I could have titled this post "March Madness" because it is a sweeping look at what Jack has been up to this month. I also could have written several quippy posts to go with each set of pictures and just pretended that I've been posting all along, and that you, Dear Readers, have just been remiss. However, if any of you are still following me, waiting for me to get off of my duff and actually write a post, you would recognize the lie. So here we are, Jack's month in pictures: His new trick is transitioning to sit. Use your imagination please, because he doesn't fully sit up without something for support At the cardiologist's office in early March The persistent cardiac defects are not slowing him down one bit It took a decree from God before the nurse would believe that I would NOT allow him to fly off the table...she finally left the room, but refused to close the door on us! Kneeling practice...wherein the skill is to stay upright while using his arms to play Which led, eventually, to pulling up... ...with a little stabilization thanks to The Dear Daddy... ...and he's standing tall to see his doggy Sopha-Loaf! Here he is showing off how well he sits up with the confidence prop of a sturdy box of filing-to-be-done but in actuality won't-happen-any-time-soon! He has to visit Princess too! Which all eventually led to this! I was sitting on the couch just wondering when he'd pull to stand on furniture, and up he went! Apparently, the Kleenex box is a powerful motivator! ...and Big Sis stood by on guard... Now for some leisure reading with Daddy And more standing skills. You know, just to prove it wasn't a fluke! I love this happy boy! He gets everywhere in the house now in lightning speed. He has a fondness for the vacuum cleaner Bad hair day Discovering his shadow... ...and trying to kiss it! The Girlie was highly amused with a story I told her about when she discovered her shadow. The Pod wanted to know about when he'd found his. Sadly, I had nothing. Finally I said, "Honey, when you were little like that, you didn't stop long enough to create a shadow! You were always on the move!" Happily, he was satisfied with this. I was a little sad. But, it is what it is, no? The boy LOVES his bath! And he adores Grandma Emmee... ...and the ball she brought him for St Patrick's day Let's help with the dishwasher... ...it makes a fabulous racket when you shake it! And there it is...his month in pictures. I love you baby!
