First Tracks!

Jacob's 1st run

When Jacob got to the bottom he yelled, "AGAIN!"  :-)

New skis and boots!

Jacob went shopping for his first pair of skis and boots yesterday!  He's been skiing around the house, inside and out, using his snow boots and a pair of plastic skis, so these are his first REAL pair!  Of course he immediately wanted to put the boots on (he get's that from me!) and wobbled around for about 30 seconds before mastering the "ski boot walk!"  It was so cute and everyone in the store seemed to enjoy watching him.  I think he was good for business... lifting everyone's spirit... maybe a future job for him?!  Next he popped on a pair of skis and took off around the store.  So we're headed to Pico this morning- I'm hoping.  Jacob woke up at 4:30 this morning really yelling, which is not like him.  He felt hot...  He went right back to sleep but has been restless and still feels hot.  I'll take his temperature when he gets up.  Please don't let him be sick!!  PLEASE!

Well it's been a while since I've written much, so what is going on... hmmm... It's been snowing, A LOT, and more is on the way today.  This storm might be messy with some sleet mixed in, but hopefully not.  It's also been pretty cold.  Jacob is awesome!  He's such a smarty!  The other day one of his cars went under the stove so I got a long spoon to get it out.  A little bit later I noticed he was on his belly with the same spoon working on getting the car out himself!  The next day he put one of his "credit cards" under the basement door.  He went to the drawer for the spoon but came back with a measuring cup!  He tried to put the handle under the door but it wouldn't fit.  So he went and got the spoon, but unfortunately that wouldn't work either.  He's a little scientist!!  He's also told me a few times now when he's gone to the bathroom and needs his diaper changes- he points to his diaper and says, "go."  And he's discovered he can make his highchair go across the kitchen floor by basically throwing his body back and forth!  LOL!

Happy New Year!

It's 01-01-11!  Happy New Year's Day, everyone!  Jacob was up at 5:30 this morning.  I was really praying for him to sleep until 7:00 since he didn't go to bed until 9:00, oh well.  I was sound asleep by 9:30... another year of missing the ball drop!  Last night we had Chinese take out and Ted lit some 2011 sparklers out on the deck.  Jacob really liked those- too bad they didn't last longer.  Jacob had the most fun standing and jumping on Dada- he's lucky he didn't break a rib!  LOL

Yesterday was very warm and the conditions at Pico in the morning were fabulous- soft packed powder!  I hope it doesn't rain today on all this nice snow!

 Two Mr. Potato Heads!
 Stick 'em up!

Here's hoping 2011 is a great one!
