Loving on the Grandmothers

Our cuddle bug has returned! Jack hasn't been willing to be still long enough for displays of affection since he was a few months old. Now you can cuddle him for a few minutes at a time, and if he's in the mood, the kisses just keep on coming. Here he is sharing some special moments with Maemae and Lola.

Kiddo has a lot to say. He's making sentences now. An example of his most complex construction is probably 'I see a big truck!' The night-night ritual has become pretty cute, too. Instead of nursing, we say 'Night Night' to practically his entire lexicon and every person he knows. It's pretty endearing to see him bid all his stuffed animals good night and then give them kisses. Later, he drops off while whispering such things as 'Night Night Mo-Ka-Koo (motorcycle)'.

Jack's baptism was last Sunday, and we were fortunate to have a lot of family to share the moment. For those who are curious, there was no dunkin' of the punkin'. Water was dribbled upon his forehead.

The day before, Jack had learned the phrase 'Oh yeah, baby!' from Aunt Ann and Uncle Mike. He says this quite often now (most notably just before latching on to nurse), so we thought he might say this during the sacrament. Instead, he picked up on 'Amen' and said this about a dozen times throughout. This elicited quite a few giggles from us and the congregation. The Basham Chamblee cup of cuteness overfloweth, indeed.
