Happy Birthday Daddy

Today was a special day for both Ryan and Jack. It was Ryan's 34 th birthday, and Jack was able to spend the entire day with his daddy. He loved the one on one time with Ryan.


Hope your wish comes true!

I Love my Aunt Megan

Future University of Miami Fan!

This was the first time Jack got to meet his Aunt and they hit it off right away. It definitely was a fun time for both of them.

Packing for three?

I had to get a snapshot of Ryan carrying all the things we took with us when we went over to a friends for Monday Night Football. It is amazing how much a little guy can use. We pack just in case. Anyhow, apparently Ryan doesn't have enough hands because he is not carrying the diaper bag.

Jack likes to Party too!

Taking time to show that cheesy smile of his.

His reaction after telling him we were going to Mommy and Me class. Check out his new clothes. This kid has more than you know.

Jack and I went to your holiday party at our Mommy and Me class on Tuesday, and this is our completed art project. What a cute reindeer.

Look what Disney's doing for Jack

This little piggy

Jack's fascination with his feet cracks both Ryan & I up. This is Jack on the changing table after his bath. He has decided that sucking his toes is good!

Thunder thighs


Look what I can do!

Thank goodness for jumperoos!!!

Investing in another thing for Jack...Yikes. Luckily, a friend of mine from work who has a grandson, let me borrow her Baby Einstein Jumperoo. We are grateful for not having to fork out extra cash for something he will grow out of so quickly. He loves this thing. It lets him work on strengthening those chubby legs of his.

This is fun!

It's a bird, a's super Jack.

Many times, Jack's bib gets twisted around, it's then he is transformed into Super Jack.

Being "Super adorable" is hard work!


Ryan and I love to watch T.V. However, since Jack's birth the amount of hours watched has drastically reduced by 75%. It is certainly a treat to watch a show without any interruptions. When we get to watch and Jack is in the room with us, he will do his best to crane his neck towards the tube, in this case, upside down. Jack is definitely one of our own.

You get great perspective from this angle.


Sitting up

In the past two weeks, Jack's new trick while sitting in his bouncing boppy chair is leaning forward. He is working on sitting straight up, and eventually will get there. He is a bit wobbly, but practice makes perfect. In the meanwhile, he has found his feet and he loves holding them.

Hey, do those belong to me??

Asleep on the job

Caught on camera... Ryan asleep on the job but Jack doesn't seem to mind.

Jack's dedication

Last sunday, we dedicated Jack. It was such a wonderful day. It was a reminder to us how God granted and blessed us with a beautiful son, and how Ryan and I want to raise Jack to know God. There were many family and friends to witness this special occasion.

Bye bye baby bjorn!!

My back is much happier since I got my new carrier in the mail this week. Thank you olives and applesauce. Being a first time mommy there are so many things we registered for that didn't work for us and things that we loved. I liked the bjorn in the beginning when Jack was much lighter. It liked that he could face out and check out what was going on, and that it was easy to put on. Once he hit the 15lb range, I noticed it was a lot harder to carry the guy without my back hurting 30 minutes later. I did some investigation, and came up with his carrier. Not only is the carrier fashionable but so much more back friendly. Most of the weight is distributed on the hips, rather than my shoulders. The cool thing was I was able to pick out my fabric.

Our very own butterball

So...because it was thanksgiving, we decided to weigh our little butterball turkey, and he tipped our bathroom scale at 18.4lbs. : ) Our little guy is certainly healthy. He turns 4 months on Monday. I can't believe how time flies.

What time is dinner?

love those chubby cheeks

Flashback to the 80's

Check out Jack's new fashion statements!! I remember when leg warmers were "in" growing up. These little baby legs are so cute. It makes it easy for quick diaper changes and will definitely come in handy once the little guy starts crawling around the house.

A new obsession

Jack has finally figured out that he actually has hands. He has been batting at things for weeks, but last night while laying in his bassinet, he grabbed one of his hanging toys and stared intently at his hand. He also loves sucking his fingers, and at times his whole hand!


The aftermath...wet hands and face

three fingers

Beanie baby

I love my beanie baby. It's fun knitting something that is quick and easy. Here is Jack sporting all of his hats.

I'm so darn adorable!
