It seems that Jack is now benefiting from this activity (or maybe not so much, depending on how you look at it). While I was packing today for my trip to Chicago, I hear Sophie downstairs chanting to Jack..."You're naked, you're naked, you're naked!". And this is what I found upon heading downstairs.
So he's not completely naked, but she sure put in a good effort considering how much he typically resists having his clothes changed. Fortunately for Sophie, Jack is still at the age where he pretty much will cooperate with anything she wants, so there's no telling what might come next. It's so fun to watch them interact!
Here's a picture from the other day when Sophie was sharing her dinner with Jack. Those of you who know Sophie well know that this is a BIG DEAL, since she normally is not easily convinced to give you a bite of her food, unless maybe it's a sprig of broccoli or crust from her PB&J sandwich. Jack was quite happy to be fed by her and even offered her some of his mashed up, partially chewed green beans. And she happily accepted the offer.

Easter weekend was very busy with a lot of fun activities. Jack's one year photo session with my good friend Crystal took place on Friday evening. To see a glimpse of the shoot, check out ccjamesphotography.blogspot.com and look for a recent post called 'blog stalker". We had a lot of fun reinacting Jack's 1st birthday with some messy cupcakes with blue frosting. Eric didn't think it was so "fun" when he saw how quickly the frosting went from cupcake to fingers to floor and all over the kids and floor. We had to act fast to contain the kids and ultimately stripped them down on the front lawn followed by a long bath.
Sunday was jam packed. It all began with Sophie searching high and low for her easter basket, eventually to be found in one of her favorite spots...the dryer. Sounds strange, but lately she really likes to help fold laundry (I'm certainly not complaining) so it was an obvious choice for the Easter Bunny. Later that morning, Eric and I had nursery duty with Sophie's class. Jack decided that his new class was not a whole lot of fun and screamed enough to get his teacher to walk him across the hall to us to join the rest of the family in the 3 year old room.
That afternoon we enjoyed a wonderful meal with our good friends The Kings, who also have a Sophie, aka "Baby Sophie". Later that day we all participated in a neighborhood Easter Egg hunt at The Seymours' and had a great time. We are so thankful to have so many wonderful friends in Atlanta since our family is all so far away!
