driving like a crazy!

My mom took this video last month on her phone. I somehow just got to see it last night and it cracks me up!

JACK THE DRIVER

last week of preschool

I can't hardly believe that it's the last week of school for Luke. He's come SOOO far. He writes his name, he knows his days of the week, he can count to 30, and so much more. It's been so good for him. I hope we can have lots of playdates with his new friends this summer.
my big kid!


Today was also my last day to work in his classroom too. Usually my Mom watches Jack while I work, or Maris (my sister-in-law) watches him while Mom or I work. Mom is on her way home from Germany and Grace got sick- so Jack got to come with me today. I brought in the stroller so he'd have somewhere to sit (aka- i'd have somewhere to trap him!!). He did sooo good.
watching the kids play


 I think it helped that he had 16 kids that were running around him to keep him entertained. There was lots of great "people-watching" for him. I did let him down to play with the other kids during free play. They were all gentle and so sweet with him.
taking over the carpet!

And at the end, he started to get tired. Hence this photo:



He crashed in the car before we even pulled away from the curb...

Mother's Day

I was doubly blessed this mother's day. Not only was it my birthday- but I am blessed to have two of the cutest, sweetest boys in the whole wide world. They challenge me every day to be a better person and momma (and my patience). They make my world go round.


9 month checkup!

I took Jack to the doctor friday for his 9 month checkup and BOY has that guy grown! He literally grew 3 inches since is 6 month checkup in Feb. 3 INCHES! And they also make you do a little checklist to see how they're developing and I could confidently mark yes on all of them.

9 months

Here's a list of a few things Jack does at 9 mo:
- crawls on all 4s like a crazy
- pulls himself up on everything
- can lower himself down from standing
- waves hi and bye
- will stand all alone for a few seconds
- can point to my nose if I ask him where it is
- ask him where the light is and he'll point up (seriously the cutest thing ever)
- will give you a kiss (especially if you're mah-mah)
- AND SO MUCH MORE...

crashed after shots. poor guy.

PS: We always talk about how he's waaay chubbier that Luke was at this age- but surprisingly he's not. Luke and Jack were exactly the same size at 9 months. Luke was 30 1/4 inches tall and weighed 20 lbs, 14 oz. Jack was 30 inches tall and weighs 20lbs, 12 oz. I think that Jack is just shorter legs, longer body and Luke has always had really looong legs.
