Huv Oo

Tonight I found myself rocking Jackson to sleep. I had laid him down only a few minutes earlier and heard his little cry. I scooped Jackson up in my arms and we rocked and rocked. I rubbed his back and kept on rocking. He held my hand and played with my necklace while we continued to rock. His hands found their way into my hair and he ran his fingers through my hair. I rocked him for a long time and I didn't want to stop. I looked at his big eyes and told him how much I loved him. I thanked God for his life. And I told him again that I loved him. Over and over again. And in his sweet little voice behind his pacy, I heard, "Huv Oo". Over and over again.

I just love those moments that just melt your heart and make it all worthwhile. Those are the moments that I just want to freeze time. You are such a good mom, Sunny.

So sweet! At moments like that, I stop and think "I want to make this a memory" and try to imprint on my mind. Sweet boy!

What a sweet moment! Thank you for sharing that Sunny. Mattie is just now learning to talk so she hasn't told me she loves me yet but I can't wait to hear it. There are times now when I rock her for just a few minutes prior to putting her down for the night. Her face just looks like an angel and I pray and pray that God will always let me remember that moment.
