I love walking into Jack's room after he wakes up. As soon as he hears the door open, he pulls the bumper down to check out who's coming in his room. Then I get the biggest smile ever. It melts my heart. And then my favorite part, I pick him up and he grabs either side of my face (and a ton of my hair) and pulls me in for the biggest, slobberyest openmouth kiss. He loves to give hugs and kisses. It makes us laugh so much when he does it.
I love when he puts his arms up for me to pick him up. He gets so excited. He makes this little happy grunt squeal. And then I usually get one of those big kisses too. Sometimes when he's playing on the floor, scoot-crawling all over, he comes over to me and wants to be picked up. He puts his arms out to the side like he's flying and smiles at me. Of course I have to pick him up for a squeeze. Who could resist that??
I love how determined he is to do things. He just started picking up pieces of food and putting them in his mouth. He will try over and over until he gets it into his mouth. We got blueberries in our farm box this week so I let Jack have fun with some halved ones. He loved them! And they made it in the mouth pretty quickly!
I love how he loves the water. Bath-time is so fun with him. He spins around the tub a million times chasing his toys and trying to get all the shampoo and soap bottles. He loves the pool too. He has started to really swim for toys in his waterbabies class. It's so funny to watch him kick his legs and splash around.
I love how curious he is. He wants to check every one of his toys out. And of course everything that's not his, like cords, magazines, shoes, and the fireplace. I'm pretty sure I am in for a wild ride when he starts to walk. Nothing will be safe! Remind me how I said I love this when I post that I'm ready to pull my hair out if he gets into one more thing...
I love how he loves his Daddy. When Bobby comes home from work, Jack gets the biggest smile on his face. He loves to play on the floor with his Dad, and crawl all over him.
I love how everyone just loves him. He gives the best smiles to everyone. He's pretty much the happiest baby I know. We are so lucky to have him. I love you baby Jack...
