Snackin' and a swingin'

Two weeks ago, I did something that might qualify me as crazy ... I just felt like we weren't busy enough (between my working part-time, physical therapy, developmental therapy, Mom and Baby Yoga, and music class) so I decided that Jack and I needed to join The Little Gym too! (For those of you who aren't familiar with The Little Gym, it's a lot like Gymboree class for little ones.) So, we've been in full swing these past couple of weeks going from one class to another, from one therapy to another. It's amazing how tough Jack is and how, despite being the busiest kid on the block (which I know exhausts him because I'm exhausted too), he always manages to keep on smiling:

And, during all our (uh-hum) spare time between classes and therapy, we have been working a lot on self-feeding:

All Jack seems to want to feed himself thus far is Veggie Sticks (who'da thought?!?! But, it's a great finger food!)

(This picture just makes me giggle ... that's a spinach veggie stick)

Veggie sticks are good, but nothing is as tasty as a ... GREAT BIG TOE SANDWICH!!!

We've also managed (with the weather being so fantastic ... love!) to get outside a little and enjoy our front yard swing:

Smiling even with the sun right in his face

You have my heart, little one ... forever

I think he saw the neighbor's dog here (who looks eerily just like our dog =)

So, needless to say, we've been busy, but it'll all in good measure and for worthy reasons. And, when the going gets tough and I feel like there just isn't enough time in the day to get it all done or it's one of those days during which I feel like a robot-controlled ping pong ball boucing from appointment to appointment, it just takes one look into Jack's sweet little smiling face to wipe it all away. Swish ...
"No more worries, no more fears, no more rushing around, Mommy ... for now, just live in this very moment with me."

(Done, done, done, and done.)


  1. You are such a great Mom!! Love reading about Jack's adventures! Such a cutie :)

  2. Too precious! Love the feet in the mouth! That is what always make me think "baby".

  3. Such a love muffin! And such a BIG boy! I am so proud of you, Jackers!
