Jack turned 17 months old on Monday. He's growing up so fast!! He is really starting to talk a lot now. He says a lot of words and repeats a lot of what we say! He's going through a fun phase where he hits and pulls hair when he doesn't get his way. We're working on righting that ship ASAP! He also has decided that about 50% of the time, he's going to completely revolt against diaper changes, so that has become a two-adult task a lot of the time. Other than those things, he is absolutely perfect. He is quite a charmer, always smiling and flirting with people in stores and restaurants. He loves to give hugs and kisses. He plays great with his friends, especially Addi, who we have been spending a lot of time with.
He loves day care these days and I have to fight him to put his coat on when it's time to leave. He does the same thing when we leave Grandma & Grandpa's house on Mondays and Fridays. It's a bit of a bruise to Mom's ego that he never wants to go home with me, BUT I am so grateful that he is in such good hands while we work!!
We celebrated our day off on MLK day with a trip to Creation Station at the Museum of Transportation. Melissa and Addi went with us, and we had a lot of fun! That place is great for kids their age - LOTS of fun stuff to play with.
We also got about 10" of snow Wednesday night/Thursday, which led to an unexpected day at home for Mommy. Here's a picture of Jack demonstrating how deep the snow was - where did his legs go??I had to put him in the snow for him to play in it - not sure what to think yet.
Today we finger painted with pudding - another fun idea from my friend Alison. Her daughter Giana is 2 days older than Jack so we like to compare ideas. Jack loved it and especially loved eating the "paint."Jack's friend Addi got a new computer for Christmas and he loves it so we used some Toys 'R Us rewards coupons and got him his own - hopefully he'll keep his little hands off our laptop now (not likely!!).
