Happy 3 month Birthday, baby Jake! It’s hard to believe that you have been in our family just a mere three months–it seems as though we have known you forever!
This month you celebrated your first Thanksgiving (even though you couldn’t eat any of it), and you had a great time. Your big cousins wanted to hold you and kiss you all the day long. Can I blame them?! Not at all, of course…I love to do the same.
You earned your first nickname from your sister one afternoon when you awoke from your, ahem, nap (if we could call it that!). Your sister burst into your room and said loudly and excitedly “JAKE MAN!” She just loves to rescue you any time you are crying! This month we also found out that you have quite a little arm on you. You love to toss your toys across the room and Rachel loves to retrieve them and bring them back to you. When she hands you your toys back and you flash her the sweetest little smile, I can’t help but think that you look at her like she is some kind of hero to you. I love to watch you two interact together. The way you search the room for her is just priceless. Your love for each other is such a beautiful thing.
Your sleeping habits are still a little scattered, but you are happy and content when you are awake. You coo and “talk” all day long. When you let out your sweet little laugh my heart can’t help but melt with love for you. According to you, your hands belong in your mouth at all times. And tummy time? That’s for the birds! You would rather be on your back looking at the world around you.
You love to go out to lunch with Mommy’s friends and are always so patient, even when it is feeding time. You let others hold you and love on you and you don’t mind waiting until we get home to eat. You have your Daddy’s “Go with the flow” attitude already. Your facial expressions change from happy to excited to curious to sad in a moment’s notice.
You are figuring out this big old world little by little. Infact, just this morning while I was taking your pictures you decided to really roll over for the first time! I missed the actual roll but I got a cute before and after shot. You were so proud!
How did we ever manage to be so blessed? With you in our family life will never be the same–and we are not looking back for a second!
I love you baby Jake! You are a blessing to us all!
Happy Jakie Day!
