John Cummins IV ~ Jack: Jack-Jack, Jack Knife, Cadillac Jack, Super Jack

I will never forget the moment we found out that we were expecting Jack.  It was the feast of the Epiphany and the greatest gift two newlyweds could hope for.  My heart was instantly transformed to love like only a mother can and we went from being a couple to a family.  Even before I laid eyes on him and first held him in my arms on September 20, 2008, I was completely and totally, head-over-heels in love.  He has been my delight ever since.

Jack is constantly making me laugh and surprising me with the unbelievably hilarious things that come out of his mouth.  He is one incredibly articulate three year old which is no surprise considering the fact that his very first word was “turtle” clear as day at only 9 months old.  He loves to learn and is always tackling new things.  This kid is forever on the go and is the definition of extrovert, considering everyone he meets a friend and being happiest when surrounded by family, especially his best friend and cousin Norah (Mowah).  He is a joyful and affectionate big brother to “his Gabriel” and wants nothing more than to “be just like Daddy” or maybe a superhero when he gets big.  He loves the Lord and has the sweetest spirituality teaching me just what a childlike faith looks like.
