So... tired...

Last night was a rough one. The tooth that has been trying to come in for a couple weeks now has finally decided to make it's appearance. Jack has a tiny little bit of white that's poking it's way through his little gum and it's causing him quite a bit of pain (duh). We were up 4 times last night - very unusual for us. I wonder if all his teeth will be like this... My sweet little man - I hate to see him so uncomfortable. It breaks my mommy heart!

Take me out to the ball game!

Jack went to his first Rangers game yesterday. A good friend of mine, Jack's Auntie Jenny, works for the team and got us some great seats soooo... we packed up the little man and all his stuff and headed out. We got to see some good friends and get some sunshine. We were only able to stay for a little while (I had another engagement) and the Rangers lost but we still had fun!

On another note... We had a crazy day on Friday! Jason and I decided the time had come for us to finally pick out flooring for our house so we went on a trek to find the perfect laminate. Well, as I'm getting out of the car (in a completely empty parking lot) at a builder's surplus store, some big ol' truck rams my door. Yep, hit my open door on my PARKED car! He then proceeded to rev his engine like I was inconviencing him or something. Now we have to deal with insurance and investigation (cause of course he says it was my fault - wrong!) and all that junk! Oh well, at least I still have my leg intact. It could have been much worse. Oh yeah, Jack slept through the entire ordeal!

Dental hygiene is very important.

Jack doesn't yet have teeth. They're on their way but haven't made an appearance yet. Jack does, however, have a toothbrush. You see, our Little Man is very concerned with proper tooth and gum care - mostly gum care right now. He loves, LOVES to have his gums brushed every night. He actually enjoys chewing on the toothbrush more than anything. It's become part of our nightly bedtime routine. He could squeak away on his toothbrush forever!

How YOU doin'?

Is he not a ladies man or what? I have no idea where he gets this eyebrow trick from. Neither Jason or I can do it - sooo very suave! Man what a cute kid!

Sitting, sickness, and teething! Oh my!

This week has been an eventful one in the Maurice household. Little Jack has entered the world of sitters! He can't get there on his own but he sure can stay there. He's enjoying his new perspective on things - I guess life really is different when you can sit up. Imagine what life would be like if you were relegated to spending it on your tummy or back and the only way to be in an upright position was to rely on the use of a bouncy seat or bumbo. He's loving the new "trick" he can do!

Jack's also had his first real sickness this week. NO FUN. Especially since Mama and Daddy were battling the same bug, too. It's been an endless cycle of nose drops and bulb syringes, and kleenex and screaming. I swear, he thinks I'm trying to suck his brains out through his nose when I clear it out. If Jack would just learn how to blow when I give him a tissue we wouldn't have this problem. Anyway, we're all starting to feel a bit better and have gained some valuable experience. Hopefully we won't have to replay this week over and over during the course of this fall and winter.

Just when we thought we were turning the corner on Jack not feeling too well he woke from a nap yesterday crying (unusual from him since he usually wakes squealing with delight). He cried and cried and cried. Hungry? Nope. Dirty? Wet? Nope. Fever? Nope. "Hmmmm... Honey? I wonder if his mouth's hurting him?" Check! We gave Little Man a cold teething ring and some Orajel and he was a happy camper (til the teething ring got warm). Oh my, this parenting bit is HARD! ...but so incredibly worth it...

A new home...

After these many months of chronicling Jack's life on babysites, I've decided it's time to move along to the world of blogger. Frankly, I was running out of space on babysites and didn't want to have to start deleting content. After all, those entries are a virtual journal of our little one's existence and I couldn't bear to part with them. You will still be able to go back and look at the babysite account ( but I will no longer be posting there. We'll be here from now on!
