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 rocking Mama’s hat
Getting in some morning snuggles with Mama
Jack looking way too grown up, blowing bubbles on a cool winter day
Jack doing me a “favour” and washing my car

Jack didn’t escape getting a fashion consult
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”
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”
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”
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”
At church on Sundays we sit in beanbags. Jack decided he needed his own and he looked right at home in it. Continue reading “Chilling in a beanbag”
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 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!
Continue reading “Opening his birthday presents”
He looks so sweet and innocent most of the time, but after seeing this I’m not sure what will come of him in the future. He looks like he’s robbing a store or bank armed with a screwdriver, though it’s a bit hard to take him seriously with that cute grin. Continue reading “The thug life”
