Today on Your 3rd Birthday

Dear Jackson,

Today you turn 3!  How is that even possible?  Sometimes I have a hard time remembering life before you.  You have filled my heart with so much love and joy.  It is so true that you can't really understand a mother's love until you have one of your own.  Boy, can I tell you that a mother's love is something fierce!!!
Jackson, my love for you is unending!!!
I am so proud of the little boy you have become.  You are the sweetest!!!  I love how you have embraced becoming a big brother  You are always kissing on my bump and loving on Baby Bennett.  You talk about the things you will teach Bennett and all the things you will play together.  I have no doubt you will be the best big brother!!!

I am also proud of how much you have learned this year!!!  If we were to look back over the last year, your growth would amaze people.  You talk ALL the time now!!!  Your vocabulary is GYNORMOUS!!!  You talk in sentences and you are only 3!!!  I have told Daddy that I think you are going to be way smarter than us.  You soak up anything to do with letters and numbers.  You can count 1 to 10.  You love clocks, and constantly want to know the time.  You say, "What time is?"
You also love music!!! You are constantly wanting on our phones to listen to it.  You LOVE Jim Morrison and The Doors.  Not my favorite thing for you!!!  I leave that to you and Daddy.  You also LOVE Christmas songs!!! We listen to our Christmas CD at least once a day.
I have so many hopes and dreams for you.  I wish over the next year you continue to be your sweet self and be a super patient big brother.  I hope you continue to soak up everything around you and love going to school.  I hope your heart grows in your love for the Lord.  I haven't been the best at teaching you things about Jesus, but I hope to do better.  You love singing Bible songs and praying every night before bed.
I love you Jackson Scott!!!  What a blessing you are to so many but especially me.
