We are so thankful to have sweet J-man in our lives still! His mom has been ever so gracious to share him with us.
This past weekend we had the opportunity to have him for the day. Plan A was to take him to the park and enjoy a picnic lunch. Unfortunately a cold front came through and it was just too chilly to be outside. *cough* 50's *cough cough*. So Plan B- find something to do indoors for a very, very (did I mention VERY?) active 17 mo old. We finally settled on the Austin Children's Museum: the perfect place for a little guy to run wild!
And run wild he did! The boy was into everything not settling down for a second. We spent most of the time following after him making sure he was safe :) J was so busy I had a hard time taking pictures of him since he was constantly on the move!
Chickadee enjoyed the fun too safely tucked away in her moby-wrap. I thought she would catch a few zzz's all tucked in since she didn't have a very long morning nap, but she didn't want to miss out on a moment of the fun either!
After a short nap on the car ride home, both kids were ready to continue the fun once we got back to our place. I think Chickee liked have an "older brother" for the day. He is definitely a great source of entertainment!
Bart and J even got to enjoy a quick story together.
We know that Mom doesn't have to share him with us, but we are so, so thankful that she chooses to do so. Heck, we're a free babysitter! J really seems to be doing well. He is healthy and happy: what a blessing. We look forward to our next afternoon together!
I will say after chasing J around and taking care of Chickee, I am grateful that I just have one right now! Even with Bart's help, it's exhausting! We will be so happy to add to our little family in the future, but for today I'm enjoying 2-on-1 :) All you moms out there with multiple children, I will need to learn your secrets one day...
