Lately, Jack is full of surprises. He in into EVERYTHING! All of the sudden, he acts more like a little monkey than my cute, little baby.
On Friday, Jack decided he wanted to play in mommy’s cereal bowl, which happened to be FULL of milk! I always eat my cereal downstairs in the playroom after his breakfast, so he can play and stretch out. I always set it down right beside the laptop on this little lap desk we have. So, Jack crawls over and grunts to me that he wants to stand up. So, I help him up, when with no warning, he lunges for my cereal bowl. There was no time! The next thing I see is milk pouring everywhere. It’s all over the couch, it’s all over the ottoman, and it’s all over the floor! It was running off the couch like a waterfall! Have mercy! I hear him squeal in delight as he sits in the floor and starts playing in the milk. Man, oh man!
So today, we’re all in the kitchen making our lunch. Jack is sitting in Sean’s lap, and I’m washing some dishes or something. Recently, I put my placemats out on the kitchen table. I don’t know why I haven’t done it sooner. They are really pretty. Anyways, Sean and I haven’t gotten use to the idea that Jack can pull off the placemat, and everything else on it will land in the floor. So, I look over and see Jack’s eyes light up and his little hand go for the placemat. I yell at Sean to watch out. Before he can react, his huge cup of ice water is all over the kitchen floor. HAHA! We all just burst out laughing. At this point, it’s just funny. Plus, I needed to mop anyways. Our little mischievous man! He is something else!
Lately, he loves to grab the waiter’s trays at the restaurant, too. He is all about messes, I’m tellin’ ya! I was holding him in my lap, and our server came by to ask us if we needed anything. I didn’t even think anything about Jack being close to her tray full of drinks and food. Then, the lady kind of half laughs and half asks for help when I notice Jack has both hands on her tray and is pulling with all of his might! (He is stronger than you would think!) Thankfully, I managed to pry his little fingers off her tray before she lost all of her next table’s food. *sigh*
He is also obsessed with cords. The laptop cord, the speaker cords… You name it, he wants it. He loves the bathroom and basically anywhere he shouldn’t be. It’s so funny because it just happened overnight. He is crazy! He is pulling up on things, he isn’t satisfied unless he is standing or you’re helping him walk. He is getting bumps and bruises all over his little head now. Today, he ran into the side table while diving for the laptop cord. Then, he was jumping in his pack ‘n play, and he slammed his little chin on the sidebar and hurt his mouth. The poor little guy is learning all sorts of things about being mobile now.
Anyways, those are a few stories from our house lately. Hope you enjoyed a good laugh! Now, I’ve got to rent a carpet cleaner for the TV room – ha!
