My father-in-law Jack came home from his 4 month hospital/rehab stay yesterday. And that meant that the moment we had been anticipating for 2 months and 1 day finally happened: Big Jack met Baby Jack.
As you can imagine, it was very exciting. And emotional.
I love the way they are looking at each other here. One wise old soul meeting another, I think. And the smiles on the faces of Jessica and Eryk as they watch the moment happen are pretty great.
Jack looked at him for a few moments and then said something along the lines of, “aren’t you a fine little fellow,” and then he just pulled him right up on his shoulder and little Jackie settled right into it.
It was one of those circle of life moments I won’t forget. And boy it sure is good to have Jack next door again.
