my first turkey and Christmas decorating

I know that Thanksgiving isn't until next week but we've already celebrated!We celebrated yesterday because there is a conference at school over the Thanksgiving holiday. It was a great Saturday. I was up early to take the turkey out and get it ready to go in the oven. While I may not eat meat, I had fun cooking the big bird! I had Bryan take lots of pictures because this was my very first turkey cooking experience :o) While the turkey was in the oven we decorated our apartment for Christmas... Then we had a lovely afternoon with about 4o friends and colleagues enjoying the turkey and other great food! Happy holidays!!!
I'm giving the turkey a bath here to speed up the defrosting!

here's what I have been up to...

Hi everyone, Jack here! I just wanted to tell you what I have been up to this past week. I am loving my new hair cut and the cooler weather of Hong Kong. I also have been excited to play with some new toys that mom got out for me. Enjoy all the pictures.

I have been wearing bibs a lot lately so mom doesn't have to change my whole outfit when I puke, or drool...

I love when we go down to the Jaccuzzi. I really like being wrapped all up in the cozy towel to come home and take a shower to rinse off.

Here I am going to sleep with my dad. I was able to suck on my fist and put myself to sleep. No pacifier, it was a great night!

Yesterday I got to go watch dad coach a Basketball game. It was outside, so I got to enjoy the sunshine with mom. The team lost, but we had fun anyway!

Mom made this great hat for my friend Josiah. She is making me one too, but I had to try this one on for size. You can tell that I love it!

I still love to suck on dad's finger when I am upset, which is pretty often :o) He calms me right down.

This was me this morning, hanging out on the couch in my pjs...

Here I am in a new outfit. See how I can puke and smile at the same time, I am so talented!

first hair cut... 11 weeks old

Last week Bryan was gone on a school trip, with the camera. So Jack had his first week without any pictures taken of him :o). We have made up for it this weekend though... He is learning so many new things all the time. A big one is how to get his hands into his mouth... He love to suck! He still can't get it in every time, but he will lick anything that comes near his mouth, so cute. Also, we gave him his first hair cut on Sunday. It was getting long, and if he were a girl, would be great. Barretts and bows here we come, but being a boy, I decided to cut it off. Bryan was a great sport and actually did the cutting, although it broke his heart to cut all that beautiful hair off. Jack was a trooper and didn't cry until the very end. Here are some before, during and after shots, as well as a short video of the action. We now have a shorter haired, blond son! He looks so different, but just as cute! :o)

look at all we cut off!

this past week....

This has been a great week with Jack. He is starting to be awake more each day, and fairly happy when he is up. It's been so cute though becuase when he does get tired, he has started rubbing his eyes (actually he pokes himself in the eye because his aim is not that good yet :o) Its starting to be a bit cooler here, so he has gotten to wear some new outfits this week. I love that!

All dressed up to go out for a run...

Sleeping with his hands over his face, silly boy!

First bottle... Actually not quite the first, but the first we took a picture of...
