Oh M'God!

Jack got his 7th tooth. Yeah for him but the big news is he climbed up an entire flight of stairs by himself! Chris and Jack were alone and Jack wanted to climb so Chris thought he could climb a stair or 2 if he tried (he has never done that before) and he went all the way to the top unassisted. Wow... tomorrow Everest!!!

Good Irish Boy

Jack loves meat and potatoes, what a good Irish boy! We have no end of trouble trying to get him to eat and the other night we fed him the equivalent of Shepards Pie (ground beef, mashed potatoes and peas) and he could not eat it fast enough. He even fed it to mu-mum.
Jack is also enjoying his new trike. He looks like he is going to be a hoodlum and wack people on the head.

Cottage Days

We enjoyed 6 days at Grandma Nancy's cottage in Georgian Bay. It was a good chance for Jack to see Grandma and a chance for all of us to have a break and a rest. Jack did super well on the drive up there. It is 5 hours straight and then a 15 minute boat ride and Jack was a champ. He slept for 1 hour and then we stopped for a half hour break and then he slept for another hour in the second half. He played with the Fisher Price bus and we red to him. Jack loved the boats and wore his life jacket like a champ. He enjoyed the boat ride and would point out any boats that went by during the week.

Uncle Tom and Aunt Kim (and her family) were there as well as uncle Brock. We were glad we got to see them all and that Jack got to see them all. He made strange a bit but then charmed them with his business and laughing. He is learning to walk and furniture surf and took quite a few tumbles. We really got into the swing of things as Dad gave baby a bath in the cooler using the garden hose.

We look forward to going back up for 2 weeks on the 24th of July.
