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.

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.

Jack’s 1st birthday [VIDEO]

It has been a whole year now since Jack was born.

366 whole days.

I’m really finding it hard to fathom that. It came so much quicker than it did with Ellie because life has been so much busier with two than it was with one.

This evening, to celebrate his birthday, we went to Love Food Central in St Pete – one of our favourite local vegan places – to enjoy dinner with some family. The owners were even kind enough to give Jack a piece of peanut butter pie with a candle in it and he boshed the lot of it! Continue reading “Jack’s 1st birthday [VIDEO]”

Jack’s first Christmas

After 7.5 months, Jack finally got to enjoy his first Christmas. Being that he’s not even a year old yet, we intentionally kept it low-key for him, but he certainly enjoyed a few nice presents from close friends and family.

And of course, Ellie had a nice Christmas with Jack and helped him open his presents.

Starting to feel better

The whole family was sick for most of November as we passed a cold back and forth. We’re finally on the other side of it, but that’s meant scant photos and updates on the websites.

This photo of Jack is a couple of weeks old, but was taken just as he was starting to feel better. Continue reading “Starting to feel better”
