We made a trip to Corvallis with the Oehling family to visit Aunt Libby and Uncle Joe. It was so much fun! Nate was able to take off a day of work (an uncommon occurrence) but it was a great mini-vacation. Jacob just LOVED the attention, he had a wonderful time and adjusted well to being in a new place. Thanks again Libby and Joe! Oh, and I can't forget... Libby treated me to a 90 minute hot rock massage for my birthday - it was INCREDIBLE! I highly recommend it to anyone. Thanks Lib!
I wanted to thank everyone for their phone calls, cards, and gifts on my birthday. It was a great birthday, even though I am now 27 (closer to 30). Yikes! Nate took me out for a romantic dinner on the waterfront, while my mom babysat Jake. And I can't forget about my new stove and dishwasher (early birthday presents).
We got to see some friends Jason and Mandy from college and meet their 2 beautiful daughters, Taylor and Rilee. Jacob had a great time playing with the girls.

Jacob and Aidan - they had a great time hanging out together during the weekend, it was so cute to see them together for a couple of days.

Last Saturday night, we went to a Mariners baseball game. Nate gets awesome tickets through Walsh, we are lucky to get them often, we were 9th row behind the Mariners dugout. We went with some friends Joe and Leanne and had a great time.
My grandma from Eugene took the train up on Wednesday and stayed through the weekend. It was great to see her and Jacob loved it! He gave her kisses and kisses and more kisses, he couldn't get enough of her. Thanks for the visit Abby, we love you!
Jacob is now 7 1/2 months old, can you believe it? I am really enjoying this stage, he is learning so much and so quickly, it's hard to keep up with him. He is crawling some, mostly backwards and a few steps forwards. He has his 2 bottom teeth (accompanied by a few rough nights) he doesn't let us see them very often, but they are certainly sharp! My favorite thing is he is mimicking everyone, he will try any gesture or any noise you make. It's so adorable, I laugh so hard, I realize I am crying. He is snapping his fingers, waving, clapping and loves to make raspberry noises with his mouth, like a copy-cat game with you. He laughs so hard when you play back with him, I will try to capture it on video and post it.

Jacob loves to be on daddy's shoulders!
Have to throw in a naked picture now and again.
Jacob had his first taste of grapes a few days ago. As you can see by his face, he wasn't quite sure about them at first. We also put part of a popsicle in the mesh bag, and he loved it! Probably felt good on his gums.
Last weekend, Nathan and his co-workers celebrated being on their job site for a year. We all met at Buco di Beppos for dinner in Seattle. We were outside waiting for people to arrive and I was trying to get a picture of Jacob with the space needle behind him, but there was so much going on around him, he wouldn't cooperate! I have about 10 shots, and this was the best one.

We had some very important visitors this weekend. Jerrod, Maggie, Whitney and Kennedy came to stay with us for 3 nights and we loved each and every minute of it! The girls are doing so well, Whitney is weighing over 8 lbs and Kennedy is catching up weighing over 7 1/2 lbs. They celebrated their 2 month birthday on Saturday.
Doctor's appointment on March 9th.
Here are some pictures of Jake over the last few days:
