Housebound

So since I have been housebound for the last 2 weeks, Jackson and I have had to be creative. We tried coloring more (he still eats the crayons which is just annoying), finger painting (which actually was really fun but very messy), and I am trying to teach him how to play ping pong. Every day my husband and his brother play ping pong before dinner. They have this little brother bonding time and they are constantly beating each other. Jackson loves to watch but lately he wants to be very involved by throwing the ping pong ball across the table or picking up his own paddle and getting in the way of daddy. So I decided to play with him myself and see what he has got. He is not too great but with a little practice and some more hand-eye coordination he could become the next Forest Gump (in the ping pong sense). Here are some shots of him trying out his skills, he is only 17 months so forgive him for missing the ball most of the time, haha.

He actually hit it back in this picture. I was so proud. Check out that concentration.
