To my sweet baby boy,
Jacob, the last two years have brought so much joy to our lives. You are just the most unique, special little boy.
The last year we have seen you grow from a baby into a little boy. You are passionate, sensitive, stubborn, gentle, kind and loving. You love to be silly and laugh, and every time you see your Daddy you just want to play and wrestle, and you just laugh so hard the whole time.
You are a little weary of new situations, and are still pretty attached to Mommy, but once you're comfortable you warm up and have a great time. This year you have done swimming lessons and gymnastics. You love the balance beam, and you LOVE the water.
This year has brought a lot of change for you. In April you became a big brother at 17 months. Your Daddy and I have been so impressed with how you have handled this role. You are so loving and gentle with Charis. You hug and kiss her all the time, and every time she gets a little rough with you, you just gently move her hand off of you. I can tell you will be such a loving protective brother to her! We also moved for the 4th time in your life this year (WOW!) and I really hope this is the last move you have to go through for awhile!
You love animals, trucks, puzzles, music, anything artistic (coloring, painting, chalk), reading, trains, and pushing everything that has wheels. You would love it if you could eat snacks and play outdoors all day!
You are really not a big talker yet, but we started speech therapy this month and I'm SO excited to start hearing you speak! This Mamma can't wait to hear your sweet little voice talking. What you lack in words you certainly have no problem communicating in other ways! You are a smart little cookie and understand so much it alway's amazes me!
I can't wait to see what this next year brings, and pray that as we enter the "terrible twos" (it should be noted I think we've been there for awhile;) your Daddy and I are able to parent you with truth and grace and raise you to be the man that God has created you to be!
