13 MONTHS. JACK IS OFFICIALLY A TODDLER. HE IS GROWING UP SO FAST. AND HE KEEPS GETTING CUTER AND CUTER! HIS VOCABULARY IS EXPANDING TOO. JACK SAYS “UH-OH” WHEN SOMETHING DROPS OR FALLS. “WAWA” FOR HIS WATER CUP. “ALL DONE” WHEN HE IS FINISHED EATING. HE OFTEN SINGS IT TOO. AAAAAAALLLLLL DONE!  “DA” FOR DOWN OR DOWNSTAIRS. “DA, DA, DA…” REPEATEDLY WHEN HE IS EXCITED. LIKE WHEN HE CRAWLS UP THE STAIRS. HE IS FASCINATED BY THE TOILET. LOVES WATCHING ANYTHING MUSICAL. LIKES TO SIT IN LAPS AND READ BOOKS AND TURN PAGES. HE LIKES EATING THEM TOO. HE LOVES KITCHEN UTENSILS AND LIKES TO SWEEP THE KITCHEN. HIS FAVORITE BREAKFAST IS SCRAMBLED EGGS AND FAVORITE DINNER IS RISOTTO. HE LIKES SHUTTING DOORS. OPENING CABINETS. PRESSING THE WRONG BUTTONS. GRABBING CORDS. HE LOVES BATHS AND SITTING IN HIS TOY CHEST. HE LIKES DRAGGING HIS BATH TOWEL OR A BLANKET OR DIRTY LAUNDRY AROUND THE HOUSE OVER HIS SHOULDER. HE WANTS MY COFFEE. HE WANTS MY PHONE. HE WANTS MY GLASSES. HE WANTS, WELL, EVERYTHING.

WE HAVE SEVERE CABIN FEVER. WITH TEMPERATURES BELOW 0 MOST OF THE MONTH, WE’VE BEEN CONFINED FOR DAYS, WEEKS AT A TIME. WE DO THE BEST WE CAN. BUT BOY OH BOY, I HAVE NEVER DREAMED OF SUMMER MORE THAN I DO NOW. SOON ENOUGH, I HOPE THE GROUNDHOG SEES HIS SHADOW. OR IS IT THE OTHER WAY AROUND? UNTIL THEN…WISH US LUCK IN THIS POLAR VORTEX WE ARE IN. OVER AND OUT. XOXO, ERIKA AND JACK

  2. Love his little wings. Love the sweater. Love his hips; the silhouette shot is perfect! And if the groundhog doesn’t see his shadow then hopefully we will be in the clear 🙂 Miss you!
