This sweet, shy boy is coming out of his shell for the girls.
While at the park yesterday, Jackson was elated to find his favorite classmate, K, on the playground. I was surprised to see the family since neither of us live near this particular park. I chatted with her mom, who is one of those genuine women who put you at ease. There's never awkward small talk with her.
Jackson and K are the cutest things to watch. K was strutting around with Jack's Clifford while he chased her. He suddenly stopped, ran across the field, and came back with a flower for K. Jackson was upset when she had to leave. He sulked on the blanket with the babies. Then K approached Jack and handed him a flower she had picked.
Fastforward to this afternoon at a different park. Jackson, James, Amelia, and Maddie were hanging out on the blanket having a snack.
We had already been at the park for 45 minutes and I was beginning to clean up when a little girl and her father arrived. Jack isn't typically friendly with strangers, but he warmed up to her quickly. They played with his red ball and hid inside a tunnel.
I gave Jackson a two minute warning while I loaded the trio in the van. I hollered that it was time to go. Jack said, "Wait. I have to pick a flower for my pretty friend."
He handed it to her, watched her smile, then walked away.
Ladies, get ready for this stud to woo you.
