The best of both worlds

What woman wouldn't want a future hunk that folds laundry too???

Looks like Jacob realizes this too...what a smartie!

Thankgiving this year could have looked very different for our family...God has been so good to us. And for that, we are thankful.
Jacob turned 10 months old, on Thanksgiving. We are thankful.
He laughed, cried some, said "la la", played, and hardly napped, all day. We are thankful.
We ate Turkey and all the trimmins with Jacob at the table entertaining his guests. We are thankful.
We are thankful for every moment, even the scary ones, because Jacob is here, in our lives. We get to watch him grow, change, move, breathe, and sleep. We are thankful for all the miracles that had to happen in order for him to be here, and never forget how blessed we get to be. We are thankful.

Wild Thing

The Wild thing has a cold this week...but he hasn't lost ANY of his personality. do I get from here to there???

Whoa....dude....what did you put in that formula mom????

Oh...did you say CHEESE...I can do that!

Thanks for checking in with us. Please pray for Jacob's cold; that it will be short lived and will not cause any infections or put us in the hospital. He's pretty congested and has been waking up alot coughing and sneezing and crying. So far, we haven't had to increase his oxygen very much; still hovering around 1/4 liter. His breathing still looks normal for him, but we're watching for any signs of increased breathing. We are hoping that this will only make him stronger, but we sure do want this cold to GO AWAY! :) Thanks again for the prayers and for the support. Jacob loves his fans!

Have a blessed day!

Happy 90th Birthday GG!

We went to Atlanta for the weekend for Jacob's Great Grandmother's 90th Birthday. It was a great weekend! What a party she had! Below are some pictures of the day, including the cake that Jeff's mom made for GG. It was amazing, and all edible. She taught herself how to make fondant icing and gumpaste flowers. Jacob played with family while GG opened her 90 gifts!

Thanks for checking in with us. Have a blessed day!

Jackson says, "Brothers don't shake hands...brothers gotta....LICK!!!!!!"

Jacob says, "Hey man, that's my face!"

Jackson says, "Yep, that's left over peaches alright."

Jackson says, "What's that smell?"

Jacob says, "Don't make fun of me. I've got you pinned."

Jackson says, "I give up. You win!"

Thanks for checking in with us. Have a blessed day!

Poor Baby!!!!

Poor Jacob...Nobody told him that he'd have to have so many shots in one day. Normally, at the 9 month check-up there aren't any shots....but not for Jacob. He got 4 shots all at once. He got a second round of the flu shot, the first of two rounds of the H1N1 shot, and two RSV shots (because his dose requires more than 1 mL, so they have to make it into two shots). He handled it pretty well, considering.

Here's his stats for his 9 month check up. He's up to 31 inches in height. That is well above the 95th percentile for length. He's weighing in at 23 lbs. 1 oz., which is about the 80th percentile for weight. As you can see from this picture in his car seat, Jacob is a GROWING boy. A while back we had to switch to a bigger convertible seat, because he'd outgrown the infant seat. Even when he's in his big boy seat, his legs still hit the back seat. And of course, his best friend is with him. We don't go anywhere without his frog "WubbaNub."

Who knew that he'd be so big and cute! We are having so much fun with him! Such a big boy in his Sunday outfit.

Here's one more of Jacob in his Halloween costume. He tolerated the hat much better on Halloween night. I think he realized that it was keeping him warm.
Thanks for checking in with us today. Have a wonderful week! I'm sure we will!
