So, I think it's time to add some writing to this post since we seem to have a toddler on our hands now, instead of a baby. While I miss the tiny baby, Jacob the toddler is just a blast. He walks around the house pushing his dump truck (thanks Aunt Sherri) and takes different items on a ride on the seat; then he sits down on the seat himself and rides around. He loves to read books and have books read to him, and he even "reads" along, in his own language, of course. He points in the direction he wants us to take him, usually saying "to-da" or "da" which has become easy to understand. When it's time to go outside (according to Jacob), he picks up his shoes and goes to the door, or goes to his stroller. We even go for walks outside with Jacob actually walking! He doesn't speak much English yet, but he is pretty easy to understand, and pretty good at expressing what he wants. So, to those of you friends and family who haven't seen the boy (or us) in a while, Jacob would like to invite you to come by for a visit! He can show you how he waves and he'll probably give you a great, big smile.
