This week was also Valentine's Day. It was the first one that Kyle and I had together as husband and wife, so it was automatically special. We spent the day apart since he was working and I was home with Jack; but we managed to keep one another close with plenty of text messages and phone calls. The doorbell rang, and the FedEX man delivered some chocolates and roses. Kyle got home and we spent the time together and with Jack (since he is never far!) We talked over the beautiful dinner that Kyle prepared---yes people, he cooked dinner, and it really was awesome! While eating, I said "it's funny to think about 10 years from now on Valentine's Day and we will recall back to this very first one as husband and wife, with little Jack calmly observing us eat from his little lamb seat...I wonder how things will be then?". All in all, it was a great day spent appreciating one another, our family, and our love.
There are an infinite number of reasons why Jack is so incredible, but one of my personal favorites would be how powerful his little smiles are. No matter what bad news you just received, how much weight rests on your shoulders, how exhausted or stressed you may feel, you can forget all of these ailments within a flash simply by locking eyes with Jack and seeing a smile stretch out across his precious baby face. He's been smiling so much lately, I can't get enough of it. I can only hope that our little guy will keep on smiling throughout the rest of his long life.
