Jack is Four

Jack turned four years old last weekend, and we celebrated with pizza, cake, ice cream, balloons, presents, and MONSTER JAM! We had a total blast, and as of yesterday, we’re still recovering.

My plan, (don’t laugh) is that now Jack is four, to start making him sit for practical homeschool lessons. We’ve been focusing on letters and numbers, what they are, where they go, and who they belong to for much of this past year. I’d like to advance into handwriting this year.

Jack draws, he draws cute little stick people, but that’s a relatively recent development.

I got him a new chapter book for his birthday, I read it to him, of course, and the lack of pictures tortures him but it impressed by the presence of so many letters.

Jack is still really into vehicles and play acting. He’s always acting out little scenes and monologues and telling us stories, and that’s how he processes new information and stores it in memory. He also likes to teach his little-stuffed animals their colors and numbers etc., and it’s adorable.

Anyway, here are some pictures of us from the last few weeks.

Miss Liz

Liz is one of my favorite people on the planet. We met at work, and I had only been at Target for a few months, and she and I got put on the inventory prep team together. I can recall the exact moment/conversation when I knew she was going to be my friend forever. It was a Nicolas Cage-related revelation; she’s into him, like in a serious Hollywood crush way and not like a funny/ironic meme way.

Anyway, Liz and I are always swapping stories of our struggles with our bodies and our self-esteem, and one thing that I wanted to do for her was a photo session at her favorite spot in Monterey Bay.

So that’s what we did!

Here are the photos from that session which was a lot of fun and I hope that this will be the first of many sessions for my dear friend and soul sister miss Liz.

Be Mine

Jack and I had fun with these Valentine’s day inspired photos. I got the tattoo idea from Pinterest, but for mine, I used a watercolor pencil (Crayola brand). Jack is a bit wiggly, and it didn’t turn out as neat as I would’ve liked, but it’s still a cute sentiment.
