Ever since Jason and I decided that I would stay home after we 1. Get pregnant and 2. Have a baby....I will stay home, that is all I can think about.
Denver is in such a fun stage right now. He LOVES to learn and sing, and play. He loves his mommy so much and it kills me that I am working during this time. I know that he is in the best hands he can be at Kami's house. (She's AMAZING and without her...I'd be lost) but I want to be home with him so bad. I want to teach him to count, and teach him his ABC's. Ahhh! It hurts.
Last night during the rain storms - and LOUD thunder, I heard him scrambling to get to our room. There was a squeal and a whimper in there too. He got to our room and to my side of the bed (at 4 AM) and said "Yay! Rain! Mama Rain!!!" He was so excited it was raining! I thought he was spooked of the lightning and the thunder...but he was so excited! IT made me laugh a little - even at 4 AM. Then he crawled into bed with us and snuggled up in my arms. Oh! He is just the sweetest little boy.
A couple of night ago, I put him to bed. HE seemed a little nervous about something and so I lay down with him. (He has been noticing the shadows on his wall) We usually make a friend of Mr. Shadow, but this time he was very anxious. While lying there, I told him that when I get nervous, or scared I talk to Jesus and He makes me feel safe, and happy. Denver nervously said: “yes" and cuddled up into my chest. (He would not let me get an inch away from him) I asked Denver if he wanted to talk to Jesus, and he did. We said a little prayer and Denver finally started to settle down a little....but still curled up with me.
After laying there for several minutes in silence, I heard the sweetest thing I think I could have heard. Denver quietly but surely said "Mama, Jesus makes me happy" - he started to say it over and over. So sweet, so innocent. It was great to know and hear that Denver is learning to rely on Jesus for strength and protection...
