Worries and butterfly kisses
Jack has adjusted to the time change, and is sleeping and napping well. Hans puts him to bed between 8:30 and 9, and Jack sleeps until 6:30 or 7. Lately Jack's been requesting butterfly kisses before he goes to sleep, which is cute until he snatches off our glasses (the kid is fast). He likes these eyelash kisses on his nose, ears, mouth, forehead, and cheeks. Usually asks for some on his belly too, but those make him laugh too hard just before a nap or bed.
His verbal skills continue to amaze us. He has learned what it means to worry. Where did learn this? We were listening to "Good Day Sunshine" yesterday, and he said he was worried about "Here Comes the Sun," which is the next song on the CD. He didn't want to listen to it, so I put the player on repeat and we listened to GDS about 10 times in a row (I was hoping he'd be more of a George Harrison fan, oh well).
The weather has been mostly nice so we spend a lot of time outside in the yard or at the playground. Jack likes to water the beets and carrots we planted, and we enjoy watching them grow. Every day something new is leafing out or blooming, which is fun.
When we're inside, Jack is currently mad for play dough and floor puzzles, but anything train-related (or vaguely resembling trains) is a big hit.
