when i was 5

since i was the 3rd child and there were no digital cameras in the 80's, this is the best picture i have on hand. lot's of people say jack looks like me as a baby/kid. i like to think so!

Jack Snack


Jack's curiosity seems only exceeded by his own introspection. The massive reorganization of his cerebrum is a fascinating process, one I can only dimly grasp from the outside. Still, I catch him staring off towards some unfocused point time to time, and I can only conclude there's a storm of contemplation going on indoors.

I'd like to think he understands a spoon goes in the mouth, but that would be cheating. He would have done the same with a dog toy.

my angel!

this week, we changed jack's infant seat for a car seat. he is much more comfortable, but it does make keeping him warm more challenging. jack weighs about 20 pounds (more than 3 times his birth weight). he loves to watch rosey play and he is eager to touch her. i like to tell him how lucky he is to have two dogs. All my life, i have had the privliedge of sharing my life with dogs. When i was born, my family had 2 yorkies named buffy & daisy. i have fond memories of daisy's smile and buffy's attachment to my mother. when i was 12 years old, maddie came to live with us. she was a very particular dog and i have great memories of her. one day soon, jack will be playing in the yard with his special dogs while building memories that he might one day write about.

jack is now eating squash, carrots, sweet potatoes and rice cereal. i think squash is his favorite. this weekend, i will attempt to make peas for him. patrick and i are looking forward to spending christmas week with him. we have lots planned!

still no teeth. still sleeps like an angel. loves to laugh & bounce

Jumping Jack Christmas

I apologize for both the coarse nature of the video as well as the Batman-esque angle. I wanted to capture a moment and only had our snapshot camera on hand. BUT STILL.

snow is coming

jack and gracie had their photos taken today. it went pretty well, but it is difficult to choose just one pose. however, i really didn't want to leave there $200 poorer either. gracie really loves jack and wanted to show him the christmas lights at the mall and santa. this will be a great holiday this year.
