we're getting ready to head to pittsburgh for thanksgiving to see lots and lots of family. as we prepare for this holiday, we can't help but think of how much we have been blessed and how we have so much to be thankful for.
every day we love jacob more and more; and the more we love him, we often ponder of the GREATEST sacrifice the Lord made of HIS OWN SON, to pay the punishment for OUR sins, so that we might have eternal life. we are truly thankful for that great gift of love. it has taken on a whole new meaning for us now that we have a son of our own. we are so thankful that God has given us this special gift and the privilege of being "mom" and "dad" to jacob.
we are also so thankful for the friends that God has surrounded us with in Kentucky. it is such a blessing to us, even though we are away from family, we have our friends who have done so much for us to fill that family "void". MANY THANKS to the Nordines, Brysons, and Ashleys who have been a huge help to our family during the past year.
we are thankful for our health, our home, and our work, our family and our church family.

Praise God from whom ALL blessings flow~ we are so THANKFUL!

new specs

since my husband doesn't read this blog, i feel at liberty to post pictures that he would consider unnecessary. so this one's for you, hun. (in case you DO read this) :)

jesse decided to go for a newer look following his recent eye appointment at the optometrist. jesse's new specs:

6 months of spit-up: our survival story

wow! can't believe jacob is already 6 months! he saw the Dr for his 6 month check-up on tuesday. Dr said he's looking good- 18 pounds 10 oz (75th percentile for his age) and 28 inches long (95th percentile). he was still not concerned with jacob's vast and never-ending quantities of spit-up, but wrote jacob an Rx for infant Zantac. we just started the doses last night....keeping our fingers crossed! while we know this won't completely diminish the spit-up, we are hoping and praying for it to reduce the amount and frequency.

jacob's aunt rachael and aunt joanna came to visit this weekend (and cousin Bo for a short while). the girls adored jacob and had a blast making him smile.

aunt joanna was inducted into the spit-up hall of fame.

they got to visit the museum and see jesse's handiwork.

aunt rachael bought jacob his first pair of chuck taylors- which we finally got the right size to fit his fat feet. jacob seems to really like his new kicks...he couldnt keep his eyes off of them.
