My sweet baby boy

This boy is almost one. Are you kidding me? 2 more weeks. Ridiculous. Jacob is walking a little bit. He's such a fraidy cat about letting go and doing it, but he can take a few steps at a time before he sits down and crawls to where ever he's trying to go. I don't think he talks very much, but he says Mama, Da, cat, hey, bye. He can roar and bark and quack. My mom and sister say he says thank you, but I haven't heard it. He follows directions now. Josh was amazed on Saturday to learn that he will bring you something (his paci, the ball) if you ask him too. I like to distract him from getting into things by asking him where his ball is.

Jacob is a sweet baby boy. He loves his sister and her baby dolls. You'll notice the slobber on this poor little baby's head. Jacob was kissing her. Now he won't give me kisses, but he'll love up the baby doll. Whatever.

He makes the funniest faces. He was just making the baby kiss pup-dog.

Jacob and the ball. He and Lily are constantly fighting over the ball, but Lily is tricky. You might not even notice her take it from him, but she does it all the time. I think little Jacob is going to give her a run for her money though; he's got a mischevious streak, I think.

He is a very happy little man. He loves to squeal and now stick out his tongue. He has a giraffe tongue just like his sister. (He also has eczema, which is why his cheeks look so red. Any suggestions for clearing that up?) I am going to try to get Easter pictures this next week, so hopefully I'll be able to show these babies all fixed up and pretty!

Yay for an update!! You and Josh make some cute kids :) Any, by the way, I'm not terribly interested in quilting, but I do have a sewing machine and the desire to 'peck with the hens'. Does this mean I can invite myself to the hen party??

Jack has eczema pretty bad too. When it flares up, I apply Aquaphor like crazy and it will go away for a little while. I also bought some natural soap at Whole Foods a while back but not sure if it works, I haven't even taken it out of the car.

Arbonne makes a baby lotion that I use for my eczema. It's unscented and it is so good. I can order you some if you want me too.
