Jack Victor Through The Years

Jack Victor was born late in the morning of January 14th, 2009 after a long and challenging labor and one of the most dramatic births I've ever witnessed. He was our first great grandchild.

At the age of one he could boast of many accomplishments. In one short year he had learned to sit up, crawl, stand, walk, and eat human food .... I mean big people food. He learned lots of other things too (like construction work) and this was all consistent with Mr. Right's dream prior to Jack's birth that someone in the family would have a baby and we would all call him Superbaby.

By two years old, Jack had a little brother who he loved, did repairs around the house, maybe practiced the boy scout oath, and became even cuter which didn't seem possible. He also carried on a conversation like an adult but no adult would ever get away with brushing him off because Jack questioned until he got the answers. His favorite word ... why.

In the past year he's tried out some fake tattoos that he was very proud of, gotten a new little sister he adores, hung out with his brother, learned to command a boat and play in the fall leaves and made a new friend at the Christmas house.

All in all he's had a busy little life and now he's three years old! I don't have a picture of him at 3 because he lives kind of far away but I do have this wonderful picture that his great Uncle Dan took just a couple of weeks ago. Isn't he adorable!

Happy Birthday, Jack!! We love you very, very much!


  1. OH man, he sure is amazing. It's hard to just put into words so that people understand just how smart he really it. You have to meet him to believe it! and I can't believe he's 3 already! Love all of the pictures of him and love the post! Happy Birthday, Jack, we love you so much!


Gentle, strong, kind or true, I'd love to hear what you have to say.
Short or long, it's up to you, your comments and thoughts really make my day!
