Captain Jack – 19 months

It would seem that the terrible twos have come early and a certain little Captain Jack has misplaced his halo.  So much so, that Nanny and Grandad recently saw it fit to buy Jack a trident.  Seems to suit him, worryingly, doesn’t it?

He has been testing the boundaries massively this month.  He can throw a tantrum worthy of a diva, does everything he is asked not to and pretty much rules the roost.

These days I have to have eyes in the back of my head, watching his every move.  If he isn’t climbing on top of the dining table, he is drawing on walls, flicking juice everywhere from his toddler cup or escaping from the garden.

Naughtiness aside, he has been extra loving this month.  He now comes to us for cuddles and kisses and has been bonding great with Hudson.  I recently caught him taking out both their dummies before planting a kiss on his little bro.


He will pass me things when asked, i.e. nappies from the cupboard and dummy for the baby which is not only helpful but shows a good level of understanding too.

Trevor has been teaching Jack to walk safely down the stairs whilst holding onto the banisters and you can see the pride in his little face when he gets to the bottom.  He always tries so hard to impress his Daddy.

He has been insisting on walking everywhere this month and no longer enjoys travelling in his stroller.  He looks so cute when walking down the street on his reigns and it really highlights now just how quickly he is growing up.

This month we have been spending plenty of time with Nanny who has been staying with us through the summer holidays.  He loves his Nanny loads and we don’t get a look in whilst she is here.

Jack recently took Nanny to soft play and horse racing plus they’ve been spending plenty of time in the garden and our local park too.



Jack had a surprise visit from Grandad also this month and we all enjoyed a visit to our local wildlife park, Beale Park.  Jack was mesmerised by all the sights on the train and was a lot more intrigued during this visit than the last.

Jack continues to love his dancing and now loves to wail sing along to music too.  His favourite songs are ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ by Justin Timberlake to which he breaks out all his moves or ‘Secret Love Song’ by Little Mix which he sings along to with all his might.  Click on the below photo to see him in action.


This month has certainly been a testing one but one of my favourites too.  Despite his mischievousness, Jack is always laughing and brings a smile to the face of anyone who sees him.  He is a little joy to be around and I look forward to seeing what month 20 has in store for our cheeky inquisitive little monkey 🙂

    He looks so cheeky and mischievous in that first picture. So cute! My youngest is 16 months and she is a terror! We are expecting another in October I honestly don’t know how I will cope.

    He’s so adorable, I know toddlers can be a hand full but when you see them being all lovey dove makes your heart melts. My heart melts when he both removed their dummies just for a cheeky kiss.

    Despite him being a monkey I think it is lovely that he has been showing you so much affection. Those 19 months have gone by fast huh?

    That first photo is absolutely amazing! Fits in perfectly with his current behaviour I would say.

      Oh yes, he works that trident well 🙂 I hope his misbehaviour doesn’t last long and it’s just down to attention seeking now there is a newborn in the house xx
