This is a much needed post for a dear sweet boy.
He has been so sick. He is one that when he is sick he just retreats. He is not one to make a lot of fuss anyway. But this week, you hardly knew he was home. Even the past 2 days without a fever he still took 3 hour naps both days.
I have such tender feelings about this boy. He is such a good boy. He wants to do what is right. He cares about what is right.
I worry that sometimes he gets lost in all the attention paid to the other kids. Some of them just require a lot more attention. Either for age, or attitude.
So I wanted to write about him, the things that make him special. I wanted to document that I do care for this boy of mine.
I took this photo of him this week. When I saw him sitting with his hands folded and a grey sweatshirt on, I immediately thought of this photo taken of him in 2003-photo taken 2003
Then there is this bear...he got it when he was having testing done at LDS Primary childrens hospital when he was about 21 months. He took to this bear immediately.photo taken 2004
One day this week when I went to put Tucker down for a nap, Ted was just sitting on the bed, waiting for Jack.
One day this last week, Jack was sitting in the recliner thinking and he said, "I was thinking about a scripture Grandma was telling me about the Savior, do you think you could help me find it?"
Then one night he was in bed, I was rocking Tucker, and I heard him kind of moan, and say I have to get out of bed. I asked why and his reply "I need to go read my scriptures."- It was all very quick. He got up, read a verse, got back in bed, and went to sleep.
I learn so much from this boy. Just do what needs to be done. Don't make it harder than it needs to be.
I am so thankful for who he is. I am so very glad he is a part of this family.
