Sweet Puppy Love

Back in August, I took Jake over to my friend Erika's house to see her new lab puppies. Jake and Tatum had a great time! Jakob loves dogs, he calls them all "yaya" for Loa or "woo woo" (his bark). Thanks Erika!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAKE!!

So for Jake's big #1 we had a Dr. Suess party. I was curious to see how he would do during the party... with all the people and acitivities, but he did great! He acted like he knew that it was his big day. He hit the ground running that day and had such a big time. It was so much fun. He loved getting tangled up in the helium balloons that we got him and dragging them around everywhere saying "ba ba ba"! He demolished his cake, pounding it on his tray and then to the floor. He did save a few bites to try but was more intereseted in playing in it. And his favorite presents, at least initially, probably more "ba, ba,ba" (this time for balls that John and Julie got him) or the box of Kleenex from his clever Daddy. He had such a fun time seeing everyone, thanks so much for sharing May 23rd with us!

This month he has mastered running, stealing toilet paper off the roll, all different sounds and intonations, and he loves animals, making his funny highpitched "OOh" sound everytime he sees one. His favorite toy at daycare is a pink glow worm HA HA; Keith loves that! This little one is very loving, what a blessed year we have had with him.

First Mother's Day!

I am so thankful that God chose me to be Jake's mom. We are so blessed to have the opportunity to be his earthly parents that one day Jake may know his eternal Father intimately. Here are some pics with my boys on Mother's Day.





11 months (April 23rd)

On April 23rd, Jake turned 11months old. Mommy has been a little more tired the past month as Jake started to walk on April 1st, which means, that now we are in a constant game of chase! Now at 11 months he is moving and grooving really well. Some of his favorite activites: walking in circles, playing in the kitchen drawers, eating yogurt, taking Loa for a walk, cooing in a highpitched voice at his stuffed Easter bunny, tiger,and puppy, and walking in more circles! He is also signing for "more" (especially for more yogurt!) and we are working on "please" and "all done." He also got his first hair cut with my friend Dwayna, he was such a big boy! But best of all, he is initiating hugs and pats to us... so sweet.








Before....



After!

10 Months Today!

Jake is the big 10 months old today. It is so fun to watch him grow and learn. He is standing, with improved balance, but no steps just yet .... thank goodness. He started clapping his hands a few weeks ago, which is so cute. He is also screaming bloody murder in protest when we take something from him... which is NOT so cute! He is not just jabbering like crazy but jabbers with more and more amplification each day. He is so sweet and loving though, he saw Keith give me a kiss on the forehead, then he proceded to give me the famous open mouth baby slobbery kiss on my nose. I kid you not, my entire nose was in his mouth! It's the thought that counts! Loa is becoming quite the buddy as well. He wants her in his room at bedtime, and is very anxious to try her raw hide bones. He also loves to watch her as we take them for walks and when she swims in the playa lakes. We treasure each day and are excited for the next with this little booger!

9 Months (Feb 23rd)

So again I am late getting pictures up of Jake at nine months; however these pictures are from 2/23, his 9 month birthday! Jake is doing great, we saw Dr. Steve on the 23rd. Jake weighed 19lbs and 6 ounces (20th percentile). He was 28 1/4 inches long (65th percentile). Dr. Steve is a little worried about his weight but really just thinks he is going to be tall and skinny. (For those of you that haven't known Keith for long, he weighed 150 lbs soaking wet when he graduated high school!!) So Jake comes by it honestly! The past month he has mastered the "sprint crawl", especially when he has something that he knows he is not to have. He is also pulling up with ease and beginning to furniture walk for a few steps, here and there. He is able, with lots of concentration, to pick up a puff and eat it; however, is not yet tolerating any foods with lumps (without gagging that is). Jake also is jabbering like crazy and loves to tell us all about it.... whatever "it" is! He moved up to the nursery 2 last Monday and is doing well, but we will forever love his nursery 1 teacher, Jeannie, she is awesome. This maybe more stats than anyone wanted, but really it is so I can remember when he did what, so that I can document in Jakes baby book!

Santa and Sweet Abby

I found these pictures while posting the previous post and couldn't pass them up. Santa brought Jake the swing for the backyard (he also had fun putting it up!). And Abby was all about loving on "Baby Jake"when they were here at Christmas time.




8 Months & Busy, Busy, Busy!

Our little man Jake is BUSY, to say the least! Today Jake is 8 months old! And boy, has he gotten busy over the past month! He is jabbering like crazy. He has gone from the army crawl to full force, nothing holding him back power crawl, and the little boogar even pulled up on the fireplace the other day. He is also starting to really think that Daddy is funny and watching Keith's every move. He also loves to try to catch Loa's tail, hide out under the coffee table, and he loves to try to sneak to get eletrical cords! No "well visit" to Dr. Steve this month but we did have a sick visit (so sad to see him sick) this past Tuesday. His weight then was 18 pounds 3 ounces! What a big boy! We love you Jakester!
