Now, this could have gone terribly wrong. Jack is not known for grace and finesse. However, it was very much the opposite. He carefully held the ladybug in his hand and walked around. It was so sweet to see him so gentle and caring. He often is this way with Lucy, when he's not trying to ride her, and it is just one of the many facets of Jack that make him our special little guy. I knew right away that this event was blog-worthy and Amy watched the pancakes while I grabbed my ever-present iPhone and snapped away. The results are below and capture the true Jack - silly and sweet. My favorite part is when I asked him to hold his hand still so I could get a good picture of the ladybug in his hand. He literally held his hand with his other hand. This can be seen in the picture. It was great! Of course, the ladybug flew away eventually and this did not make for a happy Jack! But with a little consoling and dinner he was fine. I'm nearly positive that whenever we are in the backyard, Jack will now insist on finding and holding ladybugs! What a great kid!
All is well, and nature loving, in Drosche Land.
