My Big "J"




Well we didn't get many smiles out of Jacob this time. Seems the camera has a delay and the kids can only hold their grin for so long. Oh well at least you can see how big he is getting and so handsome too! The boys in their sunglasses was so cute! Jacob told me today that we are going to China. Don't know where he heard that word even. Then the other day in Sunday School he prayed for "Jesus to please save his brother Jaron". That is as precious as it gets! Oh and I can't forget today in church he layed his head on my lap and said "Mommy you are my friend". He is getting so sweet lately. And a few weeks ago he said "Mommy I was your first baby in your belly." Just out of the blue don't know where it came from we weren't even talking about babies that day. I can't believe he is going to be 4 years old in 16 DAYS!

Long time no see...






Well I haven't posted in a while so I made up for it this time with lots of pictures. Hope you enjoy them. Jaron is so smart. And he is growing. Still some feeding issues. He hasn't grasped the concept of sucking a bottle or cup yet but he will one day and I will SCREAM with excitement. There a few of him playing in the floor and a couple different ones where he is dressed for church. And them the one of him in a diaper. Those are Jacob's golf clubs but Jaron will not put them down. He carries them around all day swinging at everything. Reminds me a BAM-BAM! He is trying to talk some more make different noises but can't say more than Uh-oh and Mama.

TRAINS TRAINS TRAINS...

Jacob loves to shoot basketball. And he is really very good at it. Notice his little tan back. Finally getting some color. :-)


Thomas and Friends! He loves his trains. Sets up the track every day differently. This was a pretty cool setup he did all by himself. We were proud had to capture the moment.

Two Troublesome Teeth

Well Jaron has finally managed to cut his first 2 teeth on the bottom. They are barely poking through so I can't get a good picture of them yet. Notice the wet shirt. It is like that every where we go. Lots of slobber...

He thinks he's a big boy when he climbs up onto the treadmill. He is gaining weight and still doing alright with the baby food. We went to the ENT today and one of his tubes is not in place. So if he continues to have fluid build up behind the ear drum they may have to put him to sleep to insert a new tube in that left ear. It doesn't seem to bother him though. He is all over the house. Still only says "Mama". But thats fine with me :-)

Swimming!


Jacob has been getting outside more and you can tell it from his little tan face and arms. We try to get outside about an hour everyday and play in the pool. This was kinda a fake smile for Jacob but at least he did smile.

We went to my mother's boss's house to swim one day last week and Jacob insisted on being in the baby float I brought for Jaron. He stayed in it the entire time. I think he almost fell asleep.

Walking!!!

My handsome little man all dressed for church. He is officially walking. ALL OVER THE HOUSE! He looks so funny because he is walking earlier than Jacob did and it seems strange to us. But we are so glad he is developing normal.






Here's a good close up of Jaron and his handsome little lip and nose. I spiked his hair for fun and he grinned for the camera. He can't seem to get his hands out of mouth though. I noticed yesterday that the skin is breaking where his first tooth will come in. We haven't gotten much sleep either because of it. Tylenol and Orajel just aren't enough. I'll try to get a good picture of the tooth once it comes through. Oh and I can't forget to annouce how well he is doing on baby food. He has gained 2 lbs. in 1 month. I am SO PROUD! I have been feeding him a jar of something -sometimes 1 hour apart from each other just to pack in the calories. And he is on pediasure now for extra calories and nutrional value.
