Things that make Adam happy...

I have pictures and other fun stuff to add to our blog, but for some reason I'm having a hard time getting them off of the camera. Never fear - I will figure it out and get to it soon (or rather, Scott will figure it out and then I'll get to it!!). We've had a good couple of weeks since Jackson came to live with us, and I've been feeling very cozy in the little cocoon we've built around ourselves. We don't go out much - take Adam to preschool, go to the grocery store - stuff like that. Adam did start up swimming lessons again this week, so that's been an extra outing, but really we've just been holed up at home. I guess it all has to end sometime... we will be re-joining the world this weekend as we venture out to church for the first time since Jackson was born. I can't believe he will be a month old this coming Wednesday!!
Anyway - on to the title of this post - the other night Adam woke up around 3:00, stood outside his bedroom door and yelled "Mommy - I had a bad dream!!". Scott slept through it, and I had just finished feeding Jackson, so I was already awake, which meant that I went in to see if I could get him back to sleep. After I sent him to go potty, we climbed in his bed and I asked him if he could go back to sleep. He said he had a bad dream and couldn't sleep, so I told him to think about things that make him happy. We talked about it for a little bit, and he gave me a short and sweet list:
The Things that make Adam happy:
1. Optimus Prime and Megatron (of course!!)
2. Uncle Brian (this really shouldn't surprise me!)
3. Wrestling with Daddy
4. Baby Jackson
5. Noah and Talia
6. Primary
At first, I was a little miffed that I didn't make the list of things that make him happy, but I guess I can live without being on that list right now - because, when he was scared, he called for Mommy! It makes me so happy to have that name and to hear it come from a sweet 4-year old! I feel blessed beyond measure to be the mommy to two sweet boys! I may not make the list, but I know I make a difference in his life every day!!

I thnk moms never make the list because our children think it is obvious that we are number 1!

That's cute. Is that list in the order Adam gave it? (Sure it might be hard to remember exactly what went on at 3 in the morning...) If that's the right order, I'm surprised megatron was before Uncle Brian!

Sarah - amazingly, megatron did beat out Uncle Brian. I'm pretty sure I got the order pretty close! Optimus Prime and Megatron were definately number one!
