Carousel and Lizards

We met up with Nana and Papa K at the mall and let Jack ride the carousel for the first time. We were a little worried he might get freaked out by it and not want to do it. But, he loved it. So much that he almost got upset when we had to get off. From the second we got in line, he was signing and saying "please, please, please" pointing to it. He was giddy when I sat him down on the horse, bouncing up and down laughing out loud. Each time we'd go around, I'd get him to wave really wildly at Nana, Papa and Mama. He'd scream and laugh and wave each time. One in the win column.




He also went back to see more animals last Thursday. Here is encounter with a Blue-tongued Skink Lizard...

Haircut and Other Happenings

We broke down and took Jack to get his haircut. It went pretty badly again. But it's done. Here is a before and after comparison.

Sportin' the hat Poppa and Gramma gave him...
Playing with Michael. I was told that Michael would hand Jack a block, Jack would say "thank you" and add it to the structure they were building. I did not witness this, so you'll just have to take Heather's word for it.
Something else I didn't witness. Heather took him up to one of the shopping centers in the area because the Heard Museum has these events where they bring up some of their animals so that kids can meet them. Here's Jack checking out a Bearded Dragon and a Boa Constrictor...

Jack breaking into an old timey vault. He made off with $27.50.

One Man Band

The other morning, Jack and I started his first band. It was me and him switching between piano and drum. Later Heather joined the band and we add maracas. Then the next day Jack started working on his solo album...

Entering crazy toddler stage? Maybe. Lately, he wants to wear shorts with jeans over them. Today, two pairs of jeans over them.Rain delay. We took him out to get in his first game of tee-ball. It lasted about 45 seconds because, as you might be able to see, it starting pouring down rain. But look how happy he is.
