So much are we loving life in Oregon that we haven’t stopped for an hour or more to be able to put up a few pictures. But with Marti away for the weekend and winter setting in, I’m taking the opportunity to catch up.
Here’s a variety of photos from April to June this year. Continue reading “April – June 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”
It turns out that Jack knows a lot more body parts than I thought.
Watch him adorably show me where his body parts are with fairly good accuracy. Continue reading “Jack’s body parts [VIDEO]”
I was giving Jack a bath the other night and we treated him to some bubbles in the tub.
After realising that he could scoop them up and transport them to other surfaces, my face became his new target. Continue reading “Jack playing with bubbles in the tub [VIDEO]”
When Jack’s laugh gets going, it’s hilarious to listen to. One of those contagious ones that you can’t get enough of. Continue reading “Jack’s giggly laugh”
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!

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 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]”
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”
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.
