Valentines day for my babies.

Well, its Valentines day, again. It’s just a scam designed by the greeting card companies, you know.

Anyway, some people around here really like Valentines day, which means that I like Valentines day. A lot.

To celebrate, I got a sitter all by myself and we’re going out to dinner tomorrow night. Pretty much what you’d expect. So to really put things over the pink-and-flowery-and-chocolate-greeting-card-top, Jack and I made a little video to try and tell the Mommy how we feel.

Here goes.

The Fork.

Having mastered shoveling Ikea brand Swedish Meatballs into his mouth with his hands, yesterday Jack decided it was time to join polite society and master the fine art of using utensils. As you can plainly see, he is a complete master. Also, just after I turned off the camera, he picked up some chopsticks and caught a fly in mid air, Mr. Miyagi style.

Walking people, walking.

I don’t have any idea who signed the approval form for this, but apparently it happened. The boy is walking.

Well technically, it’s mostly behind the super-sweet alligator walker thingy in the video. Though, he has actually taken one or two free-standing steps, but I am unable to provide you with any video proof of that, yet.

On a related note, we don’t acknowledge when Jack falls down, unless it looks like he’s actually hurt himself. The result is that when he falls or bonks his head, which is pretty damn often,  he just dusts himself off and keeps on truckin’.

The New Rocking Horse

Wow. Jack got a real wooden horse for the holidays this year! It was a gift from Great Aunt Ellen and Great Uncle Will… although, I suspect Great Aunt Nancy may have participated.

But, no matter how it got here, its pretty damn cool and Jack likes it a lot.

Here’s proof:
