Snack Pack

I've taken Jack to the playground before, but he didn't seem to enjoy it. I finally figured out what the problem was. Jack and I were going during the day while Eric worked, so it was just the 2 of us. We went down slides, which he liked, but he wouldn't really try anything else. A couple of days ago, we decided to take Jack over to the park again (we have 3 practically in our backyard), hoping to get him really tired so he would sleep well. He had so much more fun this time with both of us there.
Excuse the dirty shirt. That's what happens when Jack feeds himself pudding.

Jack is growing up so fast. He tries to say lots of words, but I'm not sure how many are decipherable by people besides Eric and I. He says the usual (dad, hi, bye,wow) and has added um..., weeee!, mine, car, bite, dog, what's that, he says mama a little more often, and has tried to say Jack and Addie (Addie just kind of sounds like eye). He loves to head butt, to give kisses to Addie (at least I think they're kisses, sometimes it kind of just seems like he's spitting), and to give hugs. He has added a new dance move to his repertoire. Actually, I'm not sure if you can call it a dance move. Its basically lip syncing. Its pretty funny since he can't actually say any of the words that he's syncing to.

PS. I guess its obvious, we got a new camera! Thank you everyone for your suggestions. We decided to get a Canon Rebel XT. We love it. It doesn't have video capabilities, but we love the pictures it takes.

I'm so glad you got a camera again! He looks so grown up in those pictures...and like he's having the time of his life. I bet you appreciated not having to crawl through tunnels and stuff being pregnant!

Great pics! Whenever the time comes that we have kids, we're going to upgrade to a nicer camera too! I've heard really great things about the Rebel, and now I can see for myself that its awesome! I didn't know it was possible for Jack to look even more adorable, but he does :)

NICE pictures!! They are so sharp! Especially the last one - I can see all of the teeth in that "little" mouth!
I know it feels so good to be able to document your life again and Jack's growth - he is such an adorable little boy! We miss him - we miss you all!
ps - now we are ready for the Addie (baby bump) picture!

I agree with Tare, how does Jack get cuter?! He just does! He looks so much older since your last pictures. I love the Jack vocabulary too! Your new camera seems to take pretty awesome pictures! good pick!

Great Pictures! Jack sure is getting bigger. Love the happy faces! Did he get tired enough and sleep well?

Just wanted to say thanks for calling! It was fun to talk to you and hear little Jack words in the background :) We (us and Ry and Steph) appreciate your thoughts and concern :)

The Kanga Zoo was WAY fun! I went down a bunch of the slides, but I got pretty claustrophobic (sp?) in a few of the things, and I got REALLY tired after climbing up some of the big ones. So then I just followed Matt & the kids around and took pictures. We want to go back, but we might wait til after baby bwudwa's born :)
