You are completely fascinated with wheels--doesn't matter what they're on, you latch on and will sit forever playing with them! You absolutely love your sister. Except when she gets in your way, then you scream and get mad at her :) But you always have a smile for her, especially when you wake up and she runs in to greet you. She can usually make you stop crying with a soothing voice or a silly dance. I think she thinks you're her very own baby! You LOVE to eat. Always have and I think always will! And you positively enjoy Veggie Tales!!! You get very excited when I turn the movie on in the van and you'll stay glued to that movie the whole time!
You have that ornery glint in your eye...yet you're very sweet and love to give kisses. You were surprisingly gently with your baby cousin Hudson when they came to visit. Right now you don't like milk, but you'll get used to it! Sometimes you don't like to go to bed...I think you'd rather just play until you drop. You don't like to cuddle, unless you're really tired.
Daddy & I are blessed to have such a special little boy and we're excited to see the boy and man you grow into! We pray that one day you come to know Jesus as your Savior.
We love you more than you know Bubba! :)
The first time Mama got to hold you
The first time Anna got to hold you!
Sister was always so gentle and loving with you. She LOVED to cuddle and hold you!
(you're 3 weeks old in this picture)
Your first Christmas--so handsome! (4 months)
Anna had fun (and it seemed that you did too!) reading a book to you:)
Almost....at almost one, you started to walk behind this toy, but now you won't do it! :(
The BIG Party!!!!
We had your party in Mama's hometown at the park. You weren't feeling the best, but you had fun and all the family had fun celebrating with you!
Mama, Daddy, & Anna got you a Tonka truck and that's what I used to put your "dirt" cake in. You were more interested in the wheels (surprise!) than the cake. And even though you got covered in chocolate, you didn't eat hardly any of it!
Look at you! So cute and covered in chocolate!
I was NOT fast enough in getting that toy out of the box!! You got very excited when you saw the toys (all with wheels, of course!) and weren't really too interested in opening the next one...until you saw it had wheels too! :) (You did also get some books and you liked those just as much as the wheels!)
You got right on this John Deere and started going! You especially love to honk the "horn" and push the motor button. Anna really likes this toy too, and I have a feeling that is going to cause some fights when you realize that it's actually YOUR toy! ha
I can't wait to see what the next year brings--I have a feeling I'll be needing a lot more energy!! :) Love you love you Jacob!
