Jack & Mike were on SKY Sports coverage of the Bourgoin v. Munster Heineken Cup game in Geneva that we went to watch in January 2007.
We managed to capture Jack's very first steps on film a few days before his 1st birthday. He was SO pleased with himself!
Jack commandeered this quad bike from a kid in Kannenfeldpark and managed to find the accelerator which was a surprise to all of us! Ronnie managed to get it on film whilst saving Cullen!
Jack running around after bathtime when Damian was visiting in April
Jack having a naked chat with Damian. Happily only Jack is naked.
We went with the Dilliers to check-out the new pie shop which opened in Basel in April (sadly disappointing). Jack had a fine old time leading Mike a merry dance outside though.
Jack's a wild man on the piano
He'll probably do better with a different teacher ;-)
Jack has always had plenty to say for himself; this is a nice example of 'Jack-a-nese'
Jack has always had a bit of a penchant for phones, but Daddy's shiny, new one (on which most of these clips were taken) is irresistible! He also loves sucking on his washcloth - nice!
Jack has a pretty sophisticated sense of humour: washcloth on the belly = funny!
Throwing the washcloth = funny!
Washcloth on the head = funny!
Our budding Mozart ;-)
Having a chat to Daddy's whilst drying off after bathtime & practicing some mountaineering skills
Just prior to this Jack made it up & down the slide all on his own for the first time. Mike thought he'd capture it, but it all went a bit pear-shaped :-) The quality's pretty poor as Mike's up in Jack's bedroom filming on his phone.
Jack making a little speech
One of Jack's first words was "Kaili". It still is, he asks for her all the time!
Jack showing great understanding of the word "no"
Jack learning some of the body parts
Jack LOVES his wellies. We went through a stage of several days in May where he wanted to wear them ALL the time!
Jack has a pretty important phone call to make
We went through a stage of Jack always wanting to wear his wellies & his raincoat
Kaili, Findlay, Jamie & Jack on the balcony at Findlay's 2nd birthday party.
Jack still clamping food in his fist & then having difficulty getting it into his mouth
Weeeeeee down the slide!
Jack says "Yeah"!
Cullen mobilized the immobilizer! This is quite simply one of the cutest things I've ever seen.
Jack finally figured out how to play the harmonica after months of trying. The difference between it & a kazoo was confusing for him. This is in Chamonix in August.
Mike & Jack met the Dilliers in Pfauen for a coffee; they have a great little play area
Jack enjoys shouting into the empty cement mixer in our garden, but what is that cheeky (evil?!) look all about?
Jack is ready for our weekend in Chamonix - looks like he wants to go hiking!
Jack had big fun cleaning the kitchen, he still insists on putting almost everything in his mouth though!
Jack likes to squeeze the sponge
Jack likes to sing whatever song this is - to me it sounds like the beginning of "Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend", but I'm not aware of a penchant for show tunes!
Jack likes to make a mess!

Jack had a fantastic time at the rugby club playing in the fallen autumn leaves
More leafy fun!
Yet more autumnal fun!
