Jack is Twenty Months!

Well, Jack, I've always thought you were brilliant, but the doctor confirmed it this month. Apparently, most children learn their colors around 3 or 4. But you, my wonderful child, are learning colors like crazy. It's so cute to hear you say, "yellow", and you clearly love blue as you constantly point it out.

Speaking of color, you love to color. I have to be careful, less you color all over yourself or the walls or the table or books...

You're a feisty little thing. You completely know what's naughty and will often hide behind your hands when you know you're due a swat for disobeying. In fact, you've been known to swat your own bottom for walking off the driveway and into the road.

Proof of your little brother abilities to annoy...

My Niece is the Cutest!

Lucy strikes a pose.

I had an unexpected visit from my niece today... Oh, and her mom came along, too. Anyway, back to Lucy. She is so cute! A total flirt. Plus, she really loves her big cousin, even when he won't share his snacks and steals her toys. She just stares at him with her beautiful, big smile and big, blue eyes. I can't wait for another visit from this cutie-pie!

Jack took his first trip to the zoo today... His family might have been more excited than Jack. We kept pointing out all the different animals. And, while he did say "hi" as soon as he saw the elephant, he mostly kept pretty quiet.

Kylie dipped out early to attend a Mission Trip Reunion BBQ. Apparently, the zoo isn't quite the same when you're 18yo.

Jack really loved the aquarium. Unfortunately, he was so excited that he just ran around like a wild-man so quickly that Mama didn't get great pictures.

The playground was pretty cool.

Jack's next favorite part was the sprinklers at the playground. Can ya tell?

Overall, it was a great day at Point Defiance!
