red fish, blue fish.”
” Say, say what does this say? Ask me tomorrow but not today”
“Now it is night. Night is not a time for play. It is a time for sleep. The dogs go to sleep. They will sleep all night.”
“And will you succeed? Yes, you will indeed! 98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed. Kid, you’ll move mountains.”
I could go on for hours. We have been reading to Jack for about 3 months now as part of his sleeping routine. And well, let’s just say, I quoted all the above from memory and have about another 100 quotes I could have entertained you all with. He likes his books. Most nights he is pretty squirmy, but seems to love the colors and rhymes. We just hope it is signaling that it is time for sleep.
We’ve had a fun week with Dan’s sister, Melanie, in town. It has been fun for me and Jack to go over during the day and play. And I think Jack had his happiest week on record. He was such a good, cute boy. I think he likes all the extra people to watch!
He has learned what the camera is, I think. And instantly starts smiling. It is pretty cute. He has started this new really wide grin and scrunched nose lately. He is very funny and cute.
I have loved watching Jack’s interaction with his cousin Tommy who is 5 months older. They have showed a great interest in each other. And we couldn’t resist taking pictures of them in their matching dino jammies. Doesn’t my baby look as big as his 11 month old cousin? Geez louise! Look how cute they are holding hands. And as you can also see Jack Jack is getting semi-professional at sitting up. I would never sit him down and just leave him there, but he has gone for 20 or more minutes with me by him without tipping over.
And the most shocking developments of the week…
…we are fast on our way to having a crawler! Jack started pushing himself up on his hands and knees this week. And today after church, he was rocking back and forth on his hands and knees! I can’t believe how strong he is.
Now we can’t wait for my parents to come and see the babe. He is completely different from the last time they saw him. Hooray for visitors!
