How Could I Forget?

Today we are especially praying for Andrew and Jamison, who at this moment, are in the hospital, and hoping to welcome little Isaac into their arms sometime soon. I was showing Nico the picture of Aunt Jamison in Isaac’s nursery, and this is the conversation that ensued:

N: Wow, she has a pretty big tummy!

M: Yes, well, that’s Baby Isaac in there.

N: And, Mommy: how does the baby come out?

M: (Thinking we have only a short while to get ourselves breakfast and in the car this morning, and there is NO WAY I want to start this conversation!) Well, I’ll tell you all about it sometime.

N: Maybe you should tell me now. Because….what if you forget??

    We are also excited over here…another (second) cousin! Yay!

    Susanna wanted to know, “…if he is really a boy, why is his room pink?” (Susanna is MY out-of-the-box thinker, you know)

    We can’t wait to hear the news of his birth!

    He’s a true son of his father – always, at a young age, wanting answers and wanting them now! We, too, are praying for Jamison, baby Isaac, and Andrew.

    Nevin was 5 (like Nicolas) when Charis was born, and he asked me if they would cut my arm off to get Charis out. This baby coming out of the tummy stuff can be confusing!

    Jennifer, I remember this story. You may find it sweet to hear that Nicolas has had a framed pic of Nevin prominently displayed his nightstand for some time now…he loves it!
