18 mos pictures

We took Jack to JCPenney's last night to take a family photo for his 18 mos "milestone". Unfortunately I can't get the print to save to my computer, so I'll have to try to share the link. They turned out GREAT, even though he was being a little stinker. We're happy to share his smile.
Until next time...

Let's Count!

Jack's been doing so many new things recently and I wanted to share.  When we were visiting cousin Emery a few weeks ago, Jack really took to the magnadoodle, so when I saw one on our recent kid's consignment sale for $4, I couldn't pass it up.  His new love is "coloring" and this is a great way for him to color without all the mess.  I've also been writing things and having him guess what it is, or I'll draw pictures of animals and he makes the appropriate sound.  He's a sharp one.  Last night he started counting!  Ok, it's not like he said "1, 2, 3, 4, 5" but he knows the sequence of the numbers he said.  We were stacking some cups that we have (with numbers on them) and I said, "eight" and he goes "nine, ten!"  I looked at him in amazement and thought it was a fluke.  So, I tested it again and he said, "Nine, ten!"  I am amazed at his ability to absorb so much and now the regurgitation is coming at fast rates.  He also is able to recognize letters.  While we were watching our favorite programs on TV last night, the letter 'S' came on and he said "S!"  Then came "R", "M", and "D"!  Anyone that says TV can't be educational is NOT watching NickJr.!  :)
Here is an updated picture of our smiley little guy:

Another funny photo:  Jack is also really entertained by walking around in "big people" shoes.  He even tries to put on his daddy's flip flops, while he has socks on.  It's just the funniest thing. 
Thanks for visiting us.  Here's wishing you a happy holiday weekend.  Be safe and enjoy the last few days of summer! 
Until next time...
