Ginger has been through a lot the past 9 months. In fact, Ginger doesn't really shy away anymore. She checks out to see what Jack is up to quite often. She has decided she doesn't always need to move when Jack is coming her way.
Jack teething, and seeing if her dog tags really taste that good.
Jack has been quite mobile. If fact, he has been cruising for at the past month and believe me we have been chasing him around making sure he doesn't get into things. It is interesting how fearless this kid could be. If he falls down, he cries...but then he is back up again. One toy he loves is this 4 in one tykes toy. He will press the buttons to make it light up and play songs, spin the toys on it, but his favorite thing is to find a way to step on the chair and climb up.
Our annual garage sale in our neighborhood is always the first weekend of May, and this year, Ryan myself and Jack were able to cruise the streets to find that perfect deal. We should have opened shop but with a new kid on our hands, it made it a little more difficult to wake up so early in the morning. Our neighbors across the street have two kids, the youngest one 3 or 4 years old, so each year they have some really nice things up for sale. I happened to walk outside to get Jack's stroller out of the car, and lo and behold out of the corner of my eye is the exact radio flyer that we wanted to get Jack for his 1st birthday. These things are pretty pricey, at least this model runs 120 dollars. I happened to get this steal for 40 dollars! It happened to be in perfect condition. It definitely has been adopted to a good home. The moment Jack sat in it you could see the sparkle in his eye.
Our first official vacation as a family was spent at Lake Tahoe. Being our first trip with a child, we over packed. I guess live and learn. Hopefully the next time we get away we will know what to bring. We had a good time. We had both sets of grandparents there, so Jack had lots of quality time with each of them. Here are some pictures of the trip.
It actually snowed mid April. Jack saw his first snow, but we didn't capture any pictures with him in it. Bummer, I guess we will have to wait till next winter.
