He's struggling with the concept of pretend

Jack has been struggling a bit with the concept that his new kitchen is for pretending. He keeps trying to raid the refrigerator, even though he has some pretend food.

He's trying to cut real carrots with his fake utensils.Ah, forget it, let's just eat. (That's paint on his hands.)

Happy Birthday Jack!

In some ways, I think Jack is advanced for his age, but not really when it comes to table manners, there he's "Leo the Late Bloomer". Obviously, he enjoyed his cake and he seemed to enjoy the rest of his party with just as much gusto.
Here he is showing off his new "cooking" skills with a piece of string cheese in his new ladle. Notice the boots, they were a gift and he's crazy about them.
Daddy and Jack finished off the big birthday bash with a "campout" in the living room. I am so proud of my little man and his daddy, who loves to do fun things with Jack.

Wow, it's been awhile

Each week, I take Jack to a recreation center where he can play with balls, tents, tricycles and other kids.

Each week, he wants me to push him on the tricycles, and each week I try to explain to him to push one foot and then the other, yada yada yada.

This week it must have sunk in... I swelled with pride watching him ride. If only potty training would sink in too.
