This is JJ's baby doll that he plays with at his grandparents house. He holds the baby, feeds it, gives her her pacifier, and as you can see in the picture, takes it for a swing. Soon Poppa's pool will be open and I am sure that he will take it for a swim too.
Actually, Jerret and JJ are going to take swimming lessons together at the YMCA in a couple of weeks. I really wanted to take JJ to one of those safety swimming courses that teaches babies as young as 6 months old to lay on their backs and float, but the hours are too crazy (in the middle of the day) and I am not allowed to get into swimming pools for the time being due to a medical condition. Anyway - they will be taking lessons at the Y down the street from our house and I will have to watch from the observation windows.
JJ is getting so smart. He knows that every night we sit and let him watch Thomas before bed, and Jerret and I usually sit in the same chairs. So when he sees us getting ready for bed and walking toward our chairs, he will run to one of them and sit in our place, saying "Mine!" He cracks up at himself and we will ask if we can please sit down and he spreads his body across the chair saying "Mine!" All the while, he doesn't really want our chairs, he just does it for the game of it.
