Some pictures of Jacob in the snow.
At first he didn't want to leave the porch because he didn't like the snow. He did adjust but still would only walk where the snow was already packed down so he didn't sink in!
The last one is Jacob catching snowflakes with his tongue!

In His Time

In His time, in His time,
He makes all thing beautiful in His time.
Lord, my life to You I bring,
May each song I have to sing,
Be to You a lovely thing, in Your time.

In Your time, in Your time,
You make all thing beautiful in Your time.
Lord, my life to You I bring,
May each song I have to sing,
Be to You a lovely thing, in Your time.

In loving memory of Jaidon

I wanted to post a picture of the shadow box picture I made in memory of Jaidon. So here it is.
Dan wrote the poem which I am sure you can't read but I think I posted it before.

Nothing new to report

I wanted to update, except I have nothing to update! Everything has been pretty much the same around here. Jacob keeps growing. He can count to 7 all by himself and to 13 with help. He also can almost say the alphabet with out help. He can spell Yankees!!!! He cracks me up.
We started allergy vaccines on Toby. He get's a shot every other night for the next few weeks and then every 3 weeks for a long time! I give them to him so I don't have to take him in all the time but I feel bad doing it to him all the time. I have lost another 2 pounds! I am down I think 2 inches around my waist and 2 1/2 or 3 around my hips. It's coming off easier than I thought although I slowed down with all the valentines candy and then a set back due to emotional issues. I still have occasional bad days and on those days I eat poorly. I am getting better with that.
Ok so maybe I did have some things to update.

Our new niece

Sandy was born on February 7th 2008 at 4:04 am weighing 8lb 3 oz and 20 3/4 inches long. She is adorable. Mom and baby are doing great!

Jacob's party

My little boy is 2! I can't believe it. I'm so glad everyone was healthy so we could finally celebrate! Jacob enjoyed his party and having so much attention. He loved opening presents and eating cake! We gave him a small piece but he was still really hyper after it! Here are some pictures.

Long night

Long night, but for a great reason. I am an aunt again! My sister-in-law had her baby. I'm so proud of her. She did it 100% naturally! As soon as Jacob wakes up we're going to go and visit. YAY!

The whole family is finally better!!! I still have my cough but that's it. I am so happy to have a healthy family. I have a study session planned with Barb at work tonight. She really helped me 2 weeks ago when we studied so I am glad to have her help me again. I'm really lucky having such helpful friends at work. Jacob's party is on saturday. He keeps talking about it so I know he is excited.
Today it is really nice out...well not nice but not really cold. It's cloudy. Jacob and I decided to take a walk around the block and get some fresh air. It was so nice. We both have fun. He walked the whole thing. He wanted to take his stroller but I convinced him to walk. I offered to take the wagon but he didn't want to take all his boys out of it so we didn't. I wish it would stay warmer like this. It's really nice to not have to wear a coat and to be able to go outside.
I once again have no pictures. Sorry. I'll try to take some tomorrow.

No party :(

We had to reschedule Jacob's party to next saturday. He started vomiting again this morning. It really stinks because there are some people who can't come next saturday and we just bought all the food last night :( Jacob is going to the doctor today to make sure it's still just the virus. I hated having to call everyone today because we just told everyone on wednesday that it's still on. He was getting better. He is actually eating right now which is good. He's having crackers. He told me his throat and tummy hurt. Poor kid! So it looks like I will have to venture out into the rain today. I'm really glad we didn't make his cake last night like we were suppose to. My brother and his fiance were suppose to come this weekend too. I don't think they'll be able to come next weekend :( Jacob loves seeing them. My dad is also still sick so I don't think they will come so they don't risk getting sick because they are both really busy with school. This really stinks! I want my little boy to be better. No one wants to be sick on their birthday. His present came in the mail yesterday so we will still give it to him tomorrow and we will celebrate and maybe my parents will come over to celebrate or we can go over their house to get out of the house for once. We'll see. I'll leave you with two pictures. Sorry we haven't taken a lot of pictures since we've all be sick....I am finally feeling a lot better today!
