We live in such a cool place. The local government puts on a Big Truck Day every year, where kids get to tour and sit in all sorts of big trucks, like cranes, dump trucks, fire trucks, garbage trucks and 18-wheelers. Jack was in Heaven!

In August, Aunty Nicola and cousin Max were kind enough to visit us from England.
It really felt like a long trip, because we did so much every day that we really made the most of our time.
There was a jetboat ride on the Willamette, wine tasting, waterfalls, beaches, mountains, lakes, roses, playing around, snuggling, barbecues, stories and more. Continue reading “A visit from Aunty Nicola and Max”
As autumn gets into full swing, we still made sure to get out of the house, rain or shine. Continue reading “October – November 2017”
As was the case in January, it’s been a bit manic lately with our move to Portland, so we haven’t had much time to do updates on the website here.
But, rather than deprive you all of Jack’s cuteness, here’s another little compilation from the last couple of months. Continue reading “February – April 2017”
With our move to Portland coming up very quickly, we’ve had little time to update the site of late. So, rather than neglect to provide an update, I figured I’d do a quick compilation of the best pictures of Jack that we have from the past month.

This morning, while enjoying some fresh air at the park, Ellie and Jack had another moment of cuteness together. Ellie took Jack down the slide with her and they both came out with big smiles on their faces, cuddling each other. 😍 Continue reading “Going down the slide with Ellie [VIDEO]”
Jack is one insanely adorable child. He now understands when you ask for hugs and kisses and the way he comes up to you to give them out, including the way he tries to wrap his arms around you is enough to melt anyone’s heart. Continue reading “Jack giving out hugs and kisses [VIDEO]”
Unquestionably, my favourite trait about Jack is his desire for lots of snuggles and the big effort he puts in to them. He just mushes into your shoulder and snuggles right up to you, which feels so good for someone whose primary love language is Physical Touch. Continue reading “The snuggle king”
Ellie’s now big enough and Jack has enough stability that we feel comfortable letting her hold him. She actually prompted the request and she’s such a good big sister to Jack.

The whole family was sick for most of November as we passed a cold back and forth. We’re finally on the other side of it, but that’s meant scant photos and updates on the websites.
This photo of Jack is a couple of weeks old, but was taken just as he was starting to feel better. Continue reading “Starting to feel better”
