8 Months...and Videos

Happy 8 Month Birthday Jacob! I can't believe that it was 8 months ago today that you were making your stamp on this world and, together with God, showing all of us what it means to be strong in the Lord. God's strength is made perfect when we are weak. You are our miracle!

Here's some videos of Jacob...enjoy!

I have been placing him on his tummy ALL THE TIME to get him to push his chest up with his arms and he finally did it on his own. I know this is a skill that is supposed to be learned at an earlier stage, but Jacob rarely tolerated tummy time, until recently. These arm skills are what we need to get him to roll over, crawl, sit up, etc. So this is HUGE progress. And we were SUPER EXCITED...as you will see in the video. Now that he is bigger, it's getting harder for him to do these things (more weight to control), but we feel like once he "gets it" he will just take off from there. He's so close to rolling over and sitting, he just lacks the arm strength/control. We would love to see him do these things VERY SOON...

Jacob has finally discovered that he can reach for the faucet. He still can't catch the water though...Hee Hee.

We absolutely LOVE hearing Jacob laugh. We try anything and everything to hear it. Jeff is the best at getting laughs out of Jacob simply by moving toys and making silly noises. Here's a video of his precious laughter.

Thanks for checking in with us. May you have a blessed day!
