Last week Branden and I were discussing doing more organized things with Jack instead of just playing/tickling/slash/throwing him around we thought maybe he was in need of some activities. Boy were we wrong, but some entertainment did occur.
So in our discussion we determined to try finger painting. I grabbed some finger paints and bristol board from the local dollar star and on Friday we tried our new activity. Being parents with much foresight (ha!) we stripped him down to his diaper and let him have at it. All went quite well at first he was very entertained by the gooshiness and slidiness of the paint and since he was only in a diaper it didn't matter that when he got excited by this he was smacking his thighs in an uproarious manner. He got paint everywhere and we didn't care until his adorable old habit of sucking his thumb smacked us right in the face. He shoved that blue/white and green thumb right on in his mouth without either of us even noticing.
