new year

this year began a little rough. jack had his first meeting with the stomach flu. we all lost about a week of time. on top of all the great things that go along with the flu, jack also got his first tooth. now that the tooth has broken through, he is much happier and back to his smiley self. jack is able to go from a sitting position to flopping down on his stomach. i think he will be crawling in the next few weeks.

rosey and jack have been playing a bit of tug-o-war with various dog toys. sometimes they swap toys while i am not looking.

jack is amazing. i love when he squints his eyes when he smiles at me. i just can't help but laugh!

Jack is continuing to an amzing show connection with his world. Grandma Robichaud bought him a 'fish bowl'(she knows Patrick loves marine life) with a clear from and a blue (aka 'water') background. There are 3 'loose' fish which rattle. When you drop the fish onto the fish bowl bottom , a bubble sound is made and then it plays a nautical tune. At first Jack would drop a fish and then put his whole head into the opening to see (also blocked most of the incoming light to see) & retrieve the fish, quite cute. However, later he learned he could just rock the bowl with his hand and it would play. After it would play he would do a sitting dance which looked like the groundhog's dance (no offense intended) in 'Caddyshack', a great fun moment for of us. He learned this all by himself and was quite pleased with himself. Usually you have to pay a cover charge for this kind of entertainment, but this is family and personally fufilling, love, Grandpa Robichaud
