July – September 2018

This year, I vowed to make plans for summer and make the most of it. Well, I pretty much failed at that and didn’t do nearly the things that I had hoped for, but we still got out and enjoyed ourselves.

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 giving out hugs and kisses [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]”
