precious boy! you are still my angel munchkin, and you are still so adorable and wonderful! your smile is as bright as the sun. your laughs are tinkling bells. your cries are still squeaky and cute. there isn’t a day that goes by that i am not amazed by you. by your sweetness, your infectious love, your innocence. your love for everyone just shines through, and you are such a joy to have in our home. you and your brothers share such a sweet and special bond that just makes papa and i cry tears of pure happiness. i am so thankful for you, my precious son. i honestly don’t know what i would do without you. you fill a piece of my heart that was made just for you, and no one else could fill it. i love you, jamin.

love, mama
we took arby’s to the hospital for lunch, to see jerry. i knew josiah REALLY needed to see his papa, and jerry wanted to see all three boys a lot. i got some pictures today that i want to share, but i haven’t had a chance to upload them yet. it seems kind of lame to take pics of your husband in the hospital, but it was kind of like a mini family reunion, you know?

jerry is feeling so much better and so anxious to come home tomorrow. he is so bored over there. we can’t wait to have him back! the reason they wanted him to stay was that one of the medicines he’s on can have adverse side effects in the first few days, so they wanted to make sure it didn’t happen to him before he came home. jeremiah and i visited him the other night, and i visited with him until late last night. he really appreciated it.

i finally broke down and cried with him last night. it is just so scary to have your husband be in a heart hospital ward. i can’t even explain how scary it is. i am so thankful that he is ok, and i’m so blessed that he is my husband. one thing is for sure, i will not be taking him for granted.
