Going to Be a Great Big Brother

The other night Jay went to the gym after we put Alex to bed. At about 9:oo, I made some popcorn and was getting ready to watch that day's episode of Days of Our Lives. I had to see if John would kill Colleen now that he knew she was his mother. Anyway, I digress. I heard Alex making noise so I went up to check him, and he was still awake. He stood up and hugged me and said, "I go lay on the sofa with Momma." How could I say NO? I am such a pushover!

Next thing I know he is sitting up watching Days with me, eating my popcorn and drinking my water. Out of nowhere, he leans over and says, "Momma, there a baby in your belly?" I said, "Yes." Then he starts tickling my belly and saying, "Tickle. Tickle." I couldn't help but laugh. And then I wanted to cry, because he rested his head on my belly and said, "I love you, baby."

How sweet! He is going to be an great big brother!

That is so adorable. Alexander is going to be a great big brother and a huge part of why is because of you and Jay. The two of you are such great parents that Alexander is secure in your love for him and so he has plenty of love to pass along to lil' brother or sister.

Love all four of you!! Mela
