Just Because...

Just because it's been a little while since the last post, here are some (somewhat) recent pics of the growing boy...

Blocks

video

Jack has recently taken an interest in building with blocks. I think his favorite part is dumping them all out over the floor. Above is a video I took a few weeks ago before bedtime. It is rare footage of Jack building with blocks and not getting angry when they fall.

Today at lunch



Maybe it's not as endearing to anyone else, but I just loved seeing my little boy on his wagon eating his Dadda's favorite lunch: peanut butter and jelly with milk. (The sandwich soon after ended its life deeply embedded on the bottom of his shoe collecting leaves, dirt, and pine needles...not so endearing.)

Couldn't help myself

This afternoon she just looked too cute not to shoot!










Thank you, Great Grandma Miller for the outfit and Great Grandma Audrey for the handmade blanket!

1 month old

My pediatrician asked me recently if we only make BIG kids. I guess so! Emma went in for her one month appointment this past week and weighed in at 11 1/2 pounds (95%). I just hope she eventually becomes average. I can't imagine how big she would be in the 95th percentile at age 16! Anyway, here are some recent pics of our little Chunker.










Jack initiated the hand-hold in the pic below. He's a wonderful big brother to his little sis.
And for the fun of comparison, here are some similar poses from Jack around the same age.



Look at those rolls! Jealous?

Harvest Party

Jack the Carpenter joined his "play group" friends this past Friday at the Harvest Party our church hosted. He's a little taken back with all the weirdness surrounding him...but he sure liked the lollipop he got out of the deal!

p.s. If you're interested you should be able to click on the image to see a high-resolution picture. The costumes are worth a closer look.
