Happy Birthday, Jacob!


Well, my baby turned 5 today! It wasn't that long ago that I thought 5 seemed like years away, but it's here and my little guy is not so little anymore! Jake is one fantastic kiddo! He has an amazing personality-- he's funny, witty, goofy, creative, quirky, adventurous, loving, gracious, and he has a wonderful heart! We feel so very blessed to be able to call him our son. What a treasure he is!

We've had fun celebrating his birthday. He had a few friends over for a Pirate treasure hunt last week, and today he woke up to a birthday breakfast, a trip to the zoo, and then a stop for a birthday cupcake! I have to say that I've really enjoyed keeping his birthday family centered and low key. It's been fun! His present from us is a trip to the Circus on Thursday!!!! He's been asking to go to the circus for over 2 years.... and they're coming to town this week! Perfect timing!

A note from the Daddy (I took this off Mike's blog. Yes, we have our own blogs!!)

Jake is my first born son (and my only son) and I love him so much. Today was his birthday and he turned 5. Much to the chagrin of his mother he is mostly like me. This means that we connect very deeply with each other. I’ve told his mother that once she figures me out that she’ll understand her son as well, so good luck with that. He is a wonderful and loving big brother to his little sister and I’m very proud of him. So to my fishing buddy, wrestling partner, Jonny Quest watching pal, Wii adversary, stair jumping daredevil, pancake & sausage loving wonderful son, I wish you a happy birthday. Your daddy loves you all the way to the moon and stars and back again.

Here's a few pics of our sweet little guy. :)

Born on Labor Day!!

One week old! He was bigger here than Grace was when we brought her home at 3 months!!

5 months

9 months

Crazy binkie guy!

All "dressed up"

The beach: his favorite place!
Jacob has wowed us all by being the most amazing big brother. He loves Grace to pieces and he really doesn't like to do any type of activity without Grace being with him-- pretty darn sweet.
The pirates at the party!And... to show a piece of Jake's personality, here's a video of him last summer, right before we left to get Grace! Jake is quite an introvert... if you meet him, good luck trying to get him to even say hi-- it will take him a good couple of hours to start talking. But..... he's quite the performer and he's constantly telling us that he wants to be a Rock Star!! Lucky me! :)

Happy Birthday Jake! Everytime I watch this, I start rocking back and forth with you, then of course I laugh out loud, but I keep on rocking. May the pirate in you always be filled with music!

Love the video! He is about adorable and you can really tell how much he loves his sister. I remember seeing him at the picnic following her around. Happy Birthday Jacob!
