Say something!

So Jack discovered the fun of having someone tap on your back while your talking to make your voice warble. He was doing it with Eric and turned to me to do it. But he wasn't making any noises. So...

Mommy : "Jack, say something."

Jack : "Something."

I've got a stinking comedian on my hands.

I wear my sunglasses at night

I finally found a pair of sunglasses to fit Jack that don't have silly cartoon characters or animals or something else dopey on them! And, just like I knew he would, he loves them! He loves that he has his own pair of sunglasses to put on when Mommy and Daddy put theirs on. Thing is, the day I gave them to him he didn't want to take them off. Nevermind that we were inside and it was fast turning into evening!

Easter = lollipops

That's right. He didn't care about the Cars toys, he didn't care about the shirts, he didn't care about the coloring book. He wanted the lollipops. Oh, and don't let me forget the jelly beans. He's had one or two lollipops before (for haircuts) but this was his introduction to jelly beans and my goodness. It's a wonder I didn't have to peel him off the ceiling.... all before 7:00am.

The Easter Bunny

I took Jack to the mall, fully expecting him to have no interest it meeting the Easter Bunny, let alone having his picture taken. So we get to the mall and he's pushing his stroller around (forget about sitting in it anymore) and we pass where the Easter Bunny is so I pick him up to see over the other people. He was mesmerized! But I still didn't think he'd be interested so I told him that we could keep walking now. That's when he proclaims "NO! No Walk, See Easter Bunny!" So I said OK but we'll have to wait in line and you'll have to wait your turn. He said ok! I still didn't know how this was going to go because my kid has no patience. I can't remember a single thing that he's ever waited patiently for. But we get in line and he's a perfect angel. He stands still, moves up a little when I tell him, goes to smell the flowers in the display. At some point a lady gets in line behind us (she worked there) and tells us that we are the last people in line because the Bunny needs to take a break. Poor Bunny had been sitting up there since 10:00 am and it was now almost 4:30! So it's finally our turn and Jack runs up to the Bunny, runs back to me, smiles at the Bunny, waves at the Bunny. I had to finally tell him that if he wanted to sit with the Bunny he had to hurry up because the Bunny wanted to go on a break! So he finally walks up the the Bunny and gets up on his lap, decided he didn't want to be on his lap so slid down onto the bench next to the bunny and we got the funniest picture. Funny to me anyway because as excited as he was to meet the Bunny he is dead serious in the picture!

More Easter pictures

Just because it's who I am, I must do my best to get my child to pose for pictures. Whether he's interested in participating or not.

Jack, where's the baby?

Jack actually seemed to pick up pretty quickly that mommy had a baby growing in her tummy. Maybe it's because I started showing so darn early! He'll give mommy's belly kisses and will show people where the baby is if you ask. Now, the trick will be to keep him so excited after his/her arrival!
