The perfect combo

Lightsaber and Monkey...What more do I need?

too cute for words


Jack has been teething what seems like months now, and just recently he cut one and now he is on the way to cutting a second bottom tooth. I am hoping this teething is causing us to have the sleepless nights, so that soon we will be able to get back on schedule and get some shut-eye again. He will put anything into his mouth, to relieve some pain that he is having. He loves sucking on things including the brush in the pictures below.

I think I can get this whole brush into my mouth

If you look closely, you will be able to see both of my teeth.

School pictures

This past Tuesday, was Jack's first picture day at stepping stones. We had a cute outfit picked out, but my photogenic little boy wasn't so smiley when he sat down on the chair to take his pictures. He didn't think the photographer with his little purple animal that giggled was all that funny. I think he smiled once, but when the photographer clicked to take the picture naturally Jack had his eyes closed and was looking down. Luckily, prior to going to school, I was able to shoot some candids at my parents house.

Jack with his hair slicked down!
Well almost all slicked down. He's sprouted some hair!

Lovin the comb

Mad that mommy took away his comb.

I want my comb back pleeease!

Foot Rest

Ginger our 15 year old dog has turned over a new leaf. She was so unsure of Jack when he was born. In fact, she wanted nothing to do with him. She would go into the other room when Jack would cry, and even sleep in the garage to avoid the noise. Lately she has been showing some interest, and sniffing him. Jack thinks that Ginger is the funniest thing and he giggles when she walks by. The other day, Ginger laid down right next to Jack while he was playing on the floor and she didn't mind that Jack used her as a foot rest.

Jack had a foot rest and Ginger was loving the foot massage.

Supervisor Jack

Yesterday, I had to take off part of the day because we were having an issue with a leak in a water pipe in our front yard that lead to the house. Thank goodness the fix was a lot easier than we anticipated.

After resting from his afternoon nap, Jack had to check out the situation in the front yard, and he made sure that his Lolo, Grandpa and Dad were doing the job right.

Taking time just to be cute for the camera.

It's a bug's life!

The other day when Jack woke up he had the funniest hair day ever. In fact he could've been a stand in for the movie, A Bug's Life! Doesn't he resemble Flik? What do you think?

Padawan (Jedi Pupil)

Jack is our little resident Padawan in the Shaw household. He is working up in the ranks to becoming a real Jedi one day.

Yes...Jack is holding the lightsaber upside down. Give the kid a break he is in training.

Don't make me use this on you!

How do I look?

Future Basketball Star

Check out Jack playing with his new basketball hoop he got for Christmas from Grandpa and Grandma Shaw. His Uncle Bryan Rooney who is the Cal Maritime Basketball coach can't wait till the year 2027, so that Jack can play hoops for him.

Working those legs

Jack is such the jumper. He loves his exersaucer. I am going to be sad when we will have to put it away. He still has a couple of more inches until he outgrows this toy. This kid can get this jumper going so fast, it cracks both Ryan and I up. We think that his jumping is helping his legs get bigger and stronger : )


I hope that this kid likes hats when he gets older right now he doesn't have a choice :0) I love making new ones for him, and finding ones that are too cool, and cute! Here are a couple of his newer ones.

This pattern was bought from one of my favorite knitting stores pick up sticks, and I got it knitted and felted, before the knitting convention. Jack was a hit with all the ladies there. He definitely made a good model.

I found this pattern on etsy, and tried my crocheting skills. Not too bad eh... It took me a couple of tries of crocheting, and ripping apart until I finally got it!

The side view. I love the buttons.

I found this hat on babysteals and figured I could try to replicate the pattern. I'm working on it.

Rolling all over the place!

Jack is our little roller. We moved our coffee table out of the way so that Jack could have full reign in the living room. We still have to put little pillow barriers up so that he doesn't bonk his head on anything. Ryan and I still have to babyproof the house. We can't leave him alone or this little guy will get into mischief. I know it.

I didn't do it!

My New Ride

It was just yesterday that I looked at cousin Katelyn's car that Jack is sitting on and thinking, it will be a while before he will ride that. Last week I go to my parents house for lunch and Jack is riding it. I couldn't believe that his feet could touch the ground. He is getting so big, so fast. Where did my little baby go?

I can honk the horn!


Look at me balance with one foot!

Mr. McCutie

Jack is getting ready for St.Patty's day! It's our little leprechaun!

What more do I need to say?

Time out

Time out for Jack Timothy already? My parents bought Jack a chair that is carved out as a hand while they were in the Philippines last month. Hopefully he will be a good little boy and Lolo and Lola won't have to use it that much when he gets older.

Don't mind the hair, I just woke up.
