You see, Jack has this thing for blonds. Yes, blonds.
This is my friend, Rachel. Jack lights up when Rachel is nearby. At first I wondered what it was? Maybe that she is so nice, fun, and loves on Jack? But then I thought, all of my friends are that way. They all love on him.
It really must be the blond hair.
I didn't know that kids could have preferences so young, but then a couple weeks ago, Jack met my friend, Katie. She has natural, very light, blond hair. Jack immediately lit up when he saw her. Gave her about ten kisses in a row. Jack has this quirk of giving kisses on the shoulder. He goes in for a hug and then quickly turns his head down and kisses your shoulder. It really is quite precious. Katie must have thought that Jack was sure a lovie-dovie boy.
Sometimes, yes... but it's probably just the hair.
Then I remembered this picture.
This is Jack meeting his Aunt Erin last March (age 10 months or 6 months adjusted). Look at his little smile... in heaven.
The love for blonds started real early.
