this is what happens when you stop drinking coffee and you forget there is leftover coffee in the coffee pot from when your mom came to visit over 3 weeks ago...
look at the color scheme. it's like a tropical jungle of mold. kind of like a piece of art. no?

oh, and i forgot to add...my mother also made an appearance as one of the Belmonts. she stands on the left of the 3 ladies. isnt she beautiful?! :)
he couldn't have just tried to make us feel special by making his first word be "ma-ma" or "da-da", instead he chose the word "light". we are still impressed. :) not only can he say "ight" (light), but he also associates the light switch with the light being 'on', and is a pro at flipping the light switch off and on. (you can see him pointing to the light switch in the video. sorry about the bad camera work- i was holding 22 pounds of jacob in one arm and the camera in the other. i think i did pretty good considering.)
he has also quickly added "ted-ted" (teddy bear) and "ah duh" (all done) to his vocabulary. what a cutie!

jacob is fascinated with his diaper box- wants to climb on it, over it, in it. so jesse put him inside and gave him a short ride around the apartment. jacob loved it.
i have been loving mcdonalds happy meals lately- seems like just enough food- and you dont feel tremendously guilty after you eat one. and the perk- toys for jacob. in my happy meal the other day i received a "pirates of the carribean" tattoo (to go with the pirates bandana from 2 weeks ago, and the pirates compass that ms. candace gave jacob last week). we didnt realize until after we applied it that the label said "not for use on sensitive skin or infants". oops. glad he didnt have a reaction!
and lastly- a picture of jackson- getting ready for baby #2

my mom and dale visited the week following easter, their spring break. (i have long forgotten what those 2 words really mean)
jesse and i started the membership class at Grace Fellowship this past sunday. it will go for six weeks. jacob will be best friends with the nursery staff by then!
jacob has been growing by leaps and bounds...still not walking by himself yet, but he does pretty good moving along the couch and from one piece of furniture to another. any day now.
jacob - easter 2008
this 1st trimester is a bit more rough than i remember with jacob. i've been stuck with the morning sickies for almost 4 weeks now- it lasted only 2 weeks with jacob. and since i am chasing jacob around, my energy level is just about at zero. i have been so appreciative of jesse who has been a huge help around the house.
