Jack got is first “taste” of caffeine back in the NICU, which was used as a medication to help him remember to breath. When he was two and going through feeding therapy in Seattle, he lunged one morning to taste our coffee. It was like a drug relapse. Ever since then he is drawn to the hot drinks mommy and daddy order that also help them remember to breath.
JUMPING ON THE BED
Who lets there kids jump on the bed? We do. After graduating from his baby jumper when he was two, he soon realized our big king bed served as a perfect replacement. Jack is such a morning person for this reason – as soon as he wakes up, he starts his day off right with a good bounce bounce bounce. Maybe I should try that.

Since Jessi and I are often on our laptops, Jack has grown an interest in what we are doing. The clicking sounds that come with each tap of a key must be mesmerizing to him. It’s not always helpful when I’m trying to work a bit from home, so we recently busted out one of our old laptops where he can type to his heart’s content. It was like Christmas morning.

Want to see Jack squirm, squeal and act like he is stepping on nails? Put him in grass. Perhaps it’s a sensory thing, but you may as well ask him to walk over hot coals. We hope this is something he grows out of since we all like being outside.
