Adventures in Jackland

Jack is always very concerned that Elmo gets something to eat... here he's fed his big Elmo a piece of soda bread.
Going the Meme and Grandpa Carl's. He loves visiting them, but most of all he loves Uncle Nate.

Here's an old picture of Jack in his Elmo sweater from Grandma and Grandpa Wheaton.

Birthday Pics

Here's some random pictures from Jack's Birthday celebration. He really was quite excited to have so many people joining in his celebration including his great grandparents. (I'm very blessed to have both sets of my grandparents still with me... and it is very special to see them enjoy their great-grandson.) Here he is with a shirt that Grandma and Grandpa Wheaton sent from Florida, he was quite smitten with the shirt... it was pretty cute.
Older cousin Chance (he turned 2 in October) and Jack enjoy some cake.

Look at that face.

Family shot at the Splash Village in Frankenmuth... we didn't get any pictures inside because water and our camera doesn't we settled for this picture. We took Jack there on his actual birthday to enjoy the inside water park, which feature a lot of entertainment. At first we was a little overwhelmed but he warmed up to it. I think he'll really enjoying going to the water park in Jackson, once the weather allows.

Watching the Squirrels

Today, Jack and I were watching squirrels out the windows.
Pretty soon he decided to line up his toys to take in the view.

Even his little firefighter.

And all his Elmos. I think they all enjoyed the show. No word from the squirrels about having an audience.
Actually, I probably should move the Elmos, my neighbor can be a little paranoid about people watching her and she may find all these guys a little disconcerting.

Jack coloring

Lately, Jack has really been into coloring. As someone who loves the Arts, it does my heart good.
He has also begun seeing things in his "drawings." Recently, he yelled out "airplane" and pointed to a shape that did indeed look like an airplane.
I decided I'd try to get a picture of him smiling. I said, "Look at mama," pointing to my mouth. "This is a smile." So then he kept putting his hands by his mouth to smile.

Here's a few cute pictures of him. A little boy is quickly emerging where a little baby use to be. I love to watch him grow, but everyday my heart breaks a little. I told someone the other day, "He melts my heart in ways I didn't even think possible." I'm sure he'll break that heart too in new and unexpected ways...I'm already learning a little about heartbreak as he becomes more independent everyday.
