My good friend Becca watched my children for me some time last week so I could run some errands kid-free. Because she was 37 weeks pregnant, it was very obvious that a baby was on its way. Becca told me that she informed Jayce that she had a baby in her tummy. This prompted Jayce to try to lift her clothes up the entire visit to try to see the baby :)
Then, when I arrived, Jayce lifted MY shirt up and asked me if I had a baby in my tummy. Nope, sorry bud!
Fast forward to this morning.
I heard the news via text from Becca's husband that her new baby, Cassie, had arrived healthy and sound. I let Jayce know that after therapy at the hospital today, we'd be going to see Miss Becca and her new baby.
"Miss Becca has a baby in her tummy?"
"No, Jayce... her baby came out at the hospital. She can hold baby Cassie now. Her tummy is empty now."
"Oh... mommy, you have a baby in your tummy?"
"No, Jayce... I'm sad, though, I wish I did."
And he replied,
"Mommy... I be your baby."
You most certainly will :) Forever.
This picture was taken during one of the many times this past week that Jaina has convinced Jayce to play "baby and mommy". I think she just likes to boss him around!
