Jack, Jack, and more Jack

Sorry for the down-time between posts! It's been a busy week around here. :) My dad was home from Iraq for 2 weeks, so we were able to visit with him for a short time. Jack even got to spend the night at Abuelo and Kiki's house...I think he had a wonderful time! We will miss Abuelo very much while he's gone for the next 4 months. I'm sure it will fly by, though.

Jack has an ophthalmologist appointment tomorrow to check on his progress with the patch. He wore it for 4 weeks. I don't notice an improvement, but I am hoping that maybe there's improvement that I just can't see. We are seeing a different doctor...I was tired of the attitude I was getting from the first doctor. I think the new one will be much better with a toddler. I will udpate after his appointment!

Jack has stopped taking naps and that makes mommy very tired. He still spends time in his room during "nap" time, but it's just not the same. I wish he would go back to napping. Hopefully this is just a phase and he'll go back to being a good napper soon. Hopefully. (Just as I finished typing this, he fell asleep. Woohoo!)

The weather here warmed up for a couple of days and some of our snow melted/compacted. It's supposed to snow a little bit this week, but nothing big (I think). I am ready for some new snow...it starts to look very yucky after it melts and gets all dirty. The fresh snow is so pretty and fun.

Jack gets more active every day. One of his new favorite activities is running. Running from room to room. Hey...it wears him out!

Here is a video of Jack dancing. Sorry it's so dark!




Here are some random pictures taken over the last couple of weeks...

It's a plane!

Helping shovel snow...yes, that's his very own shovel!

Hey yay for Jack falling asleep! I just wanted to let you know Tyler did this - not napping thing - for about 2 weeks. Now he is back to his 2-3 hour naps. I think its just a phase and I hope the same happens for you!!
