I’m having so much fun watching my boys grow and learn new things! Watching them discover new things makes me stop and look at the world around me a little more. Things I’ve never thought about, always taken for granted are amazing things to the boys.
Jack has gotten so big so fast. I was putting him to bed in his toddler bed the other day and realized that I don’t have babies anymore, I have little men! It was a sad thought. I love that my babies are growing up, but I miss BABIES too. *sigh* (I’m crazy, I know!)
Jack is a very adventurous one-year-old - he’s not afraid of anything! I’ve seen him attempt amazing feats for how little he is; I’m pretty sure I have a future stunt-man or mountain climber on my hands. He climbs anything and everything and he’s not afraid to take a dive to the floor either!
Jack is a true-blue second born; he loves his older brother and is always looking for his acceptance and love. If Noah is in a bad mood and pushes Jack away, it crushes him. But he’s also learned the art of annoying Noah as well…he can snatch toys & blankies away with the best of them and seems to know when the “perfect” time to touch Noah is (I.E. when Noah is in a grumpy mood. I get to hear the “he’s breathing on me!” from Noah…fun, fun!)
Jack is a little slower learning things, but I’m pretty sure that’s just because he likes to do things his own way. He refuses to use sign language and a lot of the time refuses to listen to my warnings about danger or things he ought not to touch. Discipline doesn’t phase him either. It’s amazing…and exhausting!
He eats like a trooper too. You should see him pack the food away – I can’t figure out where he puts it! Jack’s waist is still small enough to fit into 6-9 month pants, but his legs are too long so I am constantly rolling the waistband of his 12m pants in hopes that they will stay up!
Jack will only say two words: “mama” and “uh-oh” everything else is still points, grunts and nods of the head. I’m pretty sure he’s happy with his caveman ways too. I doubt I’ll be hearing anything else from him for awhile. Oh well. It’s probably good in the long run – Noah can make enough noise for the both of them! LOL
One funny thing - Jack hates ice cream. Isn't that weird?
