Me: "Jacob, I love you SO much."
Jacob: "Ahhhhh... That makes me explode into a confetti of hearts."
Sydney: "I LOVE pickles! Pickles good!!"
Sydney: "Mommy, where'd my daddy go?"
Sydney at dinner tonight (3/2/10): "Where'd my fork go?"
Jacob, while she was looking for her fork and she said 'no thanks' to more crab meat: "Sydney, you don't know what you're missing!"
Sydney's reply: "My fork! My fork is missing!"
Tonight after I gave Sydney her bath and was putting lotion on her, Jacob was looking at her and claimed he could see through her skin into her body. He was telling me where her heart was, that he could see the valves and veins, her bones, her bladder... When he was "looking" at her heart, he said he could also see Daddy in there.
When I was tucking Sydney into bed while Jacob finished up his bath, she asked for the umpteenth time where her daddy is. My explanation varies a little each time I explain it to her, just to avoid sounding like a broken record. Tonight, I explained to her that he is in her heart, and even though she can't see him, he is still with us.
Me to Sydney, continuing the conversation: "Maybe when you close your eyes and dream, he'll come into your dream and say hello and let you know how much he loves you."
She said, "THAT'S my daddy!!" and settled into bed, snuggling under her covers with a big smile on her face.
