Catching Up

Here are a few cute pictures from the last week:

Jacob loves to be on daddy's shoulders!

Jacob is working hard on crawling! He is able to get on all fours, rocks back and forth, but hasn't been able to take off yet. Baby gates will be going up soon!

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.

Love those chubby cheeks!

Nathan and I in the restaurant. Nathan's boss recognized him during the dinner for all his hard work and revealed that Nathan will be moving into a Superintendent position soon. Congrats Nathan, I am so proud of you.
I want to post pictures of Nathan's job site soon (if you have visited us, I am sure you have visited there... Nathan will find any excuse to drive up to the job site)! It's pretty amazing and the largest job in Walsh's history.

Jacob can stand supported now.

His most favorite thing... clapping! He will clap all day with a smile on his face. I usually say, "yeah Jacob!" he giggles and keeps on clapping.

I am trying to get Jacob to take naps in his big boy crib during the day. There are 3 windows in his nursery, so it is very bright! We ordered some black out blinds to help him stay asleep... we were hoping. Today he laid in his crib for about 90 minutes before finally falling asleep on his own (without the swing or a bottle). This is how I found him when he woke up - "Get Me Out Of Here!"
