last week was me & jack's half birthday! it's a totally weird reason to celebrate, i realize this, but it has become a fun tradition in our family so i figure we might as well keep it up. we got some party hats and blowouts and some yummy rice pudding [i didn't get my regular half-bday cupcake until saturday night, on my date with b] and had a great night.
i can't even believe how tiny he looks in last year's half birthday pictures -- jack is a grown up now! not to mention that apparently he thinks 18 months is the age to begin the terrible 2's. in just the past week, he's developed the most hideously grating whine-scream [used whenever he's mad about something, so pretty much = every 30 seconds], hates to share, and PUSHES other kids when they get in his way. what happened to my easygoing, friendly, happy baby?! ugh. this is one phase i can't wait to get over.
