Dear Jack,

I can't believe you have only been in our lives for 5 months.  You are such a part of me now it feels like you've been with me forever.  Your personality is really starting to show.  You are playful, silly and very inquisitive.  You will talk and laugh with us, but most of the time you like to observe and take things in first.  You definitely like your routine and familiar faces.  Too many new things all at once upsets you, but you can be calmed down by your mom and dad.  Whenever you get really upset, singing seems to do the trick.  When you see me and smile, it melts my heart completely.  Love you little pumpkin!



  1. Jack is so cute! I'm loving this age with Wyatt, he's so giggly and happy! :)

  2. Oh goodness he is just too cute!! Enjoy this goes by so quickly!
