February – April 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”

January 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.

Going down the slide with Ellie [VIDEO]

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]”

A weird hello from Jack [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]”

Breaking down with 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!

Becoming more interactive

Jack seems to be a bit slower than Ellie to pick up on speech, but then given how exceptionally she speaks, that’s perhaps not a wonder.

Nonetheless, Jack is very interactive. He jokes and plays and definitely understands what you’re saying.

This afternoon, just before we read a book, I thought we’d take a little picture together and Jack loved it, seeing himself on the screen and smiling at himself. Continue reading “Becoming more interactive”

Jack’s first vacation – New England 2016

This summer, we spent a couple of weeks visiting with family in New England. We spent about a week each in Bath, NH and Kingston, MA.

While there, Jack got to meet his second cousins, Addison, Mason and Emmerson as well as other family members.

While there, he perfected walking and finally got the tooth through that had been bugging him for weeks. Continue reading “Jack’s first vacation – New England 2016”

Jack and his (Ellie’s) love glasses

I don’t recall how Jack came to be wearing Ellie’s “love glasses” but all that matters is that they work for him. He looks insanely adorable, especially when he throws that beautiful smile into the mix. Love this guy so much.
