Man Cannot Live on Fish Alone

Seth just reminded me I haven’t blogged in weeks.


I’ll be honest with you. For once in my life, I haven’t thought a whole lot about this blog. I feel like we’ve been so busy lately! Between somehow getting behind with school, Jake dropping his 2nd nap (saddest time of my life), and a house that never manages to stay clean, I haven’t had quite as much time to sit around. So there. Weak excuses, I know.

So let’s catch up.

Jake now has 7 teeth (4 on top, 3 on bottom). You would think those 7 teeth would help him explore the wonderful world of food but we seem to be content with the goldfish. Ohhhh the goldfish. I blame this on the church nursery. Goldfish are their snack of choice and we always get reports of, “He just takes all the other kid’s fish!”. Just what a proud parent wants to hear! Every once in awhile he’ll eat a great meal, but mostly he picks around at his tray and consumes something along the lines of 3 grapes and a cracker.

It’s a wonder we just now passed the 20 lb mark!

But Jake is definitely busy these days. He’s picked up his pace to more of a brisk walk which makes it a tad more exhausting to keep up with him. I never understood why children wore people out but now I get it. And I can’t explain it either! It’s semi-embarassing.

But he keeps himself busy…
It seems that Jake is getting an early start on his yoga. A master of the downward facing dog!

A couple weeks ago, we met Seth for lunch at Northshore Park in The Woodlands. There were many many ducks which were a big hit.

Jake kept squatting down like a duck and would try to follow them. Pretty sure he would’ve walked straight into the water if I’d let him.

I’m almost tempted to get some ducks for the backyard because they would entertain for hours!

Looooves going down the slide!

Phew. Now I feel better. We should have more to blog about soon…we’re heading up to College Station tomorrow to help cheer on the Aggies and then seeing lots of family next week for Thanksgiving. I’ll also be trying to talk Seth into putting up Christmas lights but he mostly tries to avoid the subject.


PLUS, my sister Rachel and her boyfriend Michael (fiancee!) just got engaged! We are so excited for them and can’t wait for them to tie the knot. See? Lots of things going on :)

  1. I think you should totally get some ducks for the backyard. It would be cool to watch your dogs kill them. (Nina’s watching me type this and just said, “Her dogs kill ducks??)

    Go Aggies!
