Jack at 2 Months

Another month has flown by! Here are Jack's 2 month pictures, taken one day late (shhh, don't tell!). I just love the pudgy cheeks in that close up below. And if you're wondering what the significance of the Good Luck bear is, well, there is none. I just wanted to use something in the picture each month to show how he has grown (see the 1 month pics here), and I picked it at random. We're not even Irish!

Jack is holding his head up more, and looking around quite a bit. He still is a good sleeper, so I'm thankful for that. It's not unusual for him to take a 3-4 hour nap at mid-day, and then a few other cat naps here and there when he feels like it. If anyone reading this knows his namesake (my grandpa) you'll know he comes by his sleeping habits naturally ;o). Oh, and he sneezes just like grandpa did too... at least three times in a row, if not more. It really makes you wonder some times if there is any connection...

Henry is all about his "bee" (short for "baby", which is how we usually refer to Jack). As soon as Jack starts to cry a little, Henry is right there, "Mum! Bee! ... MUM! BEE!". A daily conversation around here goes something like this:

H: Brrrroooom?
Me: Yes, we can go for a ride.
H: Elk?
Me: Yep, we'll go to the park (there is a zoo there that you can drive around and see the elk from the outside).
H: Mum?
Me: Yes, Mum's coming.
H: Bee?
Me: Yep, baby too.
H: Heh (with a smile - his signal that all is well in his little world. :o) )

Speaking of Henry, he is 23 mos old now. His vocabularly is up to 35 words (the latest being "hay", which is what the horse in his book eats). We found some throw back tee's at Target last weekend for $3.99 each, so I had to pick up the Star Wars shirts. Hubby is a BIG fan of Star Wars (the last three movies, which technically were the first three movies, don't even get me started on that insanity). I'm kind of regretting that I didn't also buy the Incredible Hulk shirt, but there's always next time.

We're getting ready for Henry's 2nd birthday, trying to get things in order. It won't be anything huge because I figure he won't remember it at this age anyhow. Just the immediate family and godparents. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we can have it out on the screened porch (or what my inner Blanche refers to as the "lanai" ;) ) again. Henry is nutso about puppies, dogs, and all things that bark (yes, that includes seals) so we're doing a puppy theme for him. Hubby said he considered actually BUYING him a puppy for his birthday, but thought better of it. Apparently he valued his life to some degree. ;o) LOL! Don't get me wrong - I'd love to get a dog (a beagle or a hound to be specific), but I have enough on my plate at the moment!

Well, this is quite the post! I usually am not this long winded. Thanks for reading, and enjoy the day!
