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.
Jack is at the perfect age where he’s a lot of fun, likes to play and is exploring new things, while not being old enough to be grumpy for no good reason or demanding things.
It was a really fun, low-key Christmas. Continue reading “Jack’s second Christmas”
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]”
We recently were told about a cool park adjacent to Albert Whitted Airport, a small municipal airport on the water in downtown St Pete.
The park is airport-themed: the climbing equipment is aeroplane-shaped and the paths in the park are even laid out and striped like an airfield’s taxiways and runways.
Obviously, Ellie loved it, but Jack got a lot out of it too. He spent quite a bit of time piloting one of the planes. Continue reading “Piloting a plane”
This evening, Jack spontaneously started shaking his head at the dinner table, somewhat vigorously. Not sure what he was disapproving of, but he seemed to be enjoying being defiant! Continue reading “Jack shaking his head [VIDEO]”
Jack loves to roll around and play in his crib (cot) first thing in the morning so often we’ll play along with him. Recently, Mama decided to throw his blanket over his head which he found hilarious. Continue reading “Playing peekaboo under the sheets [VIDEO]”
Jack’s birthday was on a Thursday, so between busy work schedules, swimming lessons and such, there wasn’t really much time for a birthday on his birthday.
So, we celebrated 2 days later on the Saturday instead. He opened his presents and spent the afternoon playing with some friends at the park and the splash pad. He was born on Cinco de Mayo which effectively makes him Mexican, so we (the parents) celebrated by drinking margaritas with some friends after the kids went to sleep. Much deserved!

This is Jack and one of the toys that he likes to play with. And by “play with“, I mean “hold on to the bell with his teeth and crawl around while puddles of drool spill out of his mouth“. So much fun 🙄. Continue reading “Chewing on his rattle”
We do our best to entertain Jack while Ellie is busy playing given that he can’t do most of what she can. When we’re out on the deck, we tend to fill up an inflatable boat with warm water and give him some toys to play with, which he seems to love. Continue reading “Splashing in his boat”
This past weekend, we took Ellie and Jack to some parks and Jack’s favourite activity at the park is definitely using the swings. However he took up this unusual posture which reminded me of a flamingo. Continue reading “Jack the Flamingo”
