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”
One of Jack’s favourite books is “Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site“, so when he was offered the opportunity to reuse one of Ellie’s former Halloween costumes and be a construction worker, he jumped on the opportunity.
Despite saying that he was a “construction site” for Halloween, he looked adorable and we were blessed to live in an amazing neighbourhood for Halloween and the kids had an amazing time together. Continue reading “Halloween 2017”
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.

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]”
I love getting messages with videos of my kids while I’m at work.
I got this message a couple of weeks ago and it was a really sweet video of Jack saying hello to me but then he got this really weird scrunchy face right at the end… Continue reading “A weird hello from Jack [VIDEO]”
There are many ways in which Jack is different from Ellie. Several of the things he does don’t surprise us much because we’ve already seen them in Ellie, but there are some things which he does vastly differently from Ellie and thus, stand out.
One of these is Jack’s love of music. He loves to play the xylophone, loves to jam and bop along to music and also loves his drumset.
The other day, I put him up on my shoulders and started dancing to a song and he loved it!
