I can't believe it has come and gone!

This past Wednesday, November 15th, we celebrated Jacob's 1st Birthday!! We had family and friends over for a party and Jacob seemed to love being center of attention. We only had one major meltdown - so not too bad. It's amazing how quickly the first year has passed by. I can only imagine how quickly the rest will pass . . .I try so hard to cherish each moment, whether it be in the middle of the day or the middle of the night (which can be hard). It has been so amazing to watch him grow and change over this first year. I am excited to see what year two will bring.

We have a walker!!

I'm not sure at what point do we call it "officially walking". Jacob has been toolin' around with one of his push toys since the ends of August. And watch out, he is quick with it! As of October 30, he started taking 5-6 steps towards someone or something and each day since he has added more and more steps. He's even getting the hang of turning around and regaining balance before he face plants. If he needs to get somewhere quick, his preference is still crawling or his push toy - but it won't be long before those are a distant memory . . .

I have discovered that it is very difficult to get a picture of him walking. You'll just have to trust me that he is walking in these photos and not just standing.

Halloween Fun!

For Jacob's first Halloween, we had fun dressing him up as "T I double Gu R!" I don't think he even had any clue that he was dressed up. He did to seem to have fun going from Nan's house, to Grammie and Papas, to Uncle Les and Aunt Lori's to Farmor and Grandpa's. I just don't think he understood why we saw so many people in one night!
