Fun with Jack Before Baby#2 Arrives

In these final weeks before Baby#2 makes an appearance, we have been trying to make sure we get some special time with Jack. Last week was his spring break from school and then this past weekend was Easter, so we have had our fill of activities. It still blows my mind that in a couple of weeks, there will be two little ones instead of just one in our home.

First up, we decided to take Jack to his first movie. We saw Paddington at the cheap theater. To be fair, we took him to the movies a few times when he was an infant, but this is the first time he had an awareness of the experience. He had a fun time, but had a million questions – especially regarding the projector, the seats and the cup holders.

In addition to the movies, we have been enjoying the spring weather and spending time at the playgrounds around town, as well as visits to the Creative Discovery Museum. "Digging dinosaurs" is one of Jack's favorite things to do.

For Easter weekend, we had a jam packed Saturday that involved the annual community Easter egg hunt on Signal Mountain...

a petting zoo at the SonRise tour at the Seventh Adventist University in Collegedale... 

and a birthday party at a Gymnastics Center of Chattanooga. Surprisingly Jack survived the entire day with just a 20 minute nap in the car. I guess all of the sugar kept him trucking all day.

To give Jack a framework of when the baby would arrive, we have been telling him that "after Easter" was the expected time. We talk about the baby a lot, and thankfully he hasn't been bothered by the fact that it is after Easter and our baby hasn't arrived yet. Soon enough... soon enough.

See Jack tell me about his dinner.

See Jack say the Pledge of Allegiance. 

See Jack practice his skateboarding skills.
