Well, he started out asking for a dog...then, a cat ("because cats don't yank on babies, mom")...and then, a fish...I decided we could handle that. So, after a traditional visit to the pet store after a nice dinner at Koki's, we came home with "Tiny". Jack spent lots of time picking him out...I tried to get him to choose a beautiful beta fish, with the long flowing blue tail and fins. But, no, he picked the smallest and least "flashy" fish at the store. We even found a space themed fish tank for Tiny. Jack is very responsible and takes good care of his new friend. Of course, he talks to him, too...on the way home I heard him say to Tiny, "We are going to your new home. I hope you like it there".
When he fed his new pet for the first time, the fish immediately swam up to eat the food...Jack was amazed..."I knew I picked a smart one, Mom!"...

I never thought 3:45 am would be a contender for my favorite part of the day.
Apparently, this morning, it's Molly's favorite. All the books say not to
stimulate baby when they wake for night feedings, keep the lights low, etc.
Not in our house...we are party animals!
How can I resist THIS smile?
(It also helps that I am on Spring Break...and don't have to work today!)
Big Brother showed true bravery this week...First, helping with a diaper change,
and his 5 year old well check with Dr. Akey.

Jack is becoming quite the artist these days. Here's a few highlights from our fridge gallery...
Rock 'em Sock'em Robots...

Need some help with interpreting this one?
