Hi, everybody. Ever since my new friend Baby Jack was born last month, Mommy and Aunt Jess have been wanting to hang out all the time! I don't really mind of course, but they keep referring to these little get-togethers as "play dates". This really isn't an accurate description, since Jack almost always sleeps the whole time, while I play by myself! What kind of a date is that?
Finally, yesterday we had a breakthrough. Jack was still asleep when I woke up from my nap, but after a little longer, he woke up and we played! Well, we played as much as a one-month old and a year-and-a-half old can play together! Mommy and Aunt Jess had to keep a pretty close eye on me to make sure I didn't press on Jack's belly too hard or stick my finger in his eye. (Sometimes, even when I'm trying to be gentle, I just don't know my own strength!) But other than that, we had a great time together! Especially Mommy and Aunt Jess. You know, sometimes I think that these play dates aren't really about us kids at all...
Here's a picture of Jack and me hanging out:
Mom and Aunt Jessie conspired to get some pictures of Jack smiling--the first in existence! As you can see, they did have some success:
