Well, I kinda have a LOT of things to update y’all on!
Jake took his first steps yesterday. I mean really, it wasn’t a big deal.
…Ok, maybe I’m not that bad but we do have some big events to share!
Big Event #1 – This past Friday was my last day at work. AH! I won’t go into the details but Seth & I have been hoping this could happen for a long time. God opened some doors…and we ran through them! I do have some part-time work lined up that will start in a couple months…but for now I am home enjoying our little boy! What a blessing!
Big Event #2 – Jake rolled from his back to his tummy! He hates being on his tummy so he really had no incentive to roll that way. The second you put him on his tummy, he rolls right back over. He’s a man who knows what he wants! Yesterday however, we enticed him with his Fisher Price puppy. He just couldn’t resist. He’ll normally roll as far as he can to the side to just avoid that final turn. But something about that singing puppy made him change his mind…
I think he might think it’s another baby. He hugs the puppy and chews on him like they’re the best of friends!
Big Event #3 – Jake tried peas! We sometimes have trouble getting him to eat rice cereal and oatmeal. Most of it ends up on his bib and then he plays with his bib instead of eating. I think he also prefers it as a teething toy since it’s rubber. See below:
Seth and I homemade peas and green beans (well, we pureed them…we didn’t grown them in our nonexistent garden or anything) for Jake this past weekend and I guess I need to get to work on some sweet potatoes and squash! If he’s anything like his parents, he’ll love food!
He cries everytime we put him in it and much prefers the Exersaucer. Surely this will change when he realizes how much energy he can burn in there! Kiddo already kicks his legs ALL THE TIME like a maniac and gets so out of breath. Should we be worried??
