had a long but good monday

here is the latest and greatest of little jack...

he loves to speak spanish.  thank you dora the explorer and handy mandy.  he knows 1-10 and some other words.  he asks me to say them with him.

on saturday night i was putting him to sleep with my monotone voice as i read him a story and he looks over at me and says, "i want lips like yours.  they are big.  i have little lips. maybe if i was a mom, i'd have lips that match yours."

he has been painting a lot in school.  i'm so curious to see what talents he has been given in the creative side of him.  his dad is an artist coming from a long line of artists and i like art and also come from a long line of artists so i think jack is picking up on his sixth sense.  or maybe i'm just bias since i like anything he creates.

{"hey mom, i traced me and then stayed in the lines..."}

{jack drew this for me.  he said it's me but my body wouldn't fit in the paper}

dodging kisses is what he likes to do as of late.  if i'm lucky to get one, or maybe two at a time, he blows on my face to make that zerbert sound. 

he loves this application.  i found him singing church primary songs in it the other day! it was irreverent but kind of funny too.

we went on a date the other night to see shrek 4.  loved it!  we are big fans of shrek so it felt like closure from the other movies.  love our date nights - especially when they end with shared milk shakes.

in that phase where he wants to dress himself head to toe.  the other day we were going somewhere nice so i insisted on picking out his outfit.  he said he would let me if he could pick out mine.  he wanted me to wear a summer dress at a formal dinner. i'm okay if his fashion sense isn't totally jiving.
he has been skateboarding more and more as he is getting older.  i'll have to post some pictures soon.

we went to this place similar to build-a-bear but you build-a-car.  that was his heaven.  he was the happiest little boy in there.  he got to pick out the body, the wheels, the rims then use the screw drivers and make it come together.  he loves his car and calls it his monster truck... not sure why but maybe he is hinting he wants one?

we went to disneyland twice this weekend.  we got to see the new water lights show, he met 

lightning mcqueen and asked him to race cars with him, he rode my 

favorite ride (soaring california) now that he is tall enough, we went on buzz lightyear three times, autotopia three times, he rode matahorn and i covered his eyes on the scary parts, we got to see the haunted mansion all dolled up in nightmare before christmas - he might be jack skeleton for halloween.

notice picture of the left? i buzzed his hair without the guard, he moved... now a triangle is in his right side. he says he looks cool. i kind of agree... but let's wear a beanie k?

5 lovely notes:

Jack is darling and you are gorgeous! We plan on being at Disneyland the 26th and 27th of October-if you don't have plans you should come meet us one day and show us the ropes! I love seeing what's going on with you guys and looking at the inspiring photos you find!
