biggest smile

Jakey (as we lovingly call our Jacob) has the best smile.

He can melt any heart with that big grin of his. Even as a small(er) baby when he would smile his whole body would contract into a little ball of glee. This smile was for mom. I am all he wants in the world when he's hungry or tired and Margie is all he wants when it's playtime. We all (including Dad) get the biggest grins when he sees us. He is such a sweet boy and so good natured it's a lot of fun having him around.

He is in a very usual spot in front of the doors looking outside in this photo. He loves to be outside and since the winter came he is usually in this spot looking and longing to be outside. We make it out when weather permits and he thinks that dirt, grass and leaves are the greatest thing in the world, as any small boy would. My biggest challenge is to keep him from eating too much of them while he's out there.

I just love that sweet little face of his and especially that smile, he'll be breaking hearts before we know it.

I am a blogger

Even though Dan thinks that Blogging is a little goofy, I think it's a great way to share. I was looking at some of my family's blogs and thought how much I liked to see what was going on in their lives and so I decided to share what was going on in our lives. Plus my kids are so cute I want to show them off, as any mother would. So, I am trying this out and hope you'll add us to your favorites and check up on us Okee's periodically, I will, in turn, try to make regular postings.
