The blog has been eerily quiet these past few weeks and I apologize for that! With the Christmas season upon us, I promise to be a bit more “present” (haha). The past month has held a lot for us – from Jack’s Dedication to Thanksgiving to down-and-out sickness, we’ve been busy!
The other aspect of our life that makes things insanely busy is him:
He is….mischievous. The word “no” is not in his vocabulary and when it is? This:
He gets into everything and I spend most of my days saying no, removing him, moving him, chasing him, and following closely behind to ensure that he doesn’t tackle Charlie, climb our entertainment center, climb into the bathtub or bang on the computer keyboard.
As Christmastime nears, I enjoy putting up decorations. Our family LOVES this time of year. We understood that this year would be different because there was no guarantee that anything would stay in its place. I captured his destruction in action this morning and thought I’d give you a visual:
Plastic Fisher Price Nativity set and plastic baby Jesus meet Jack. I had barely placed the figurines on the toy chest before Jack snatched the Baby Jesus and began banging him repeatedly on the toy chest over and over and over again. Mother Mary was then used to bang together with Baby Jesus for another interesting set of sounds. Again, rinse and repeat.
Jack then gave up on Baby Jesus and the whole set and left them alone for a bit while he moved onto his exersaucer. But something tells me they won’t be alone for long….
