But that's the point, right? This baby is a mover!


Jacob is THREE!

I can't believe our little guy is three.


I got my last BabyCenter email today and it made me teary (I'm sure this has NOTHING to do with hormones). It does not seem that long ago that he was a little noodle, so tiny we were afraid we'd break him. Today he woke up to be three years old.
Last night we decorated his room with some birthday banners while he was sleeping, and made him pancakes in the shape of a smiley face for breakfast (I attempted a J for his name, but it all went backward). I had to work today so Grandma and Grandpa came over to play with him. He had a blast! Then tonight we all went to the Ice Creamery and ingested way too much dairy.

We had such a great time and Jake did NOT want to go to bed. He was too wound up from opening presents. He had wanted two things specifically for his birthday: Molly (the train) and "the jumpy thing that Makenna has" (a little trampoline). Gramps and Grams got him Molly and Hobbie and Bapu got him the trampoline. This kid was SO happy! He received so many nice phone calls, cards and emails and he loved every minute. Thank you, everyone, for helping make his day so special!

(Look at what a little peanut he was! The first picture is courtesy Uncle Chris - I love it! Look at those legs! - and the second was taken just after birth by Ben, when I hadn't seen him yet. Ben brought the camera over to me so I could get my first glimpses of our boy!
