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!

All Dressed Up

Jack one day is going to look back and wonder why I put him in certain outfits. He inherited this hat from a cousin. I couldn't resist. He kinda looks like a limo driver : )

Bubble Machine

Jack is an amazing bubble maker and saliva creator. If you look closely at his bib, you can see how much spit he made. By the way, we just put that bib on about 12 minutes before snapping the picture.

Eat your vegetables

We finally pulled out the vegetables since Jack is putting things in his mouth now. If anything, the cotton vegetables can soak up all that slobber that he seems to create at a large rate now. Who would've thought a little guy to muster up so much.


I love my mushroom

Runaway carrot

Looking forward to eating the real thing one day!

A new found love

Jack has found a new love...his fingers. It is amazing how he can get those fingers in his mouth. Is he teething? I don't know. The thing I do know is he is a slobbering fool. We put on a bib, and the next minute it is soaking wet. Good thing I received many bibs at my baby shower. I had no idea that I could ever use 5-8 in one day. I figured one a day. Holy Cow was I wrong.


I had no idea that fingers could taste so good.

A Sunday Afternoon Walk

On Sunday, the family took a walk around the neighborhood because Ginger our dog, was in dire need of a one, plus we needed the exercise. Because it will get darker sooner with daylight savings when we get home from work, we had to get out. Jack seemed to enjoy the light breeze, and the scenery. Ryan read somewhere that your child needs a certain amount of words spoken to them in one day. So to meet the quota he figured this was a perfect opportunity for him to describe everything we encountered, especially every tree we passed by and the type of leaves that were on it. Jack was interested... at least that is what his daddy thought.

This was the beginning of our walk, and Ginger was camara shy.

Stopping for a photo op, Say Cheese, Jack!!

What kind of tree, did you say that was?
