Well, we have a new word! WHEE! I wouldn't say it's the first word - hard to tell when they start understanding - but it's definitely the most repeated one so far even though it comes out as BWHEE. I can be a clumsy and wild stroller driver; so whenever I hit a bump or bang into something, I say "Whee" so he'll think it's fun. So he says it about every 30 seconds now.

Another Milestone

Another day and yet another milestone in Jack's life. We walked into his room the other day and he was standing in his crib! He pulled himself up for the first time!

Jack Kissing

I know we all think that Jack is a handsome boy. But I think even Jack thinks he is a handsome boy. He has always enjoyed looking at himself in the mirror, but the other day he decided that he needed to give himself a kiss. Watch for yourself.

I just thought this was funny. What an innocent little chub!

First Tooth

Believe it or not, there's finally a tooth there! YAY - Progress!
I love any outfit that has ears!

My son, the reader...

This was cute this first time, but probably won't be allowed too much more!

Since this is a new blog and our son is 7 1/2 months old, we figured it would be a good idea to share a picture of Jack from each month of his life.

Grandparents Day

I thought how cute it would be to do a handprint and footprint for the grandparents. Jack has some great ones - grandparents, not prints! I am the most un-Martha Stewart-like person, but here's our good old college try (totally gave up the idea of a footprint after finally getting two decent handprints)! I have great respect for you crafty people! My Leeann Chin fortune cookie said someone would be impressed by my artistic ability - HA. Matt said he was impressed! What a good husband!

Here is Jack looking devilish!
Here is Jack looking innocent!


Jack loves to play pat-a-cake! Here's a video of Jack having a good time with Mommy!

Sorry that the video is a little dark.

Welcome to Our Blog!

Hello everyone!

We have buckled under the peer pressure and entered the blogging world. It is probably for the same reason that most people have started one. We just thought it would be easier to share pictures and videos of our little Jack with our own blog.

Just an update on us - Matt is our part-time assistant pastor at our church and also works as a security supervisor along with now recently adding our caretaker position at a retirement building so that I can stay home with Jack. That actually might provide us with some interesting blogs, so stay tuned! I just stay home with Jack and play all day! HA So we both stay pretty busy. We are just trying to adjust to this new position and to the fact that we have to do it without Buddy. Boo hoo.

Jack just started crawling, so that's our biggest news! He recently went to his first Twins game and is now a fan. I'm just happy he now has some hair and that I finally found some shoes that so far have stayed on! Big accomplishment! It's funny the things that excite you once you have kids! Well stay tuned, and we would love to hear from you!
