Then, after the game Jacob played around with Papa Bear on the court. :)
Jacob loved being outside on Uncle Josh and Aunt Jamie's porch swing... So sweet!
Here's the cousins enjoying some time on the swing!

The geese came so close that they were eating out of Gramma's hands.
I stole away from the family to see my good friend and her new baby. We spent nearly 3 hours just catching up and holding her wee-one. Precious!

Yep, you've got that right...stitches! Agh! We've had quite the week around here! We went to our two year check-up appointment on Thursday last week, and Jacob decided to fall and split his chin open while walking down the hall to see the doctor. So...not only did we have that check-up appointment, but we also got 7 stitches! Then, to top it off, Jacob got a stomach bug and we had bad diapers and fever all weekend. Talk about a double whammy! Hopefully Jacob is on the mend, but it just seems like he's been through the ringer lately.
This is what we've been doing alot of lately... Laying down everywhere...wherever we can find...
However, despite all that he's been going through this weekend...he's still in good enough spirits to smile for the camera. What a big boy!

In case you didn't know it already, Jacob is very muscial. He LOVES singing and listening to music. One thing I realized recently, is that all the songs that I sang to him as a baby while in the hospital and when we were home were ingrained in his little brain and heart. I realized this when I was giving Jacob a bath and started singing a song to him that he had heard all his life, but he had never sang along with me before. I stopped in the song, not purposefully, but he filled in the word for me. It was so sweet.
Here's us singing that song at breakfast the other day...
Here's another couple of songs we've been singing lately too...I think you'll recognize these!!!
Jacob also sings along in the car with some silly vegetables (some veggies named Bob and Larry), and he knows many of the words to the songs already. It makes me smile and almost tear up when I hear him in the car singing "God is so Good," because God is good. So. Good. I believe that deep down in his heart he KNOWS this, he may not remember all the poking and prodding that happened to him as a baby, but I choose to believe that it formed and shaped him in ways that are Good and True, and only from God. He and God have a special connection already!
Thanks for checking in with us today. I hope your day is filled with seeing God's goodness, even through the tough stuff. Because while the tough stuff may not be fun now, one day you will see God's hand in it, and you will sing "God is so Good" and KNOW that He is.
