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.

Piloting a plane

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”

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.

Opening his birthday presents

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!
