a belated Birthday....

to Jack! He turned three on October 7th, while we were in Florida, and I still haven't posted pictures for him. I'm such a lazy blogger lately. Have patience. I'm at 10 weeks, almost got the first trimester behind me. I feel very gross tonight, the house is a wreck and I don't have the energy to do anything but post pictures. John is bringing me home a cranberry slushie from Sonic to make things right again.

So, here's to Jack, my baby-turned-preschooler. He is literally my sunshine every day. I love going into his room in the morning, even though it's 6am, because he is so infectiously happy every day. Jack is sweet and easy going and so loved by everyone. He is rather quiet and serious, but not solemn. He just kind of takes everything in and is a thinker like his dad. He loves books, loves to be read to, and when you read a new book to him, like when we read "Going on a Bear Hunt" tonight, he is just completely engrossed in the book and when it's over you can tell he's not satisfied...and sure enough, he demands, "Again, Momma!" He loves music. Right now his favorites are Raffi's Bananaphone and Handel's Hallelujah Chorus. Seriously. He listens to that over and over again all the time. Soon Jack will be a big brother, though he doesn't really know that yet.

Here's some favorite pics of Jack, and some of his birthday party in Florda...

He's a doll, Melanie...reminds me a lot of my Jack, who also weighed ten pounds at birth, and was also born at home. :) The picture of your dd holding him after he was born is just beautiful.
