Awhile ago, I bought a big pack of balloons to use to help Jack learn his colors. We have not blown one up for awhile so the other day I decided to break them open and do. Jack was terrified when I started blowing up the balloon (as you can see in the first picture). It was so funny and sad at the same time to see this sweet boy so scared. Now, when you mention blowing up balloons, he heads for the hills. He is happy with the final product however.
