An adorable and precious moment to me each day is after the kids get out of the bath tub. So clean and sweet, love it! Well, here lately for about a month now, after Jax is out of the bath I wrap him in a towel and hold him like a baby and sing to him...Rock A Bye Baby. He loves it and he will ask me to sing to him and of course I do. Well after about 3 or so times singing I plop him on the changing table to dry him off and dress him.
While dressing him the other night I kept asking him if he was a baby?
Jax: "No, I not"
Jax: "Because I Me, Jax!"
Well that really put me in my place...Even though I really want him to be sweet baby Jax and cuddle and let me hold him to my hearts' desire, I realized that he is growing up and becoming himself. I can't keep the "baby" because he is growing up so fast. I know this looking at Ross everyday because he is also becoming who he is as well.
I need to remember to value and nurture who they are becoming and let them become who they are meant to be, not what or who I want them to be. They are blossoming before our eyes!!
