Baby Boy

Jakey: "Mom is there a baby in your tummy?"
Me: "Yes Jakey there is, it's going to be your new little brother."
Pause for a second....
Jakey: "Did you swallow him?" In case you didn't know.... #3 is due in September. Margie and I will be outnumbered with the boys. He was so squirmy in the untrasound the best photo they could get was this face shot, there's two more but they look more like skeletons. Thanks kid. I guess he'll take after his brother. Margie loves to feel him kick and Jakey won't sit still long enough to feel it yet, I think he's still trying to figure out how he got into my tummy, maybe when you're a little older Jake you'll understand, for now just keep wondering.

Mom, can I...?

Margie: "Mom, can I go outside and swim?"
Me: "No Margie it's too cold outside."
Margie: "Please, I'll wear my jacket." We can't wait for swimming weather at our house!

Happy Birthday Jakey!

April 22, 2007 Our sweet little readheaded stinker came to us. I can't believe he's already 3!!
We deciced to go to the Zoo with our neighbor Bella and her Grama (GeeGee) who has become our surrogate grama lately. We love hanging out with them after school several days a week. This trip was especially fun because there's a new baby Giraffe at the zoo. It was very cute!
Gee Gee bought Lemonade for a treat for everyone after a long walk at the zoo looking at all the animals. Then we went back to Bella's and had birthday cupcakes baked especially by GeeGee and Bella for Jakey. He loved them, well, the frosting mostly.
He got a few new Dragon toys from Gee Gee and Bella, One that makes a lot of noise, but is really fun and these eggs that we had to put in the bathtub to find out which kind of Dragon they were.Of course we had to get in the bath as soon as we got home. It was really cool, the eggs fizzed up in the bath until all the dragon parts were exposed and then we got to put them together. Obviously he loves them! Friday night we had a few friends, 3 because that's how old he turned, over for a party. He and Aiden would not stand still long enough for a non-blurry picture, this is the best one. He got some super fun presents... Jets, books, Dragons, clothes, and a t-ball set which he loves. Here's Dad giving a little instruction.And the Hit! Of course we finished the party off with the cake and ice cream. He wanted a Rocket ship cake it turned out pretty good. We love you Jakey. Happy Birthday!
