Happy Birthday!

Happy, happy 2nd birthday my dear, sweet baby Jacob!  I cannot believe you are two!  You amaze us daily with all that you can do.  All we have to do is show you something once and you can do it.  Let's see... what are you up to now... You like to walk up and down the stairs standing up like a big boy holding the railing and a finger to steady yourself.  You change your shoes frequently, from sneakers to flip flops to ski boots, and you can jump.  You follow lots of 2-step directions, like "Pick up the book and put it on the table."  You learn new words very quickly, try to repeat what you hear and ask, "What's that?" about everything!  You are a great eater, liking just about everything and doing very well with a fork and spoon.  At swimming you like to stand on the side and jump in to my arms and are starting to blow bubbles.  And you really love to walk around the shallow end and up and down the ramp, rinsing your feet in the tub of water before getting in and out each time!  At gymnastics you can jump on the trampoline, step over cones on the balance beam (holding onto a finger), and like to go through tunnels and do mountain rolls.  You really like to read books now, especially Richard Scarry's Cars and Trucks from A to Z and Open the Barn Door.  Before nap and bedtime we even read longer books that are a real story!  I'm so glad you're developing a love of books.  Your favorite toys include your tools, cars, trucks, and garage, blocks, and slide.

Every day just gets more and more fun with Jacob.  I can't wait to see what is next to come.  We are so very blessed that he was sent to us!
