well, he surprised us, and slept amazingly well at night without his paci. his naps were not as good- he would wake up and be very upset- almost inconsolable. but as the weekend went on, the naps got slightly better. so, time will tell. we are so proud of our big boy for making the transition smoother for us than we thought! daddy got sentimental and we ended up keeping just one paci, which we tucked away out of sight. :)
we are so excited for our friends zach and danielle who welcomed their second child, Elizabeth Agnes (Ellie), into the world on saturday. jesse and i were able to visit their family yesterday and see the beautiful girl! both mom and baby are healthy and are doing great! congratulations!
yesterday morning, in our rush to get out the door for church, i asked jesse to grab some diapers for [jacob's] diaper bag (he says i didn't specify which child). it wasn't until after church that i realized we had sent kate's size 3 diapers into nursery with jacob. (jacob is wearing size 5 these days, and maybe should be wearing 6's, if you can just imagine the size difference). so yes indeed, jacob needed a clean diaper during nursery, and yes indeed, he was wearing a size 3 when we picked him up! the nursery staff must have gotten a good laugh out of that- or else they were really worried for jacob because his parents must be loony! let's just say that a size 3 diaper on a 27+ pound toddler looks like the fit of speedo swimming trunks. sorry jacob!
sorry grandparents, no pictures today!

and speaking of dinner... i started kate on rice cereal last week. i have only tried twice- this first time she did great, the second time was not so good. maybe i am starting too early, but i feel like she is not being sustained long enough with just milk. she has her 4 month check up tomorrow, so i will ask the dr what he thinks. anyway- some cute pictures jesse got from her first cereal experience.
also, kate is now in competition with isabel in "falling asleep in strange places". here she is after a session of bouncing in her bouncy seat.
and last but not least, jesse thought this was hilarious, and wanted me to blog about it. i told him our blog audience wouldn't appreciate it as much as we do. so, this is for you, honey. here is jackson, balancing coasters on paws. and another one jesse thought everyone should see, jackson sleeping with his tongue out....maybe it is time for jesse to start his own blog!
