Jack is 1 1/2! Wow. He's growing so fast and is learning new things every day. Like... how to make sure he'll do what HE wants to and not what YOU want him to do. Example: Jack had his 18 month appointment with the doctor on Monday and he refused to allow us to weigh him. Refused. He screamed, he kicked, he held on to me with a death grip. He absolutely, positively was NOT getting on that scale. No way. No how. So, who knows how much he weighs - he is, however 33 1/2 inches tall. Everything looked good as far as health and development go. We're to continue with his nebulizer breathing treatments for a couple more weeks to make sure we keep the allergy-related wheezing at bay. Other than that, everything's A-OK!
This morning, I was talking to Jason on the internet phone and Jack could hear Daddy talking through the speakers on our computer. When we were saying our goodbyes, Jack waved at the computer and Jason said "bye-bye Jack". And Jack said, for the very first time, "bye-bye". Jason heard him on the other end of the line and was so excited. It was pretty stinkin' special to have Jack say bye-bye to Daddy when they were on opposite sides of the planet!
This afternoon, Jack and I were eating a snack on the couch and having a deep conversation. Ya know, "Da da deeeee. Ba ba deeeee.", that kind of thing. Anyway, I asked Jack where his baby sister was and he proceeded to lift up his shirt and show me his tummy. Close Little Man, but not quite. Too cute!
And finally... Jason's coming home tomorrow!!! We can't wait to see him!
