Christmas 2010

Jack had a great Christmas and says thanks to Santa and everyone who gave him all his cool gifts. The bigs hits so far are the kitchen, his music board, guitar/piano (keytair?) and his Mickey Mouse cash register. But he's actually been pretty good and moving around to everything a playing a little with each.

Santa Beard Project

Jack got to do a little Christmas project this morning. We helped him a little bit with the coloring and some of the cotton ball placements but he seemed to grasp the concept right away.

Just call him "Chip"

Jack+Bath+Slipping=Chipped Tooth. And now that we have a photo of it, we think he actually chipped both of his top front teeth. We think a little bit is missing from his right one too.

He needs more bears and his master plan will be complete.
Story time with Mommy...

What makes a first time Mommy get teary-eyed?

Seeing her baby boy in a toddler bed for the first time. He'll get rails tomorrow.

Yo Gabba Gabba Concert

Jack went to his first concert tonight, the Yo Gabba Gabba show in Frisco. He had a lot of fun and did really, really well considering he didn't take a nap today, went to a birthday party, then straight to the show, that ended around 6:30 when he's usually eating dinner. He didn't really dance around that much, but he did a little, he mainly just sat enthralled by what he was seeing. I think he was overwhelmed by all the people, lights and noise, plus he was tired as could be. He did start drumming wildly when they brought out an all drum band. At the end he almost cried as everyone sang goodbye to each of the Gabba Gang. It was terribly sad, but cute at the same time. He was so sad to see them go, but he got through it. Stiff upper lip and all.

Visiting Santa

I really thought this would be the year of the classic crying kid with Santa. But we dodged a bullet. He did really great in line (which was only about 5 minutes), where he said "Merry Christmas" and "Hi Santa" and watched all the other kids take their turns. He did good coming up to Santa and making small talk. But when he got on his knee and we backed out of the shot, he started to get whiny and reaching out for us. Luckily, he calmed down a bit and we managed to get this shot. He's not smiling, but he's also not bawling. So we'll take it. He told Santa thank you for the free coloring book and said goodbye.
