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
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!!
