My favorite boy turns 10.

I always tell the kids I don't have favorites, but that's not true. In their own way they are a favorite. Jackson happens to be my favorite boy. I say it often and he rolls his eyes but I think he secretly loves it. 

 I have so many pictures of him that I adore so it's hard to choose. But this was when Olivia met him for the first time. I remember he was just a peanut, just a tiny little thing. 
 He was so excited to get his big boy bed. According to my scrapbook he kept thanking us for the new bed. He was two years old. 
 A lot of my memories are gone from Olivia and Jackson's childhood so far, but I do remember always getting him from 4K on Fridays (my day off) and going on lunch dates with just him. He loved it. 
 That was him on one of our lunch dates. It's one of my favorite pictures of him. He's just the sweetest, kindest little guy. 
 I have to include something with his beloved doggy. He STILL carries dog around to sleep overs, if you go into his room at night dog is always nearby. He has duck too, but doggy is special. It was the only thing he ever loved, no pacifier or blanket, just dog. 
Now he's growing up and next year he's going to be in fifth grade, then off to middle school. He's still just my little guy (literally), he's hilarious, he has a distinctive laugh, he has a questionable sense of style, all of his friends are girls, he loves tennis and Minecraft, he's the neatest/cleanest of my kids, he's the most sensitive, and by god that boy still believes in everything. 

He's my favorite boy in the whole world.

I just love Jackson, he seems like such a sweet, caring young man and you don't see that in many kids nowadays. And that's all because of you my dear. He's looking SO mature these days, it's crazy!

My Little Leo (grandson) is 10 and it at times seems like only yesterday he was a baby, the older we get the faster they grow
