A Frosty Fifth

On the 23rd of this month Lubbock had its first freeze so Jakob had a bit of a frosty morning on his 5 month birthday. I guess fall is officially here, unfortunately for this summer lovin girl, but nothing that a stylish hat can't take care of for the Jake man! Look at those sweet cheeks!

Tagged for RANDOMNESS!

So my dear friend, Les, tagged me on her blog to disclose 7 random things about myself, so here ya go Les!

  1. I can spread my toes like no other!
  2. I must put lotion on my feet before getting in bed.
  3. I will not let the pickles on my sandwich touch the mayo. GROSS!
  4. I, like my friend Meghan ( who was also tagged ) cannot hide my emotions. Sometimes I can hide them verbally, but unfortunately my facial expressions give away my true feelings.
  5. Walnuts make my tongue itch.
  6. I have had dreams of people dying before they do. Don't get too freaked out, it has only happened 2 times with patients that are on or have been on my caseload. Not family or friends!
  7. I absolutely HATE and I mean HATE fat on meat or meat on the bones. Ask my mom or Keith. They kindly remove all fat from meat or meat from bones for me! Weird, I know.

So there ya are Leslie, I hope ya get a good laugh from my randomness!

A little Behind....

So I am a little behind, seeing how my last entry was at the first of Sept. What can I say? Things have been very busy with the Rotan Gang! Jake is now almost 5 months, will be next week on the 23rd! I can't believe it! At his four month "wellness check up" with Dr. Steve, Jake weighed 13 pounds and 6 ounces and was 25 inches long. He was in the 25th percentile for weight but the 60th for height. He is talking, yelling, and spitting as well as reaching and grabbing objects. Yes, the hair pulling has begun! He is now pushing his soother out of his mouth so that he can slip in his right thumb! He has officially, finally, won Loa as a friend as she will finally sit near him, even with him eagerly exploring her nose and ears. We had a great time with Keith's family earlier this month and then with mine down in Dallas a few weeks ago. Here are a few pics from the last month or so...

Hope you enjoy the video. One month glance. Keith
