Dear Jack,

I'm writing your 10 month post a little late (yet again).  Just as I said in your 9 month post that you are finally getting over being sick, you are NOW truly finally getting over being sick.  You are currently on your fifth round of antibiotics and we just survived your first allergic reaction/hives scare.  You have been through the ringer, yet maintained your sweet, calm and happy disposition the entire time!  You have short little meltdowns that are just about always fixed with a song or appearance by Tucker.  Your dad and I know that you like to do things in your own time so we don't rush or pressure you.  Just yesterday on your first St. Patrick's Day you started feeding yourself out of the blue. 
 
No matter what kind of crap happens in our day (lately it's been work for both your dad and I) it all goes away as soon as we see you.  My favorite thing that you do right now is give us kisses on the mouth.  You will go from kissing your "friends" to biting them like a dog!  I keep telling you that I am the only girl you are allowed to kiss until you are 30!  
 
Love you so much baby boy!
 
Momma

And some outtakes...

  1. LOVE that Jack shakes his head no, so cute! Wyatt tends to just laugh at me when I say no, or when he's doing something he knows he's not supposed to. And don't worry...Wyatt is obssessed with Mickey Mouse!
