So, I took Jack back to the pumpkin patch because he was sick the first time. THIS is my happy baby! He loved it! He was laughing at the snorting pig in the petting zoo, crawling all over the pumpkins, eating the straw (of course), dancing to the music in the displays. I am so glad we went back!

More birthday photos than you ever...

...wanted to see can be found here:

Jack was pretty sick still on the day of the party, so he is looking VERY unhappy in most of those. (Wouldn't ya know it? All that work and planning and I end up with a sick baby! LOL)

We went to the zoo on his *real* birthday, and he is much happier in that set of photos. It was still a great party, but I wish that *I* had the chance to take more pictures. I was way too busy to stop and use the camera!

I have yet to have a free moment to caption them, you are on your own for now!

Obligatory baby with birthday cake shot. Jack says "hey ma! How can I eat with this thing on my head?"

We took Jack to the zoo for his birthday. He REALLY liked the new penguin exhibit!

Happy Birthday to you

My dearest Jack,
It's your birthday today! The big number one. I can hardly believe that one year ago we were sitting in the hospital (boy was I hungry!) eagerly awaiting your appearance.

I couldn't have known then just how much you would change me, and 365 days later I can say without a doubt that you are by far the most amazing thing I have ever made! (I still marvel at the fact that I actually grew you inside me all those months ago.)

I hope that every day of your life is filled with as much love and joy as it is right now.

All my love,

A little birthday party tease. My monkey cake. I think he is fabulous! We are exhausted, and I have to get the photos from other peoples cameras, since I didnt have a minute to use my own. But, I promise, a monkey party album is soon to come!

Jack enjoys a sit down among the pumpkins. He has been sick for a week, so smiles were non-existent. No problem though, that means another excuse for a second trip to the pumpkin patch!

Yea, we're just lounging around, eating Mum Mums. Jack says about 5 words right now, Mom, Dad, Bye Bye, Hi, and Mum Mum!!! We won't tell him that the grocer told mommy that we cannot buy anymore Mum Mums in STL because of some complicated grocery politics, and that the grocers in AZ told both Grandma and Auntie Kristen that they can't buy Mum Mums there either. How hard is it to say Quaker Rice Cakes anyway? :-)

Playing with an alphabet link-a-doo chain. I cleaned out the toy boxes yesterday, and almost packed these away, thinking Jack had outgrown them. I am glad I didn't!

I bought this really fun quilt yesterday at the flea market for $15!!!! And it is handmade. Woohooo. I think I am going to repair the places where the seams are coming apart and use it for Jack's bed when he moves to a big boy bed. I think the polka dot motif is awesome!

Jack is really starting to gain confidence about this standing up thing. (Note the Charlie Brown tongue!) Yesterday, I caught him climbing up on top of a toy, using it as a step stool to grab something off an end table. Worse yet, he was on top of the toy on his TIP TOES! I am in big trouble. LOL
