Jack's first Word...

...file. Get it?

He was typing up a story in Word tonight, and yes, there was one intelligible word: "pooop".

he's got a hostage!

And he won't give it back -- it has tasty, tasty applesauce residue!

latest stats

Jack weighs 17 lbs and 7 oz (90th percentile) and is 26 1/2 inches tall (90th percentile) with a giant noggin (97th percentile).

He dazzled the doctor (as usual), got three shots and has been giving us hell ever since. I have to admit, he still takes getting shots much better than I do. :P

who loves his daddy?

Jack's next checkup

We are going for the next checkup tomorrow morning. Stay tuned to find out exactly how huge this kid is. Our bet is a good 18 lbs, minimum. :)

Little Bear

It's one of his nicknames. Isn't this getup adorable? I love his serious face.

my little assistant

Sometimes Jack helps me get my editing done....

He knows what keyboards and mice are for!

I love the "Can I help you?" face at the end. :)

stay-at-home mom, huh?

Some people would hear that phrase and think that my job is taking care of Jack. So did I.... This last week, however, I have done 60 hours of editing!!!!! The company has a LOT to do coming out of the holiday vacation weeks. My, my.

Today is a break for me, thank goodness, and Jack and I are chilling out, doing nice things like sweeping floors and laying in bed telling each other "ooouuhhhoo" and "doooothhhhhhhh". :)

visit from Granny and Grandpa (Alex's parents)

Alex hid these pictures from me by accident, so I'm just getting them posted now. In no particular order:

Playing with Granny and Dad:

Helping Dad work:
Getting an AWESOME diaper change:
Making lunch:
Dinner at the Greek restaurant with Granny, Grandpa, Nonnie AND Grampy!!! (And wouldn't you know Jack was the only one who looked good in the photos!)
His usual face when he finds out you want to take pictures of him:

Planning a road trip to see Uncle Eric and Grandpa Jack:
Taking a break:
Trying to coax a smile out of the boy:
And we got this instead!
This is his "Daddy, are you going to save me?" face. :)

Grandpa is a great snuggle.

Jack's first word

I know this is literally unbelievable for most readers, but Jack said his first word on December 31st! He and his cousin Caiden were laying next to each other on a bed. Caiden started making "help, help, I lost my binkie" noises, and Jack rolled over to face him and see what was going on.

He spotted Caiden and said "haaaaa". I asked him, "Jack, are you trying to say hi?". To which he said (still to Caiden), "haaaa-eeee. Hiiiiii. Hiiiiiiii." and did a happy wiggle.

Of course, right after this, Caiden's mom and dad came in the room. I told them the story and they scoffed, UNTIL Jack proved it by saying hi to his Auntie Alison too! Then later, when we were with the rest of the family and I was regaling them all with the story, he said hi to Auntie Amy!! So we have two witnesses (sadly, Alex missed it) that this boy is getting the talking thing down. :)
