3 Months

Jake turned three months old yesterday. All is well here. His personality is really starting to present itself! He is talking (sometimes yelling!), smiling like crazy (even at the pretty girl sitting behind us in church this morning), rolling over from tummy to his back, and he does a great fake cough when we aren't paying enough attention to him! Jake seems to like his daycare, he appears content there and gets lots of love from Ms. Jeannie. We are enjoying this little one so much!

Keith helped me with uploading a cute video that we shot with the video camera. Keith loves his new toy and is always testing it on Jake. Jake is chatting with Loa in this clip.

School Days

Jakob's first day of school (the new lingo for "daycare", it seems) was last Thursday. Even though I just went back to work this Monday, Keith and I felt that a couple of dry runs were in order for adjustment purposes. Adjustment for Keith and me that is! We really are impressed with the daycare... it's still difficult to leave him though. As Keith said, "He just seems so small there!", but we know that we have a Big God that provides a hedge of protection all around Jake. Here are some pics of his first day with Ms Jeanie and Miss Michelle!

Here are a few other pictures from this past week. Jake is really starting to play and talk; such a happy little one!

Could it be the determination and concentration of the great Michael Jordan??

Go Michael Phelps!!

All ready for church.

Dallas Excursion

Last weekend, Keith and Jake and I went to the Dallas area to visit my family. We got to hang out with Nana and Pop, John and Julie, and Allison and Abby. We got to see Steph and Aaron for a short time and then they left the kids at Mom's and were on their way into Dallas for a weekend, just the two of them! Probably the first in a very long time. We had a great time with their girls though!
Mom and Trevor, thanks for your hospitality, we enjoyed the weekend so much!
